In the tweet shared on Tuesday, Buhari spoke about the civil war experience and threatened to deal with those “bent on destroying” Nigeria through “insurrection.” “Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he had said.


But Twitter deleted the message on Wednesday, following widespread condemnation of the tweet. The platform said the message violated its rules.
