Adamu Garba, CEO of IPI Global who declared his intention to contest for presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has threatened to file a lawsuit against Jack Dorsey, Twitter chief executive officer.
Dorsey, on Wednesday night, joined other international figures backing the movement aimed at ending police brutality in the country and called for donations to support it.
Reacting to his comment in a Twitter thread, Garba called out the Twitter CEO for rooting for a movement that has “transformed into political agitation and capable of breaking law and order in the country”.
“Dear @jack, It’ll do you a lot more good if you stay away from Nigerian politics. You should know that the so-called #EndSARS protest has transformed into political agitation, capable of breaking law & order in our country. You should not be a moral & financial sponsor to this,” he wrote.

The former APC presidential aspirant said it was unfortunate that the protesters have continued with their agitations even when relevant authorities had addressed the issues they raised.
“This is Nigeria, most of the demands initially presented was attended to by the responsible authorities. SARS no longer exist in this country. Your support for a disbanded entity was a needless interference. We cannot allow killings again in Nigeria in the name of protests,” he added.
“l understand that this may play well to your business, you have more content, more people & more activity on your platform. But to us, it’s about life, peace and security of our dear country, we cannot allow you to be part of the people sponsoring disorder. We need peace & prosperity.”
Garba also threatened to file a lawsuit Dorsey if the demonstration degenerates into disorder in the country.
“I can see you are even sharing a link for people to donate money for this protest, an event capable of escalation beyond our already overstretched security management. If this protest continued to evolve into disorder (hopefully not). As a Nigerian citizen, we’ll meet in court.”
