The Federal Government has finally suspended, indefinitely, the operations of microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria.
This was announced on Friday by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, according to a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Segun Adeyemi.
Twitter was suspended in Nigeria because they deleted a genocidal post by the Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Tuesday. The said post reads:
“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.”
When the Twitter suspension announcement was made by the FG, we thought they were joking as usually, but we guessed it wrong. They said it, they did it. Right now, you can’t access Twitter in Nigeria without a VPN.
However, NOTHING SPOIL!
