However, Idemudia Dima-Okojie, WeChat country manager for Nigeria, has denied the claims and revealed that Nigeria is an important market for WeChat, adding that the company only decided to streamline its operations in Nigeria.

"Nigeria remains one of our focal growth areas in Africa. We've been in Nigeria for a few years and this year, we've decided we need to streamline our operations on the ground in order to achieve optimum strategic objectives," Dima-Okojie said, according to Innovation Village.

It is very uncertain right now what Dima-Okojie means by "streamlining" WeChat's operations in Nigeria. Will there be scaled down support for the app in Nigeria? Will it cut down on its staff?

Whatever happens, Pulse Tech will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated accordingly.

Also, WeChat Nigeria's Facebook and Twitter pages last posted on March 11 and February 28 respectively.
