Nigerian celebrities have taken to the Twitter to slam the Nigerian government over the suspension of Twitter in the country.
The Nigerian government on Friday, June 4, 2021, suspended the operations of Twitter in the country.
However, after the news broke, Nigerians including some celebrities took to the platform to rebuke the government over their ‘drastic’ decision.
Below are some of their reactions:
@BankyW: “They can’t stop kidnapping, armed robbery, and terrorism… the country is as unsafe as ever… yet they can seize passports and block bank accounts of peaceful protesters. They ban cryptocurrency. They ban Twitter. Completely out of touch with the plight of young people.”
