sites run by the indigenous people of Biafra (who seek independence from

If you're in Nigeria and interested in testing these sites, you can do
so via the following OONI Run link:


This will prompt you to install the OONI Probe mobile app (if you
haven't already), to test the URLs that are reportedly blocked in Nigeria.

By testing these sites with OONI Probe, you will:

- confirm whether these sites are in fact blocked (in the network that

- learn how they are blocked

- receive relevant circumvention advice (if they are found to be blocked)

- increase transparency of these censorship events (since the data is
automatically published)

All the best,
