BREAKING: Twitter expresses ‘deep concern’ over suspension in Nigeria

Published

Twitter has expressed “deep concern” over the federal government’s decision to suspend its operations in Nigeria.

Sarah Hart, Twitter’s senior policy communications manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa, told TheCable the company is investigating the development.

We reported how the government suspended Twitter’s operations indefinitely, after accusing the micro-blogging site of “undermining Nigeria’s existence.”

In a statement on Friday, Lai Mohammed, minister of information, said the government was forced to act because of “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”.

However, as of the time of this report, the platform is still active within Nigeria.

In an email response to TheCable’s enquiry, Hart said: “The announcement made by the Nigerian Government that they have suspended Twitter’s operations in Nigeria is deeply concerning.

“We’re investigating and will provide updates when we know more.”
