President Buhari had threatened on his Twitter handle to deal with people who are destroying INEC facilities in the South East the way federal forces dealt with Biafrans during the Civil War.
By then, the most recent karate session against free speech by His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the Twitter Empire in Africa in General and Nigeria in Particular (I hope Idi Amin Dada would not be livid in his grave for piracy of his intellectual property!), had not begun.
The tweet, which was posted on Tuesday, read in part: “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.”

One of the most wicked and despicable lies that President Muhammadu Buhari has ever told is that the Nigerian Army was “soft” on the Biafrans and “restrained” during the civil war, implying that our soldiers did not indulge in genocide and mass murder.
In a message titled: “I am a Nigerian,” Babangida said the ongoing hate speeches in the country was what led to the country’s Civil War between 1967 and 1970
If the security agencies fail to act, particularly on the matter of the coalition of Northern youths promoting Igbo hatred, the Federal Government would have committed a grievous sin, likely to be interpreted as aiding and abetting
IPOB said this arises from their roles in the 30-month Nigeria Civil War in which many Igbo people were killed
Since soldiers like their officers, especially if they fear him or have respect for him, they give him one name or the other to depict his gallantry
