Former Nigeria presidential aspirant Adamu Garba said he has withdrawn his case against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for supporting the #EndSARS protests against police brutality.
Dorsey and many celebrities, sports stars, and politicians spoke in support of the protests, which gained worldwide attention in October with the help of social media, especially Twitter.
The protest held in major Nigerian cities for about two weeks before it was hijacked by hoodlums who looted and destroyed public and private properties.
In the wake of the violence that succeeded the protests, Garba sued the Twitter boss for allegedly meddling in Nigeria’s internal affairs and sponsoring the protests.
“It’ll do you a lot more good if you stay away from Nigerian Politics,” Garba, a member of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) tweeted in October. “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.”
Garba said Jack’s support for the protest “was a needless interference. We cannot allow killings again in Nigeria in the name of protests…we cannot allow you to be part of the people sponsoring disorder.”
