Twitter, has deleted a tweet by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).
Nnamdi Kanu had vowed earlier that any soldier sent to the Southeast by the Nigerian Government will die.
Kanu, while reacting to the comment by President Muhammadu Buhari saying he would clamp down on those destroying government facilities in the South-East, had warned the army to keep off the region.
Buhari had while receiving a briefing from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu over the destruction of the commission’s offices by unknown gunmen in the region, said he would soon shock those behind the attacks.
And Kanu warned that no Nigerian Army deployed to the region would return alive.
Kanu made the assertion on Wednesday via a tweet on his official Twitter handle.
And nearly 24 hours after the Nigerian government announced a ban on the microblogging platform, the platform has deleted the ‘inciting’ tweet from Kanu.
Twitter deleted the comment on Saturday, saying it violates its rules.
Twitter had two days earlier also deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s controversial tweet about the civil war which some Nigerians found offensive.
