Lai Mohammed says Twitter founder Jack Dorsey should be blamed for EndSARS losses

There is an update on the ban of microblogging site Twitter by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

According to Lai Mohammed the Minister of Information and Culture, founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey should be blamed for the losses Nigeria incurred during the protests to end operations of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).

In Abuja on Tuesday, June 14, Mohammed said this when he appeared on a Radio Nigeria call-in program.

Mohammed said, “If you ask people to donate money via bitcoins for EndS ARS 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.”

On if the ban was as a result of a deleted Tweet of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mohammed said,  “Twitter has become a platform of choice for a particular separatist promoter. The promoter consistently used the platform to direct his loyalists to kill Nigerian soldiers and policemen, run down INEC offices and destroy all symbols of Nigeria’s sovereignty. Every attempt to persuade Twitter to deny its platform to this separatist leader was not taken serious’’ he said
