The Federal Government has directed social media interactive platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and TikTok to remove, disable or block access to any non-consensual content, which parades partial or full nudity, sexual acts, deep fake or revenge porn within 24 hours of users posting.

The order was contained in the Code of Practice for Interactive Computer Service Platforms/Internet Intermediaries (online platforms) recently released by the National Information Technology Development Agency 

“A platform must acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and take down the content within 24 hours.” it added

The platforms have also been directed to exercise due diligence to ensure that no unlawful content is uploaded to their platform.

The Code of Practice was developed by NITDA alongside the Nigerian Communications Commission and the National Broadcasting Commission, with input from platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Google, and Tik Tok.

Other conditions include registering with the Corporate Affairs Commission as a legal entity, complying with tax obligations, abiding by regulatory and legal demands, and providing information about users on-demand, among others.
