Economic Community of West African States’ Court has declared “unlawful” the suspension of Twitter by the Federal Government.
The court also ordered the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), “never to repeat it again”.
This followed a suit by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project and 176 concerned Nigerians, according to SERAP’s Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced the suspension of Twitter in Nigeria following the deletion of Buhari’s tweet.
