The social media bill since it was introduced has stirred reactions from Nigerians online.
The protesters demanded the withdrawal of the bills on hate speech and internet manipulations.
Keyamo had on his Twitter page mocked those opposing the social media bill.
He urged those opposing the social media bill to also apologize to those they blocked on their social media pages.
He wrote: “The real agitation should be for Parliament, in line with S.36(12) of the 1999 Constitution, to clearly define the TYPES of false and insensitive posts that would attract penal consequences, so that govt doesn’t abuse it. But to leave everyone to just post ANYTHING is unacceptable
