Nigeria's great demand to Facebook and other social networks

Nigeria’s great demand to Facebook and other social networks

Nigerian authorities asked Facebook and other platforms to reduce hate speech on their sites, Information Minister Lai Mohammed said on Tuesday.

The minister’s comments came after meeting with Facebook’s team in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.

According to Mr Mohamed, Facebook had done nothing to curtail the activities of separatist group Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on their platform despite several complaints.

Nigeria faces secessionist unrest, insecurity, banditry, kidnappings, a weak currency amid double-digit inflation and slow growth.
