Popular microblogging platform, Twitter, has deleted inciting tweets by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

This comes barely 24 hours after the Nigerian government announced a ban on the activities of the platform.

WuzupNigeria reported that Twitter’s suspension was announced two days after the platform deleted the Civil War tweet of Nigeria’s President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s (retd).

The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, while announcing the ban on Friday ordered the National Broadcasting Commission to immediately commence the process of licensing social media platforms in the country.

However, the IPOB leader in a post on June 2 vowed to unleash terror on Nigerian soldiers deployed in the South-east.

He also used derogatory words to describe some government officials.

He said, “It’s not for the living to respond to the dead but given the lack of reasoning prevalent in the #Zoo Nigeria, I wish to assure @GarShehu (Garba Shehu), the Jihadi midget @elrufai (Nasir El-Rufai) & that Fulani lapdog Femi Adesina that any army they send to #Biafraland will die there. None will return alive,” Kanu wrote via his handle on Wednesday.
