  • The Nigerian government says it has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in the country.
  • This comes after Twitter deleted a controversial post by President Muhammadu Buhari referencing the country’s civil war, and threatening to treat those attacking government buildings “with the language they understand”.
  • “Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he wrote on Tuesday.
  • In a statement issued on Friday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension of Twitter, citing the alleged use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
