The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has hailed Twitter for deleting a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Newspot recalls the micro-blogging site deleted President Buhari’s tweet wherein he spoke about the civil war experience.

The President in a tweet on Tuesday threatened to deal with those bent on destroying Nigeria through insurrection.

In a post on Twitter, the president wrote, “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 through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”

However, the social media platform deleted the message on Wednesday, following widespread condemnation of the tweet.

According to a statement, Twitter said the post violated its rules, hence the need to delete the post.

Reacting in a post on Twitter, Nnamdi Kanu warned that Nigerian leaders would account to the international community for their crimes to Biafra.

He wrote: “Thank you, @Twitter for DELETING the hate-filled tweet by the account fronting as
@MBuhari.

“What you did proves that the rulers of Nigeria who feel they’re not accountable to #Biafrans for their crimes will ultimately account to the international community. #ThisIsNot1967.”
