IPOB reacts to indefinite suspension of Twitter by President Buhari’s govt
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the shutting down of Twitter in Nigeria by the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The separatist group said the decision of Buhari to ban Twitter in Nigeria is a confirmation that the country is under “hostage by Islamic fundamentalists and terror apologists.”
IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, made this known in a statement on Saturday.
“This wicked action of the Fulani-controlled federal government is nothing but a confirmation that Nigeria is under hostage by Islamic fundamentalists and terror apologists.
“This is further proof that Buhari is a tyrant and dictator whose only agenda is how to Fulanis and Islamise Nigeria.
“The tyrant Buhari was not the only President to be sanctioned by Twitter for posting hate speech but none of them ever shut down the platform in their country. As powerful as the former US President Donald Trump was, he never ordered the pulling down of Twitter platform from the US when the social media giant suspended his account.”
