The ban of Twitter in Nigeria comes just days after the federal government criticised the social media giant for deleting a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that warned of strong actions against secessionists.

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, on Wednesday, June 2, accused the microblogging site of bias on issues concerning Nigeria’s domestic affairs.

He said Twitter’s role is suspicious and Nigeria would not be fooled. Mohammed argued that the president has the right to express his idea on the current security challenges in the country.

In another report, a former US president, Donald Trump, has been suspended from Facebook until at least January 7, 2023. CNN reported that Facebook made the announcement on Friday, June 4.

The latest announcement implies that Trump will be off the social media site for two years, taking into consideration when he was initially suspended.

Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice president of global affairs, explained that at the end of the duration, the company would assess the circumstances to see if the former president should be allowed back on the site.
