The Minister of information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Tuesday disclosed that Twitter rejected its demand to delete the account of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
The minister disclosed this on “Politics Nationwide,’’ a Radio Nigeria call-in programme.
Mohammed further stated that it wrong to believe that the social media platform was suspended in the country because President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement was deleted.
He accused Twitter of offering its platform to promote agenda that are capable of damaging the unity of Nigeria.
“Twitter has become a platform of choice for a particular separatist promoter.
“The promoter consistently used the platform to direct his loyalists to kill Nigerian soldiers and policemen, run-down INEC offices and destroy all symbols of Nigeria’s sovereignty.
“Every attempt to persuade Twitter to deny its platform to this separatist leader was not taken serious,’’ he said
