Wahala! Nigerians Lament As MTN Network Fails Days After Facebook Outage

Nigerians have taken to social media to lament as local MTN mobile network suffers network disruptions days after Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were hit by major outages.


Complaints of MTN’s disrupted data services flooded social media websites such as Twitter on this day being Saturday, October 9, 2021.


The data network problems started at exactly 3pm (NGT). Same way, there’s been issues trying to place calls across to all MTN Network Lines.

Meanwhile, MTN has not released any statement on the outage at the time of filing this report.


Here are some of the reactions gathered from Nigerians:

@SirLeoBDasilva: “I bought Airtel mifi today and ordered Glo mifi as well. My sister said I am too paranoid. Look at it now, my MTN lines have no network but my paranoid has kept me online.”


@feranmiokafor: ”MTN network just went off. As per no service, is it just me?”

@ManLikeAJ: “My MTN keeps going on and off, be like MTN wants to pull a Zuckerberg on us or am I alone in this, can’t even make calls.”


@_itzcandy: “wetin do MTN na.”

@valverian247: “MTN will just wake up and switch off its network without due notice to customers. Nawa ooo. Thank God for Airtel.”
