KADUNA, Nigeria — Nigerian National Security Adviser Col. Sambo Dasuki said the federal government is planning to introduce a law that will ban and block all porn websites in the country.

He made the announcement at the closing ceremony of a three-day workshop on the use of social media, organized on behalf of Islamic preachers, Imams and youths in Kaduna on Sunday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the workshop, which was organized by the national body of Izalatil Bid’a Wa’iqamatis Sunna (JIBWIS), aimed at correcting anomalies in the use of social media.

Dasuki, who was represented by the minister of special duties Alhaji Kabiru Turaki, said, “[The] government is planning to ban and block websites that inculcate negative attitudes in our children, but we need a law to support such move.

"Because without a law, people can go to court and claim infringement on their rights.”
