- git rebase -i
- In you editor now change ‘pick’ to ‘reword’ on the line for the incorrect commit.
- Once you have done, save and close.

- git push –force
This method will rewrite the history of your repository. If someone pulled/fetched from the repo between the commit with the wrong message and when you correct it, he/she could have some issues. It would be useful to communicate to anyone involved about your action.
