The suspension comes just two days after Twitter deleted President Buhari’s tweet which threatened to deal with “pro-Biafran secessionist” in “the language they will understand”.

Twitter said the offensive tweet violated the social media company’s abusive behavior policy, leading to a 12-hour suspension of President Buhari’s account.

 

KanyiDaily recalls that Twitter had also suspended Donald Trump earlier this year when he was still the US President, over alleged incitement of violence.
