Nigeria seeks to block YouTube accounts of banned groups


Nigeria has asked Google to block banned groups in the country from broadcasting on YouTube channels, Information Minister Lai Mohammed has said. He said the YouTube channels were used to spread hate and disinformation against the country. "Channels and emails containing names of proscribed groups and their affiliates should not be allowed on Google platforms,'' Mr Mohammed said after hosting Google executives in Abuja on Thursday. He said the government and Google "shared the same concern on the responsible use of social media", according to a statement from the ministry. Millions of people in Africa's most populous nation use platforms like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok.
