Twitter boss, Jack Dorsey liable for #EndSARS losses – Lai Mohammed

Mohammed made the comment when he featured on a Radio Nigeria call-in programme on Tuesday in Abuja.

The minister alleged that Dorsey raised funds through Bitcoins to sponsor the EndSARS protest while his platform, Twitter, was used to fuel the crisis.

He said Dorsey also retweeted the tweets of some foreign and local supporters of EndSARS.

Mohammed said;

“If you ask people to donate money via bitcoins for EndSARS protesters then you are vicariously liable for whatever is the outcome of the protest.

”We have forgotten that EndSARS led to the loss of lives, including 37 policemen, six soldiers, 57 civilians while property worth billions of naira were destroyed.

”164 police vehicles and 134 police stations were razed to the ground, 265 private corporate organisation were looted while 243 public property were looted.

”81 warehouses were looted while over 200 brand new buses bought by Lagos State Government were burnt to ashes’’.

The minister said it was unfair to conclude that the operation of Twitter was suspended indefinitely because it deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s message.
