Kanu said in his tweet, “It’s not for the living to respond to the dead but given the lack of reasoning prevalent in the #Zoo Nigeria, I wish to assure @GarShehu (Garba Shehu) , the Jihadi midget @elrufai (Nasir El-Rufai) & that Fulani lapdog Femi Adesina that any army they send to #Biafraland will die there. None will return alive”.


The tweet was deleted on Saturday with the social media platform saying it violates its rules. The deletion was done a day after the federal government suspended the operations of Twitter in Nigeria, accusing it of undermining the country’s corporate existence.

Recall it was reported on Friday that the Nigerian Government, through the Minister of Information and Communication, Alhaji Lai Mohammad, announced the suspension of Twitter from operating in the country.

The suspension was indefinite as the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that Nigerians were using Twitter to orchestrate activities that are injurious to the corporate existence of Nigeria.
