A yet-to-be-identified group has demanded that Facebook be banned in Nigeria permanently.
The group filed a case with Nigeria’s Ministry of Justice in Abuja, the country’s Federal Capital Territory.
According to the group’s head, who posted a video on his Facebook page, the request for Facebook’s ban is based on the company’s censoring of posts, restriction of free speech, and limitation of followership, among other things.
The organization announced that it would go to the Ministry of Information to substantiate the case and ensure that Facebook is permanently banned in Nigeria.
The group’s head claimed that Facebook is a threat to Nigeria’s democracy and that it should not be permitted to operate in the country.
