Facebook deletes Nigerian president's post about civil war

Monday 7 June 2021 | 11:54 CET | News
Facebook says it has deleted a controversial statement posted on President Muhammadu Buhari's official page that he would deal with those attacking Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) facilities as Nigerian soldiers had dealt with rebels during the civil war. Facebook said the deletion is in line with its global policies, as the post violated its community standards against inciting violence.
