NEWS Separatists used Twitter to burn police stations, INEC offices in Nigeria – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday, claimed that separatist campaigners use Twitter to issue directives to their followers in Nigeria to attack security forces as well as burn police stations and offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).


Mohammed, who spoke at the Meeting of Information Managers of APC Government in Lagos on Thursday, also said that the Federal Government suspended the operations of Twitter in Nigeria because of the threat posed by the gross abuse of the platform to the nation’s peace and unity.

Mohammed said, “Social media is a double-edged sword, providing opportunities and challenges perhaps in equal measure.


“For the information and communication manager, the so-called new media provides the ultimate test. As you all know, we recently had to suspend the operations of Twitter in Nigeria because of the threat posed by the gross abuse of the platform to the nation’s peace and unity.

“Twitter is the platform of choice for separatist campaigners, especially those of them residing outside the country, who use it to issue directives to their followers in Nigeria to attack our security forces as well as to burn police stations and INEC offices.”

DAILY POST recalls that the Federal Government suspended the operation of Twitter in Nigeria, accusing the platform of allowing contents capable of threatening the corporate existence of the country.


Despite the ban, some Nigerians have continued to access the medium via the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN)

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday appointed a team to engage with Twitter over the suspension of its operations in the country.

Are we still on this Twitter issue?
Talk of giving a dog a bad name just to hang it.
Uncle Lai should move on and stop acting like a scorned love peddler.

great let's blame Twitter for all Nigeria's problems since 1960.. Twitter caused the civil war and caused all military coups and Twitter stole all our collective wealth and is the reason why we are suddenly a laughing stock in Africa. Twitter helped Fulani herdsmen bring this nation to its knees and the brink of war .. Twitter robbed me in traffic last night and Twitter kidnapped the school children and raped women and girls, murdered men, women and children, plundered homes and ... and yes Twitter is such a devil... Twitter caused 9/11 and made Islamic militants the terrors that they are ... twitter made gumi the spokesman who justifies the killing and maiming of children and tells us to give them more money. ..as they are freedom fighters. Twitter is the reason Nnamdi Kanu is such a pain in the butt and Igboho suddenly relevant.. in fact, Twitter is to blame once u cant has an erection.... Twitter is the reason why my Galant Nigerian military now has to rely on ISWAP to terminate shekau .. Twitter is the reason why we suddenly don't value human life in Nigeria .. Twitter is the reason why Twitter is the reason why Fulani herdsmen suddenly feel that my ancestral land is theirs to plunder and their birthright. Twitter is the reason why I can't even dream of travelling to Kaduna by road anymore ..Twitter is the reason why politicians are so greedy and the judiciary is so unreliable.. Twitter is the reason why the police are ow the number one enemy of the masses and Twitter.. Twitter caused the leakage on the national assembly roof and Twitter made us borrow so much with nothing to show for it. Yes, Twitter caused the endsars riot and hired thugs to beat up protestors and plundered homes and businesses. Twitter killed innocent protesters and arrested them too.. Twitter is the reason why suddenly my beloved country is now so divided along ethnic and religious lines. . oh twitter is such a devil .. once we destroy Twitter all our problems will be solved.. let's join hands together and ensure we destroy this evil Twitter.
