Human Rights lawyer and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, says the Federal Government erred in suspending Twitter operations in the country. 

According to Falana, in a constitutional democracy, the government is not permitted to resort to self-help, which implies that the government is supposed to have “sued Twitter if the organization refuses to respond positively to the concerns of the government”.

According to the senior lawyer who was a guest on the Wednesday edition of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, the Federal Government should either have sued Twitter in the United States of America or in Ghana where the microblogging service provider has its African headquarters.

More details shortly.
