Adamu Garba And Lawyers Fail To Appear In Court For The Hearing Of His $1bn Suit Against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey



Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, filed a lawsuit against Twitter CEO, in regard to his support for the EndSARSprotests in Nigeria which rather turned violent at a point in time.

Adamu in the court paper asked the court to compel Jack to pay the Nigerian government $1 billion as compensation for all the damages caused by the #EndSARS protest, and asked the court to compel the Nigerian Communications Commission to shut down Twitter and prevent it from operating within the Nigerian cyberspace.


However, a Nigerian lawyer, Tope Akinyode who had earlier filed a lawsuit challenging the criminal complaint administered by Adamu Garba against Jack Dorsey, has given an update on the case.

According to him, Adamu and his legal team failed to show up for hearing at the Federal High Court without giving reasons for their absence.

”BREAKING: I was at the Federal High Court today to defend Adamu Garba’a lawsuit against @jack and @Twitter. However, @adamugarba

& his lawyers failed to show up in Court without given reasons & the Court has now adjourned case to 22nd April, 2021.”

The Federal High court Abuja has adjourned the case till April 22nd, 2021.
