ARCON Sues Facebook For Violating Nigerian Advertising Laws

The Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria (ARCON) has filed a N30 billion ($44 million) lawsuit against Meta Platforms Incorporated(Owners of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp), alleging that the company has violated Nigerian advertising laws by running unvetted ads on its Facebook and Instagram platforms.

ARCON claims that Meta’s failure to vet ads has led to the publication of indecent and misleading ads, harming Nigerian consumers and damaging the country’s advertising industry. The regulator is also seeking damages for the loss of revenue to the Nigerian government.
