The development comes a day after the Nigerian government banned the U.S social networking giant operations in the country for deleting a remark of President Muhammadu Buhari adjudged genocidal.

Despite the ban, Nigerians are using Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass the ban which became effective Saturday morning.

As at press time, it is not yet unclear why the platform took down the emoji.
