Nigeria’s advertising regulator is suing Meta – which owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp – as well its local affiliate for 30bn naira (about $70m). It says both Meta and its Lagos-based agent AT3 Resources should pay up because they failed to get averts on the social media platforms vetted by government before publishing. The BBC reports that Meta and AT3 Resources Limited have yet to comment on the lawsuit filed by the Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria.
