THE National Security Adviser, Maj . Gen . Babagana Monguno ( retd.) , has said the social media was used to disseminate subversive content to incite violence during the #EndSARS protests , which rocked the country .

Monguno, who spoke at the multi -stakeholders ’ workshop for the validation of the draft National Cybersecurity Policy and Strategy 2020, organised by his office in Abuja on Wednesday, also attributed the rising cases of terrorism , fake news, and other criminal activities to the cyberspace .

The NSA stated , “ We are witnesses to the use of social media to disseminate subversive content to incite violence and heightened tension, causing unrest and sparking widespread looting and destruction across the country. ”

He , however , noted that the sophistication of cyberspace comes with inherent challenges, saying “ the threats posed by cyber- terrorists , and the use of the Internet had brought social media circulation of hate speech and seditious messages; it is almost impossible to overstate the challenges. ”

In his remarks, the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, attributed the rising cases of terrorism , fake news, and other criminal activities to the cyberspace.

Olonisakin, who was represented by Air vice Marshal Charles Oghonwen, the Chief of Defence Policy and Plans at the Defence Headquarters, added that cyberspace was being used to facilitate various terrorist activities such as recruitment , training , propaganda, intelligence gathering and fundraising.
