Twitter refuse request to delete Nnamdi kanus account
The Federal Government has said that Twitter rejected its demand to delete the account of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, made this known on “Politics Nationwide,’’ a Radio Nigeria call-in program.
He said it was unfair to conclude that Twitter was suspended in the country because President Muhammadu Buhari’s message was deleted. He accused Twitter of consistently offering its platform to promote agenda that were inimical to the corporate existence of Nigeria, adding that the government was unambiguous that the action was taken because the platform was being used to promote the views of those who wanted to destabilize the clime.
“For one separatist promoter, Twitter has become his preferred medium.
“The promoter often utilized the site to order his followers to murder Nigerian military and police officers, burn down INEC offices, and destroy any symbols of Nigerian sovereignty.
“Every attempt to persuade Twitter to deny this separatist leader access to its site was dismissed,” he claimed.
Recall that last week, Twitter removed a tweet from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader.
Nnamdi Kanu had promised that any Nigerian soldier sent to the Southeast would perish.
