Adamu Garba, a former presidential aspirant, has taken Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to court over the End SARS protests in Nigeria.
Garba is asking the Federal High Court to order the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to shut down the social media platform.
Adam, who has a Twitter account, posted a video explaining his action on Tuesday.
He declared that Dorsey is sponsoring an alleged plot to oust President Muhammadu Buhari.
Garba said the tech mogul threw his weight behind the donation of funds through a bitcoin account.
The applicant stated that as a patriotic citizen, he cannot sit idly.
In his fundamental human rights suit, Garba prayed the court to “direct the 7th respondent (NCC) to stop the operation of Twitter International Company in any part of the territory of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Garba has demanded that Dorsey pay $1 billion to Nigeria.
He tweeted: “If you truly love Nigeria, you should love these demands from Jack:
“Pay $1bn as compensation to the victims of #EndSARS; Twitter to set up offices in Nigeria, hire Nigerians & pay taxes; He should apologize to Nigerian people & government”.
Garba added that the demands “should be celebrated”.
Twitter and Dorsey are yet to react to the lawsuit.
