Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook-owned social network, Instagram has apologised for incorrectly flagging #EndSARS posts related to the Lekki massacre in Nigeria as false information.

Instagram made the apology in a statement on Twitter via its official PR team’s handle.

Instagram alleged that its systems had technical issues, leading to the inaccurate marking of #EndSARS content as untrue. The company however said the glitch has now been fixed.

This came after many Nigerians had reported across social media that Facebook and Instagram were labelling posts containing photos/videos on the killings of #EndSARS protesters in Lekki as false information.
