Unidentified Group Demands Facebook Ban

A group of people has demanded that Facebook should also be banned after Twitter was banned. The group submitted their petitions to the Ministries of Justice, Information, and Culture demanding that Facebook should be banned in Nigeria.

The people who advocated for the ban on Facebook gave some reasons why the social media should be banned. On one of the cardboard papers displayed during their protest, there was writing on it stating the reason why the social media should be banned. 

It says, “Stop Facebook before Facebook stops our democracy.” Another one stated, “Mark Zuckerberg, no one elected you to any office in Nigeria” 

This petition came one month after Twitter was banned in Nigeria by the president Muhammadu Buhari's regime. 

Twitter was banned on 5 June 2021 after a tweet on president Muhammadu Buhari's page that violated its policy was deleted. Since after the tweet was deleted, the government decided to suspend Twitter in Nigeria, many people, organizations that promote their contents on Twitter have been affected.

However, the government of Nigeria is trying to resolve the issue with the social media, but for now, nobody knows when the social media will be allowed back in Nigeria.
