Lai Mohammed says monitoring of social media by the military is a normal practice all over the world

Lai Mohammed,the minister for information and culture was recently a guest on Channels Television where he spoke about the Nigerian Army's announcement that it will be monitoring social media for anti-Buhari and anti-military comments.

Lai Mohammed then said this announcement made by the Army is a normal practice all over the world.




He said:

Those saying that the government is going to clamp on the freedom of the press, I think they are just exaggerating the issue. Secondly, the report crediting the military that they will be monitoring the social media to me I think it is something that the military does all over the world – Monitoring speeches, monitoring actions just to balance and to ensure that there is no security threat. It does not mean that the military is going to arrest anybody or prosecute anybody.”
