A former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba II has sued Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey for allegedly interfering in Nigerian local politics, demanding $1 billion compensation.

In a suit he filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, the politician urged the court to compel the Nigerian Communications Commission to shut down Twitter and prevent it from operating within the Nigerian cyberspace.

Dorsey angered Garba last week when the Twitter CEO solicited funds for the ongoing EndSARS protests on the platform.

The EndSARS protest is largely coordinated on Twitter, where funds have also been generated.

Garba said in last week’s tirade that Dorsey interfered in the nation’s local politics to promote unrest in Nigeria by endorsing the protest and posting links to donations.

He filed the fundamental rights enforcement suit after he earlier threatened to do so if the EndSARS protests led to the loss of Nigerian lives.

There have been reports of deaths in Lagos, Abuja, Oyo, Osun and a few other states in Nigeria since the protests began.
