Following the ban on Twitter by the Federal Government of Nigeria, Twitter on Saturday evening reportedly removed the Endsars Emoji and also deleted a tweet made by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).

This development occurred about twenty-four hours after the Nigerian Government banned the social network’s operation in the country and before the ban, the Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed, had earlier accused the micro-blogging site of double standard by allowing separatists propagate their activities using its platform.

Nnamdi Kanu, in the now deleted tweet, had threatened that no Army sent to the South-East will return back alive.

The tweet read “It’s not for the living to respond to the dead but given the lack of reasoning prevalent in the Nigeria, I wish to assure @GarShehu, the Jihadi midget @elrufai & that Fulani lapdog Femi Adesina that any army they send to #Biafraland will die there. None will return alive,” the secessionist had tweeted on Wednesday.

Explaining why it was deleted, Twitter said the tweet goes against its rules, adding that, This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules.”

 Meanwhile, Twitter has also deleted the #EndSARS emoji it made in solidarity of the historic global demonstrations seeking police extensive reforms last year October.
