ECOWAS Court to rule on Twitter ban in Nigeria

Twitter

The Court of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has scheduled July 9, 2021, to consolidate suits against the Nigerian Government on the suspension of the microblogging platform, Twitter, in the country.

The date was announced on Tuesday during a virtual sitting.

In June, the Federal Government suspended the operation of the social media site, over alleged contents threatening the corporate existence of the country.

Two major applications were brought before the court, challenging the FG on violating the rights of Twitter users in Nigeria.

One was the application brought by the Registered Trustees of the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project against the Federal Government marked ECW/CCJ/APP/23/21.

The other was the application brought by the Media Rights Agenda and eight others against the Federal Government on the same issue marked ECW/CCJ/APP/29/21.

Abdullahi Abubakar, a lawyer representing the Federal Government during the sitting, prayed for the leave of the court to consolidate the hearing of the applications.
