The president had threatened to treat members of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB in the language they understand.

Some of the conditions include legal registration of operations, taxation, and managing prohibited publications in line with Nigerian laws.

While announcing the lifting of the ban, the government noted that Twitter has agreed to meet the set out conditions.

The platform will work with the federal government and the broader industry to develop a Code of Conduct in line with global best practices, applicable in almost all developed countries.
