Former Nigeria presidential aspirant Adamu Garba said he has withdrawn his case against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for supporting the protests against police brutality.⁣⁣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 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.”⁣⁣
