Why We Removed IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s Account — Facebook

Social networking giant, Facebook, Thursday, said it “removed” the account of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu for “repeatedly” violating it rules against hate speech.

A spokesman for the tech company in Lagos on Thursday said in a statement, that Facebook is a platform to give people voice and to feel safe and not for inciting violent acts.

The statement signed by Dapo Akintoye said “We believe in giving people a voice, but we also want everyone using Facebook to feel safe. It’s why we have Community Standards, which set out what is and isn’t allowed on Facebook, and we remove anything that violates them,” the statement reads.

“In line with our rules, we removed Nnamdi Kanu’s page for repeatedly posting content that breaks those Community Standards, including content that violated our rules on coordinating harm and hate speech.”
