House of Representatives to investigate suspension of Twitter

The leadership of the House of Representatives has directed relevant committees to immediately commence an investigation on the suspension of twitter operations in Nigeria.

The Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila said the investigation is to determine the circumstances of the decision by the federal government to suspend Twitter and the legal authority for the ban.

The committees are to invite the minister of information and culture Lai Mohammed to brief the house on the objectives, intent and duration of the suspension.

House committees on Justice, information and culture, communications and the committee on national security and intelligence are those mandated to conduct the investigation and report back in ten days.
