Former Nigeria presidential aspirant Adamu Garba said he has withdrawn his case against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for supporting the #EndSARS protests against police brutality.
Jack Dorsey had spoken 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 hoodlums who looted and destroyed public and private properties.
Garba had sued the Twitter boss for allegedly meddling in Nigeria’s internal affairs and sponsoring the protests especially when Jack tweeted in support of the donations led by FemCO to support 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.”
He thereafter instituted a $1 billion suit against Jack Dorsey at the Federal High Court, Abuja, over alleged sponsorship of the #EndSARS protest across the country.
Eventually, he said in a statement via his Twitter page on Monday that he has instructed his lawyers to withdraw the case despite initially boasting of certain victory in court.
