Nigeria react to military plans to monitor social media for anti-govt activities.

Today, Director of Defence Information, Major-General John Enenche, said that the activities of Nigerians on social media is now being monitored for hate speech, anti-government and anti-security information, by the military.

Nigerians on social media aren't happy with the news and they've been reacting to it mostly saying its an attempt to gag citizens' expression of their feelings through the use of social media.

No amount of intimidation by Nigerian Army can gag citizens' expression of their feelings through the social media.

Fellow . In light of  announcement, I hereby retire from  twitter with immediate effect & alacrity Thanks

The Nigerian army has left its duty of defending citizens, it is now gagging freedom of speech. Shame on the Nigerian army

Can someone remind the Nigerian Army that Social Media isn't the reason Nigeria is in a mess? Gagging Nigerians is not why we have the Army! https://twitter.com/UgAtoba/status/900104534143447041
