Biafra: Buhari’s contentious ‘civil war’ post deleted by Twitter
Twitter, a Social media giant, has deleted a contentious post put up by President Muhammadu Buhari, regarding the Biafra-Nigeria of the 1967-70 war whereby several lives were killed.
The post, which was shared on Tuesday, learn partially, “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War.
Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went by the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
This assertion didn’t go down effectively with many Nigerian citizens who felt Buhari’s remarks were harsh notably as his government had not spoken tough on northern insurgents who trigger crisis within the nation
Nevertheless, the President’s followers, headed by Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, who rose to fame by activism, fended Buhari’s tweet.
In a separate post IPOB leader, Kanu had warned the President and his handlers on the disturbing statement by Buhari, noting if any military operative deployed to the Southeast will not return alive.
He had tweeted on Wednesday extending the caution to Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu and others.
