Twitter Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jack Dorsey is being threatened by a Nigerian former presidential aspirant, that the CEO must not support the #ENDSRAS protest.
The CEO of the giant online platform defied Adamu Garba and tweeted his support for the #EndSARS movement again after being threatened.
Garba had asked Dorsey to stay away from Nigerian politics and threatened to sue him for supporting a protest that “has transformed into a political agitation.
Garba argue that the #ENDSARS protest is metamorphosing into a political vehicle capable of breaking law and order in the country.
The threat came after Dorsey tweeted support for the protests holding in Nigeria to end SARS and police brutality.
But Dorsey shoved the threat aside and tweeted again: “#EndSARS”.
His tweet came with an emoji of a raised fist in the colours of the Nigerian flag.
“It’ll do you a lot more good if you stay away from Nigerian Politics. You should know that the so-called #EndSARS protest have transformed into political agitation, capable of breaking law & order in our country. You should not be a moral & financial sponsor to this.
This is Nigeria, most of the demands initially presented was attended to by the responsible authorities. SARS no longer exist in this country. Your support for a disbanded entity was a needless interference. We cannot allow killings again in Nigeria in the name of protests.
I understand that this may play well to your business, you have more content, more people & more activity on your platform, but to us is about life, peace & security of our dear Country, we cannot allow you to be part of the people sponsoring disorder. We need peace & prosperity.
I can see you are even sharing a link for people to donate money for this protest, an event capable of escalation beyond our already overstretched security management. If this protest continued to evolved into disorder (hopefully not). As a Nigerian citizen, we’ll meet in court”.
