Mr. Adamu Garba a former Nigerian presidential candidate has filed a $1 billion dollar lawsuit against Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey for supporting the ongoing #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.
Adamu is asking the court to compel Jack to pay the Nigerian government $1 billion as compensation for all the damages caused by the #EndSARS protest.
He is also asking the court to compel Jack to establish a Twitter office here in Nigeria. He alleged that the grand plan of Jack and others is to topple the government of the day. He asked the court to compel the Nigerian Communications Commission to shut down Twitter and prevent it from operating within the Nigerian cyberspace.
Speaking to newsmen at the court premises, Adamu stated as follows:
Jack Dorsey, the Twitter owner and Twitter International as a company, for actively sponsoring and supporting the#EndSARS movement by encouraging funding for this movement that has resulted into serious catastrophy for this country. I am sure most of you are aware of what is happening.
Now we have several uprising in the country, destruction of so many lives and properties is ongoing and therefore, we are calling on Jack Dorsey to come and pay Nigerian government $1 billion in compensation for all the damages that he caused this country and also we knew exactly the kind of script they play in other countries when they intervene using their social platform.
So for his gross abuse of priviledge because it is a platform where most of the gullible Nigerians have joined and have been actively patronising and supporting him, he went ahead and tweeted that people should donate to a Bitcoin account, an acount that is untrackable, to us.
The end game is to topple the democratically elected government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and so as a patroitic citizen, I cannot sit and wait for our country degenerate like Libya, the way we have seen now in Egypt when it turned out to be a graveyard.
We cannot allow those kind of damages happen in Nigeria and that is why we are here to call on him to make sure he complies to come and pay Nigerian government a billion dollar in settlement for all the damages he is causing in this country.”
