Twitter has deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet wherein he threatened to treat Nigerians “misbehaving” in “the language they understand”.
In the tweet shared on Tuesday, Buhari spoke about the civil war experience and threatened to deal with those “bent on destroying” Nigeria through “insurrection.”
“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he had said.
Following the development, Nigerians on social media took to Twitter to drag the President for making such threats towards a particular tribe.
While some slammed him for pleading with Fulani herdsmen and bandits who have killed and are still killing innocent Nigerians, others slammed him for threatening the South East with another civil war that killed almost 3 million Igbos.
Twitter deleted the message on Wednesday, following widespread condemnation of the tweet.
The platform said the post violated its rules.
It is not immediately clear if the platform will take further action against the president.
