Shocking stuff, thanks for sharing. Really strange that this happened under the radar (pun intended) with virtually nil coverage. Although details are sketchy, I think it’s super odd that naij.com was lumped into the same category as pro-Biafra sites. Seems more like a personal vendetta for other reasons (maybe tax evasion, for example), more than anything else.
Sometimes it’s easy to feel that digital platforms are invincible when it comes to government and regulations. I don’t recall such a significant govt-mandated shutdown ever happening in Nigeria. So technically speaking, NCC can unilaterally decide to shut down porn sites or similarly morally devious sites tomorrow?
Stark reminder that, like in virtually other real sector industry in the third world, you need to make friends with government folks if you want to stay afloat.
