Popular Civil Society Organization, Concerned Nigerians Group, CNG has come out to say that it’ll sue telecommunication companies for disconnecting Nigerians from Twitter.

This was recently revealed in a recent statement signed by the Convener, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to the group, several Nigerian businesses have suffered losses running into billions of Naira after the ban was placed, and these losses cannot be allowed to continue.

He added that the constitution guarantees the privacy of citizens, their homes, correspondence, telephone conversations and telegraphic communications, and Twitter is not excluded.

It read, “At @ConcernedNIG, we will be suing the telecom companies for disconnecting Twitter in the country without a valid court order immediately the courts resumes because this is a clear breach of SC 37 CFRN.”

“The constitution guarantees the privacy of citizens, their homes, correspondence, telephone conversations and telegraphic communications which Twitter is inclusive. These guaranteed rights cannot be taken away by executive fiat.”

“The ban on Twitter is not only unconstitutional but null and void because it has no legal backing. And as such, the telecommunication companies who implemented the illegal ban blindly without a valid court order must be made to pay for the damages suffered by Nigerians.”

“Many businesses who rely on Twitter for patronage have suffered great loss and as such this and many other reasons will serve as locus.”
