Meanwhile, previously reported that the reason for the shutdown of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp has been revealed.

The disappearance of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram has been linked to DNS, which is the traffic warden that tells internet traffic where to go or highway that connects internet users to these social media platforms.

This means over 122.5 million Nigerians - 23.88 million Nigerians on Facebook (as of August 2020), 90 million from WhatsApp (as of 2021), and 8.67 million on Instagram - couldn't access these platforms simultaneously.

DNS route every internet user request to their desired destination.

For example, if you type, the system that will connect you to the Google page is DNS - every internet property are linked to it, and if you search for any site online and the landing page isn't brought out, there is a high probability that the website is not on the internet because if it is, DNS will take you there.
