-Nigeria says it has banned twitter indefinitely.
Actor John Dumelo has reacted to the decision by the federal government of Nigeria to ban twitter in the country.
Yesterday 4th June 2021, Nigeria through its Communication minister stated Twitter has been banned in the country indefinitely.
This announcement was met with series of disagreements online as many Nigerian youth took to other social media platforms to blast the administration of Muhammad’s Buhari over what many describes as a reckless decision.
Nigeria reportedly is banning based on a tweet President Buhari Made which was deleted by twitter for going against their community standard.
Actor Dumelo who also is a Politician and an entrepreneur took to his twitter handle to say, the move by Nigeria to ban twitter is an attempt to stifle free speech.
The Attorney General Of Nigeria today reveals that it’s now illegal for anyone to use twitter in Nigeria and whoever will be caught using the platform will be arrested and prosecuted.
