Twitter’s action came few days after it deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet which it said violated its rules and temporarily restricted his account.

Supporters of the current administration faulted the deletion of the president’s tweet which they claimed was “harmless”, charging Twitter to look into Kanu’s activities on its platform.

The Nigerian government announced an indefinite suspension of Twitter’s operations in the country on Friday.
