The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, on Thursday asked Google to block terrorists organisations from YouTube, IgbereTV reports
He made the request when a team from Google visited him in Abuja.
“We want Google to look into how to tackle the use of private and unlisted YouTube channels and YouTube livestreams by proscribed groups and terrorist organizations,” the Minister said, according to a statement signed by his spokesperson, Segun Adeyemi.
“Channels and emails containing names of proscribed groups and their affiliates should not be allowed on Google platforms,” he said.
Mohammed, who noted that Google is a platform of choice for IPOB, a proscribed terrorist group, implored the tech giant to deny IPOB the use of its platform for its acts of violence and destabilization
