Nigeria lifted a seven-month ban on Twitter Inc. in the West African country, after the social network agreed to various conditions.

Twitter will establish a legal entity in Nigeria and appoint a country representative to engage with the government when required, the National Information Technology Development Agency, or NITDA, said in a statement Wednesday announcing the imminent end of the suspension.
