According to our previous reports, the Nigerian communication authorities had suspended Twitter in the country in June after the social media platform deleted a tweet from President Buhari.

Twitter claimed that the tweet was against its term and conditions.

However, human rights organizations, including the international community, faulted Nigeria for limiting human rights and press freddom.

However, the reports indicate that a section of Nigerian continued to use the platform even after the ban.

However, KDRTV learned that no arrests or fines had been imposed on Nigerians who downplayed the ban.

On the other hand, former US President Donald Trump hailed the Nigerian government to ban Twitter, adding that Facebook and Twitter should be banned worldwide.

Mr. Trump had had issues with the two tech companies before promoting his stance against them.
