After Twitter, Facebook removed President Buhari’s controversial ‘civil war’ post


After Twitter, Facebook, another online media platform, has removed a questionable articulation posted by means of President Muhammadu Buhari’s true page.

The President on Tuesday taken steps to treat insurrectionists and those assaulting offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) like Nigerian troopers treated the dissidents during the common conflict. Mr Buhari, a resigned general battled during the conflict which killed more than 1,000,000 people.

However, on Friday, Facebook, following reports from many Nigerian users, removed the same post from its platform.

“In line with our global policies, we’ve removed a post from President Buhari’s Facebook page for violating our Community Standards against inciting violence. We remove any content, from individuals or organisations that violates our policies on Facebook,” Facebook stated.

Although the post is no longer available on Mr Buhari’s timeline, it is  on other Facebook accounts including his aide’s, Femi Adesina.

It is, however, unclear if the Nigerian government would suspend the operations of Facebook as it did to Twitter earlier today for bringing down the same statement
