What really brought about the ban on Twitter is because the President of Nigeria, Mr Buhari made a Genocidal Tweet against the Igbo’s of South Easterners and majority of the South South Nigeria, the written and video tweet was removed by Twitter for Policy Violations, which is a threat to People’s exitance and also right to live, and also for planning Physical and emotional harm against an Ethnicity in Nigeria, the move made by Twitter did not go down well with Mr President as he ordered the Minister of Information and the NCC to place an Indefinite Ban on Twitter, Now it’s a law, anyone caught with twitter app or still using twitter will be arrested.
