Social media platforms Whatsapp, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger all went down in a major outage at around 1730 GMT on Friday, according to the tech monitoring website Downdetector.

However, shortly after 7 PM (WAT), several Whatsapp users said on social media that they were able to again send messages on the app.

Instagram also came back after about an hour.

All three sites belong to US social giant Facebook, which was unable to immediately provide information on the extent and length of the problem when contacted by AFP.
