Former APC Presidential Aspirant Threatens To Sue Twitter CEO For Supporting #EndSARS
A former Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adamu Garba has threatened to drag Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, for supporting #EndSARS campaign.
Naija News reports that protesting youths in Nigeria are agitating for the end to Police brutalization and extra judicial killings of Nigerians. The protesters have been on the streets for six days now, protesting the brutalities, humiliation, and extortion of Nigerians, especially the youths.
The protesters demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a police unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi, using a hashtag: #EndSARS.
On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu disbanded SARS following a widespread protest from Nigerians worldwide.
However, since the announcement that SARS has been scrapped, the protesters have refused to leave the streets, which Sagay says might force the Federal Government to take drastic measures against the protesting youths.
On Wednesday, Twitter CEO lent his voice to the struggle by tweeting #EndSARS and thereafter, verified four front liners of the campaign. He also called for donations to help the campaign.
