President Muhammadu Buhari has been reported to the international community over a threat tweet to the south-east.
The report was made by Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council who hailed Twitter for removing the inciting tweet.
Ohanaeze termed the tweet “genocidal and offensive tweet.”
The President had in a statement warned that those who want to destroy his government will receive the shock of their lives as they will be treated in a language they will understand.
According to him, “Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.”
A tweet from him read: “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
Reacting, Ohanaeze Youths said the President had prepared the ground for another ‘genocidal’ attack on Ndigbo by security forces.
The group spoke through its President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, saying that the President had pushed Ndigbo to the walls.
“We write to alert the international community on another planned genocidal action against Ndigbo. This is sadly coming few days after Ndigbo held a memorial in honour of over 5 million lives wasted, including children, during the civil war.
“While we salute Twitter for deleting the tweet, we want to say that Buhari’s account should be blocked, just like that of Trump. Other sanctions should also be placed on Buhari Government by the international community.
“We are more concerned that this is coming from the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
