The activities of Nigerians on the social media are now being monitored for hate speech, anti-government and anti-security information by the military.
 
Director of Defence Information, Major-General John Enenche, said that it became necessary in the light of troubling activities and misinformation, capable of jeopardizing the unity of the country.
 
According to him, social media has always been a challenge all over the world and for the military, it is no different.

Meanwhile, agitation for restructuring appears to be gathering steam for national discuss as labour activists, royal fathers and opinion leaders converged on Abuja to chat a way forward for national unity.
 
The national colloquium put together by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), attended by prominent Nigerians like the Sultan of Sokoto became rowdy when the former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshomhole described advocates of restructuring, as politicians who were defeated in the 2015 general elections.
