The Nigerian government says it has "indefinitely suspended" Twitter's operations in the country, the Ministry of Information and Culture announced in a statement on Friday.

"The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria," it read.

The statement, which was posted on the ministry's official Twitter handle on Friday evening, accused the American social media company of allowing its platform to be used "for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria's corporate existence."

The suspension comes two days after Twitter deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that was widely perceived as offensive.

In that tweet on Tuesday, the Nigerian leader threatened to deal with people in the country's southeast, who he blames for the recurring attacks on public infrastructure in the region.

"Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand," Buhari wrote in the now-deleted tweet, referring to the brutal two-year Nigeria-Biafra war, which killed an estimated one to three million people, mostly from the Igbo tribe in the eastern part of the country between 1967-1970.

The tweet was deleted Wednesday after many Nigerians flagged it to Twitter.

Information Minister Lai Mohammed criticized Twitter's action and accused the social media giant of "double standards."

Buhari keep shooting himself in the foot. Is better to ignore somethings but always proving stubborn will only hurt you. Now the world will hear about ipob, like CNN said, 1 - 3 million Igbos were killed. Many people that don't know about it before will know it now. Many people will be sympathetic to Ipob because of this. One funny thing about life is that when you think you are doing people, you are actually doing yourself. Buhari is always promoting nnamdi kanu and Biafra. What an irony.

This is how we got here in the first place..... restraint is a must without it is tuggish recklessness resulting in negative imaging and quicksand effect at attempts to control damage.....
Due process is sacrosanct in a democracy....... executive should not bee seen to operate with fiat.....we are not in a junta regime

Is twitter your problem in the country? Twitter leaving Nigeria, how will that stop kidnapping, the division among the various regions in the country,herdsmen attacking farmers,poor management of the country's economy and resources, unemployment and many other issues drawnin the nation currently.Those days in sportbet thread,I used to think that you were a wise sombori o. I'm surprised to see you supporting the evil called buhari government. Although I'm sure its not buhari,its actually the cabals using the likes of Lai,Garba,Adesina to give out orders. Since when bubu no dey his wife book lunch, na em I blive one minute silence wen ECOWAS do for one dead president, sometime ago.. Make una stop this game of PDP and APC.. Make Nigeria great again,if the leaders can not handle it,then they should let capable hands do it.. Its easy,only say northern cabals knows what they are doing... They want to be the only region in government, but it can never happen.

Before you start saying rubbish over what I commented. Note that I'm not Igbo . I am a Nigerian and if your pay masters can not lead the nation, let them hand over to capable hands. Before you go out this morning from your house. Put your two hands on your head,and pray for common sense.. Cux its only a senseless person, that won't see wrong in what is going on in the country right now. And its only a senseless person that will carry PDP or APC on his head. Have a nice day!

Ha! On top wetin? E don red. Are there still any sane Yoruba supporting this government? Are there still any sane Yoruba giving legitimacy to the incompetency of this government?

Why do I feel like something sinister is about to take place. News that they don't want it to get out of this country?

If they can do it in the East, they will do to us in the West.

Why are you ipobs always acting like cowards? Why is it always so hard for you to be proud of who you are and your ipobian identity? Are you so ashamed of ipobs that you are so desperate not to call yourself ipob even though you are and you love everything they stand for?

How do you even love terrorists, killers, murderers arsonists and evil elements?

You ipobs are a different and weird breed..
