Did Government shut Nairaland Down?

posted in: News | 18

Nairaland, our parent website has been down and offline since Yesterday. If not that i don’t pray for what humans can solve, i would have asked us to pray for it because it remains our online home for news and entertainment.

Seun Osewa the owner isn’t saying anything since yesterday except that “I am Sorry” and “It might be worse that you think”.

We the Nairalanders deserve to know what is going on. He has thousands of followers both on twitter and Facebook and all of them are eager to know what is happening.

Rumour has it that it was shut down by the Government for promoting tribal discrimination and inciting hatred among Nigerians.
Another said it was because of its campaign against Nigerian Leadership.

For the record, i don’t believe both, i think it is related to host server.

If anybody has information, let us know.

Nairalanders remains our beloved forum.

    The government did not bring down NairaLand or any other thing sinister like that in my opinion. From what I can tell, their database has crashed and it generally takes a long time to rebuild all the data. This is obviously a flaw in their operation and something that needs to be addressed going forward.
