Adamu Garba’s Crowwe app deleted from Android Play Store
Crowwe social media app, owned by former Nigeria presidential aspirant Adamu Garba, has been deleted from Google play store.
It would be recalled that Garba on Thursday urged the Federal Government to shut down Twitter from Nigeria’s internet space after the micro-blogging site deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s post.
Eventually, the federal government suspended Twitter operations in Nigeria.
Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information, who announced the suspension said the platform was suspended because of its persistent use for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.
Reacting, Garba in a tweet said, “Goodbye to Twitter in Nigeria, Welcome to Crowwe. Join us @CrowweApp now!”
Following the development, Nigerians took to google play store to drop horrible reviews on the instant messaging app, which imitates Twitter.
They also reported that Crowwe’s Terms and Conditions were plagiarized word for word from another app, Spotify.
A quick check at the social networking service shows that it has deleted the Crowwe app.
“Google removes from the Play Store, applications that are perceived to have violated its policy.
“Once your app is removed, the published version of your app won’t be available on Google Play until a compliant update is submitted.
“Until a policy violation has been fixed, don’t republish a removed app,” the app store policy said.
