Rights group challenges Nigeria's move to monitor WhatsApp messages

President Muhammadu Buhari

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has filed a lawsuit against President Muhammadu Buhari.

The group is asking the court to “declare illegal and unconstitutional the plan by the administration to track, intercept and monitor WhatsApp messages, phone calls, and text messages of Nigerians and other people.

The group says such action severely threatens and violates the right to the preservation of privacy.
