Here are the top Google searches among Nigerians in the past week.
Anambra church killing
News broke on Sunday that parishioners at the St. Philips Catholic church in Ozubulu village, Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra, were attacked leaving 11 people dead on the scene.
The Anambra state police command says they have begun to arrest suspects in connection with the shooting, which has been linked to a feud between two Igbo men.
Millions of Nigerians visited Google to search for updates about the shootings.
A photograph of a frail-looking Nigerian politician, Arthur Nzeribe, went viral. A flurry of negative reactions to the pictures has taken the social media by surprise.
The former senator has since spoken out about the comments addressed towards him and also debunked the rumours of him having a stroke.
During the week, the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) announced that anyone without a national identification number (NIN) will not be regarded as a Nigerian citizen.
This announcement alarmed a lot of concerned Nigerians, which made them head to Google to search for the NIMC website to gather information on how to go about registering for a NIN.
The government is determined to ensure that citizens are aware of their national identification number and is making it mandatory as from September 1, 2017.
Nigerians love to party, and this will explain why they hit Google this week for Olamide’s new single, ‘Wo’.
The song marks a return to the bullish hip-hop sound the rapper made popular.
