The report has it that the meeting was held with the Cyberspace Administration of China(CAC). They have reportedly concluded all the necessary plans to build a firewall for Nigeria’ s cyberspace for security purposes.

According to a report credited to FIJ, the meeting was well attended by big government officials like the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed; the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari, and the host of others.

Cyberspace security which is going to have a firewall will enable the government to be able to censor and monitor people’ s activities on the internet, especially as it regards all these microblogging platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc. This is similar to what is being used in China as well to monitor the activities of the citizens that are termed illegal or nonacceptable to the government.

How does this affect Yahoo boys or other Internet scammers online? Well, for a start, you won’ t be able to use a VPN with such a firewall in place. It means you cannot change your location to the USA or UK as most Nigerian Yahoo boys used to do. And without the change of location on the net, it will be difficult for any client to listen to them as a Nigerian.

Although, as reported, the aim is to checkmate the activities of those spreading fake news and hate speech all the time by using all these microblogging platforms, it will also affect the activities of the fraudsters on the Internet. This is likely going to make the job of the EFCC easier in monitoring and apprehending any suspected fraudsters who may try to use VPN to change their location on the internet.
