A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the decision to Adamu Garba to Jack Dorsey of Twitter over #EndSARS protests.
Naija News had reported that Garba, a former Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), sued the Twitter CEO, for $1bn for supporting the #EndSARS campaign.
This online news platform recalls that the Twitter CEO lent his voice to the struggle last week by tweeting #EndSARS and thereafter, verified four front liners of the campaign. He also called for donations to help the campaign.

Displeased with the development, Garba had on the same day, threatened to drag the Twitter CEO to court for supporting the protest, adding that #EndSARS has been hijacked as is now a political movement.
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. https://t.co/slhwmOnCMY

The Nigerian government is waging war on us on ALL fronts. Adamu Garba is in court asking Jack for 1 billion USD. Governors are imposing curfews. Thugs are getting paid to disrupt protests.
All because we asked our own government to stop killing us 💔#EndSARS

I want Jack to remotely take that thing seriously and then come with receipts and sue the Nigerian Government, properly.
