Court Asked To Ban Twitter In Nigeria Over EndSARS protests

As the #EndSARS protests continue to rock major cities nationwide, a suit has been filed before a federal High Court in Abuja for the ban of technology giant  Twitter’s  operation in Nigeria. 

The suit was filed by a former presidential  aspirant and Chief executive Officer, CEO of IPI Global, Adamu Garba. 

Mr. Garba once declared his ambition to contest for the presidency in 2019. 

He filed a $1billion suit against the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey, for supporting the #EndSARS campaign taking place in Nigeria and among Nigerians in diaspora

Recall that the Twitter CEO Dorsey had showed solidarity with the #ENDSARS protesters when he joined other international  and notable figures endorsing the #EndSARS demonstration. 

Mr. Dorsey also created an algorithm via bitckun for the #EndSARS Protesters to receive donations. 

Garba, who had last week threatened to sue the Twitter CEO after calling him out for rooting for the movement which he said is “capable of breaking law and order in the country”, has now filed a suit at the court. 

In the suit filed in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, on Tuesday, the businessman asked the court to fine  Jack Dorsey and his company $1billion as damages against Nigeria for supporting the campaign.

He also sought a declaration directing the company “to stop the operation of Twitter Int’l  in any part of the territory of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
