The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, revealed this in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.
Shehu, who was reacting to the deletion of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweets from the microblogging site, Twitter.
He alleged that IPOB has been killing policemen and setting government property on fire.
He said the Buhari administration will continue to safeguard all citizens against social media’s disruptive and divisive influences.
“IPOB is proscribed under Nigerian law. Its members murder innocent Nigerians.
“They kill policemen and set government property on fire. Now, they have amassed a substantial stockpile of weapons and bombs across the country.”
“Twitter does not seem to appreciate the national trauma of our country’s civil war. This government shall not allow a recurrence of that tragedy,” he alleged.
