Nigeria announced on Friday the suspension of Twitter operations in the country “indefinitely”.

The Nigerian Ministry of Information, in a statement, said the ban was due to the “continuous use of the platform for activities that could undermine the existence of Nigeria’s unity.

” Twitter had deleted a tweet by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari a few days ago, but the ministry did not mention this incident in its statement.

Twitter said it removed Bukhari’s tweet because it violated the site’s rules against offensive behaviour.

The American tech giant also suspended his account for 12 hours, following a tweet in which the country’s President Muhammadu Buhari threatened to “suppress separatists.

” The Minister of Information stated that Twitter had not removed the “violent tweets” of the separatist movement’s leader.

Nigerian separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu sought to revive a 1960s bid to create the independent state of Biafra, an uprising that sparked a civil war in which more than a million people died
