I’d have sued CNN if they promoted #EndSARS like Twitter CEO – Adamu Garba

A former presidential aspirant Adamu Garba says he would have taken legal action against CNN following its investigation on the October 20 Lekki shooting released on Wednesday.

The network said its findings revealed the Nigerian Army opened fire at protesters, contrary to claims that blank bullets were used.

In reaction, Mr Garba who has a pending suit against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said CNN was only doing its job.

He tweeted: “I would have sued CNN if they instigated or sponsored people of Nigeria against its Govt. But one thing is clear. CNN is doing its job: Investigative & not ‘Conclusive’ reporting.

“Unlike Jack who interfered directly. While you enjoy the fleet, wait for response from authorities.”

Garba had dragged Mr Dorsey to a Federal High Court in Abuja for allegedly supporting the #EndSARS campaign against police brutality in Nigeria.

He asked the court to give “an order directing the 7th Respondent (Nigeria Communications Commission) to stop the operation of Twitter Intl Company in any part of the territory of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He also asked the court to order Dorsey and Twitter to pay him the sum of $1 billion as damages.
