Photo and video sharing App, Instagram has apologised to its users for tagging posts supporting the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria as false information.
The media company had face a heated backlash from Nigerians and other international figures for allegedly not backing the movement against police brutality in Nigeria.
Reacting to what appeared like an insensitivity on the part of the company, Instagram attributed the development to a system glitch.
The company, however, said the issue has been resolved, expressing its regret for letting users down “in such a time of need.”
“Yesterday our systems were incorrectly flagging content in support of #EndSARS, and marking posts as false. We are deeply sorry for this. The issue has now been resolved, and we apologize for letting our community down in such a time of need,” it wrote.
