The National Assembly amends the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act

The Nigerian government has recently enacted the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, prevention, etc.) (Amendment) Act 2024 to improve and enhance the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, prevention, etc.) Act 2015. The amendment is designed to stop cybercriminals from exploiting Nigeria’s digital space and to address the new and evolving ways in which threat actors may seek to undermine the legal framework and technological measures introduced to deter their nefarious activities.
