Actor and Lawmaker, Desmond Elliot became a subject of ridicule and abuse after a certain Dr Olufunmilayo on Twitter said he is one of the lawmakers in the Lagos House of Assembly pushing for a bill to regulate speech on social media in the state.
He also insinuated that the State Government plans to cover up the #LekkiMassacre and also arrest anyone that comments on it on social media.
Dr Olufunmilayo tweeted;
The Lagos State House of Assembly is developing a bill to regulate and control speech on social media. Desmond Elliot is said to be one of those pushing this.
So the plan is to deny the Lekki Massacre and then start arresting anyone who tweets about it?
What is wrong with us?
