Some of the domains cut across .com, .net, .info and .org.

In a leaked letter to one of its licensees sighted by ITRealms, NCC directed the operator to restrict access to several pro-Igbo and Biafra identified websites for alleged threat to national security.

The letter is dated October 20, and acknowledged four days later. It is entitled “Re: Request to Prevent the Commission of an Offence Under Section 146 of the Nigerian Communications Act, 2003”, and referenced an earlier letter dated 27 September 27, 2017 on the subject matter.
