Just In: Twitter Deletes Buhari’s Tweets On Insurrection

…..Says Post Violates Its Rules

Twitter has deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet wherein he threatened to treat Nigerians “misbehaving” in “the language they understand”.

In the tweet shared on Tuesday, Buhari spoke about the civil war experience and threatened to deal with those “bent on destroying” Nigeria through “insurrection.”

“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he had said.

But Twitter deleted the message on Wednesday, following widespread condemnation of the tweet.

The platform said the post violated its rules.

It is not immediately clear if the platform will take further action against the president.

Buhari had posted the message while warning o those “misbehaving in certain parts of the country”, particularly in the south-east where government infrastructures have been under attack.
