The rapid growth in internet access and use in Africa, particularly through the mobile internet, makes it imperative for civil society and for internet companies committed to the free flow of information and freedom of expression to better understand how intermediary liability works (or does not work).

This paper looks at issues around intermediary liability and the legal and institutional environment in Nigeria, and draws conclusions based on these while making recommendations on how Nigeria can make the best of the on-going legislative processes that will define the liability of intermediaries.
