A group has called on the Nigerian government to permanently ban Facebook in the country, citing the platform’s suppression of free speech and limited user base.
Despite making millions of dollars from Nigeria, the organization claims that Facebook intends to tell Nigerians how to speak and write.
A video released on social media shows some young boys carrying banners with various messages in front of the Federal Ministry of Justice in Abuja, according to SaharaReporters. The demonstrators were at the Ministry to submit petitions against Facebook, according to a speaker in the background of the video.
He believes Facebook should be banned, stating that they are unable to police their users’ speech.
Following the removal of a controversial message made by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian government stopped Twitter indefinitely.
