Twitter suspended in Nigeria ‘indefinitely’


Micro-blogging site Twitter has been suspended indefinitely from operating in Nigeria, the government has announced.

The website is popular with journalists, other media figures and civic groups – and was a key source of information during the #EndSARS protests.

A statement from the Nigerian government cited the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

The national broadcasting regulator, NBC, has also been told to start “the process of licensing all OTT [internet streaming services] and social media operations in Nigeria,” the statement adds.
