President Buhari’s wife Aisha has deactivated her Twitter account after her husband announced the suspension of the social media App. in Nigeria on Friday evening.

I will be deactivating my Twitter account for now. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Buhari’s wife Aisha wrote before deactivating her account.

The #TwitterBan came two days after the social media giant deleted a tweet from President Muhammadu Buhari’s account for violating its rules.

Twitter deleted a remark on the president’s account after he referred to the country’s civil war in a warning about the recent unrest in the southeast.

Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” the president had posted on Twitter.

The Federal Government has suspended, indefinitely, the operations of the microblogging and social networking service, Twitter, in Nigeria,” ministry of information and culture spokesman Segun Adeyemi said in a statement on Friday.

Twitter said that the move was “deeply concerning“.

We’re investigating and will provide updates when we know more,” the company said in a statement.
