Nigeria’s Advertising Regulatory Council (ARCON) has been granted permission by the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to serve a writ of summons on Meta, the owner of Facebook, for violating advertising laws in Nigeria.

The writ will be served at Meta’s corporate headquarters, which also owns Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp.

ARCON is seeking a declaration that publishing advertisements and marketing materials targeted at Nigeria through Meta’s platforms without prior vetting and approval by its advertising standards panel is illegal and disregards Nigerian culture, constitutional tenets, moral values, and religious sensitivity.

The regulatory body is also seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from publishing any advertising or marketing communications materials without recourse to ARCON in line with the country’s advertising law.

Additionally, ARCON is seeking N30 billion in fines and sanctions for the continued violations and infractions of the Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria Act No. 23 of 2022.
