President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to crush Ipob.
Last month he tweeted about the security issues in south-east Nigeria and said “those misbehaving today” would be dealt with in “the language they will understand”.
The tweet was removed by Twitter for violating its rules after Mr Buhari faced backlash, leading to a suspension of the micro-blogging site in Nigeria.
The president, during a recent TV interview, also referred to Ipob as a “dot in a circle” that can easily be crushed.
He was criticised by many Igbo leaders who felt he was referring to people of the Igbo ethnic group and not just Ipob.
