Amnesty International condemns the Nigerian government’s suspension of Twitter operations in Nigeria— a social media widely used by Nigerians to exercise their human rights, including their rights to freedom of expression and access to information.

Amnesty International Nigeria in a strong reaction to the Friday Federal Government’s ban on the social media grant, called on the Nigerian authorities to immediately reverse the unlawful suspension and other plans to gag the media, repress the civic space, and undermine Nigerians’ human rights.

It says the action is clearly inconsistent and incompatible with Nigeria’s international obligations including under the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
