2019 elections: Internet shutdown looms, FG imports equipment from Israel says Fayose - ITREALMS

The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose has alleged that the Federal Government of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has concluded plans to shut the telecommunications networks including the Internet for the purposes of manipulating the forthcoming general elections, reports ITREALMS.

Fayose made this allegation through his Twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose, on Tuesday evening.

As said by him, he has it from high authorities that the Federal Government imported jamming equipment from Israel for this purpose.

The telecom infrastructure shutdown, he said, would commence from 5am on Saturday till 5pm on Sunday.

This, ITREALMS gathered, he said, would make it impossible for Nigerians to use the Internet and make phone calls during the elections.

Also, he alleged that the imported equipment from Israel has been installed already and was on trial last Thursday and Friday, when calls were purportedly not going through across networks.

The tweet which has since attracted 1,300 comments and 3,800 retweets had some 5,600 likes as at the time of filing this report.
