Nigerians mock Buhari govt for announcing suspension of Twitter via Twitter
“Twitter is actually the platform of choice for the separatist leader who resides outside Nigeria but issues directives for his members to attack the symbols of authority such as policemen, soldiers, correctional centres, electoral offices.
“This has been done willfully and consistently without consequences using always the Twitter platform.”
The Minister had last week disclosed the ban on Twitter in Nigeria.
Mohammed had explained that some Nigerians were using the platform for activities that threaten the unity and existence of Nigeria.
