LAGOS – Tuesday 08 June 8, 2021: Comedian and filmmaker, Bright Okpocha a.k.a Basketmouth has said the federal government will soon find excuses to also ban Facebook and Instagram following the suspension of Twitter’s operations in Nigeria.
The outspoken entertainer on Sunday said the ongoing move to control social media will not end with the suspension of Twitter.
“Do you know that our leaders are the most straightforward in the world? They’ve been dropping hints about what’s happening now before but we didn’t pay attention then,” he said in a video on his Instagram page.
“This whole thing with not end with the ban on Twitter. Soon, they would claim that IPOB is using Instagram for their meeting and the next thing you’ll hear is that it has been banned.
“Then the government would shift attention to Facebook that it’s what bandits use to track people’s identities before kidnapping them and thereafter also ban it.
“At that point, they would have banned everything. Twitter is just the first. They’ll soon find excuses to also ban the other social media platforms including TikTok. Their plan is to ban everything so that we won’t be able to communicate with the outside world again.”
