Former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garba has described Twitter as an online machine for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Garba made the remark while commending the Nigerian Government for suspending the activities of Twitter in Nigeria.
Garba said Twitter was in support of IPOB’s activities in a new interview. He stated that Twitter supports IPOB more than it does to the Nigerian government. He said:
“Twitter is behind them. I think Twitter is like a kind of IPOB online machine because what they do more is supporting IPOB much more than the government. Everyone knows that IPOB is anti-Nigeria, their target is to destroy Nigeria”.
Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed had announced the ban on Twitter.
He had explained that the microblogging site was suspended because Nigerians were using the platform for activities that were against the country’s unity.
