#EndSARS: Adamu Garba withdraws his case against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (VIDEO)

Published

on

Former Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has withdrawn his $1 billion lawsuit against Twitter and its Founder, Jack Dorsey, over the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.

Adamu filed the lawsuit against the tech guru after he, Dorsey, showed his support for the EndSARS protest in October 2020.

Adamu in his lawsuit asked the court to compel Jack to pay the Nigerian government $1 billion as compensation for all the damages caused by the #EndSARS protest. He alleged that the grand plan of Jack and others was to use the protest to topple the government of the day.  He asked the court to compel the Nigerian Communications Commission to shut down Twitter and prevent it from operating within the Nigerian cyberspace.

In a video posted online, Adamu explained the reason for withdrawing the case.

He said;

”My case with Jack was an effort to try to prevent Nigeria from getting these foreign interference, all those international actors that were coming in the name of human rights to cause havoc so that you internally can self-destruct to their profitability. 

Most of them profit from our instability and disunity. So what I did was to quickly hang a court case on his neck. Most of these publicly listed companies, especially the CEOs of those companies are only afraid of legal cases. Once you hang in a legal case on theiur head, they know that their chances of getting into trouble with their CEO position is threatened. That is why if you notice, as soon as that happened, he stopped tweeting about soliciting to continue for the nation to continue the protest. 

To the best of my knowledge, that is a very big win to stopping him from playing the script they played in Egypt, Syria and Libya”he said

‘Using Hijab In Public Schools Would Expose Christain Pupils To Terrorists Attacks

School Girls In Hijab

The Kwara State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria has reacted negatively against the state government’s approval of the use of hijab by female Muslim pupils in public schools.

According to the association, the new policy would “cause discrimination in schools and allow terrorists to easily identify our children and wards”.

Kwara State government had last Friday closed down 10 Christian schools in Ilorin, the state capital, following tension on the wearing of hijab in the schools.

But while announcing the reopening of schools from Monday, March 8, 2021, in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof Mamma Jibril, on Thursday, it said female Muslim students should be allowed to wear hijab in all grant-aided public schools in the state.

The statement titled, ‘Position of Kwara State Government on the Hijab Question in Public Schools,’ read in part, ‘Sequel to recent developments in our state over the status of the hijab in public/grant-aided schools, the state government has consulted widely with thought leaders and leaders of both Muslim and Christian communities with a view to clarifying issues and reaching a consensus.”

However, CAN, in a reaction, disagreed with the government over the use of hijab in schools established by Christian missions.

It also accused the government of taking a decision on a matter that was still before the Supreme Court.

The association’s reaction was contained in a communiqué after a stakeholders’ meeting attended by proprietors of grant-aided schools, heads of block and heads of different denominations, and jointly signed by its Secretary, Rev Reuben Ibitoye, and Publicity Secretary, Apostle Sina Ibiyemi.

It read in part, “The body condemns the use of hijab in Christian missions grant-aided schools as this will cause discrimination in schools and allow terrorists to easily identify our children and wards.

“Christian mission grant-aided schools should be returned to the owners promptly as most of these schools have churches besides them and unnecessary trespass may lead to the breakdown of law and order. Christian faithful should occupy all grants-aided schools.”

Efforts to get the reaction of the Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers, Olu Adewara, proved abortive as he neither took calls nor replied to a text message sent to him.

Kwara State defends decision.

However, Kwara State Government said it approved the use of hijab by Muslim female students in its public schools after consultations with stakeholders and relevant laws in the state.

It also said it recognised the right of every child in public schools to freedom of worship.

‘Any Attempt To Arrest Me Would Fail’- Sunday Igboho

SUNDAY IGBOHO

Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said that any attempt by the police, the army and the Department of State Services to arrest him, saying any effort to arrest him on Yorubaland will fail.

He said this during an interview with Punch on Friday, while reacting to the clash between him and security agents around the Guru Maharaji bus stop along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The Yoruba rights activist, who has been in the news for serving a quit notice on Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the South-West, said he was never invited before they attempted to arrest him.

Igboho, therefore, stated that he did not know why he was being targeted. He advised the Federal Government to focus on capturing Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, and invite Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who has been meeting with bandits in recent times.

He said, “I was never invited. They just lay in ambush for me at Guru Maharaji and started shooting. They started shouting, ‘Where is Sunday Igboho?’ I identified myself and asked them what the problem was. They said I was under arrest and I said, ‘For what? On my father’s land? That was how it degenerated.

“When they noticed how tense everywhere was, they fled. They came in four Hilux vans and a Toyota Land Cruiser. There are bandits operating all over the place but people like me who are defending our fatherland are the ones you want to arrest. Why?”

When asked if the police had invited him, he said, “I have not been invited. What have I done to warrant an arrest? Why do they want to arrest me? What have I done?”

On whether he would honour a police invitation if invited, Igboho said, “Go and ask them to invite Gumi and Shekau first before disturbing me. Let them face the bandits instead.”

When asked if he would go into hiding, he said, “What for? I am in the neighbourhood. I cannot run.”

He added that he had returned to his base in Ibadan.

He also revealed that his bank account which was initially frozen has had the restriction lifted.

Witnesses reports

One of the teachers at the school claimed that close to 550 students were abducted by gunmen.

The teacher who spoke to Daily Trust said out of 600 students of the school, about 50 were left behind.

The teacher said; 

“Initially, the school authorities prevented them from going with the remaining students but they grew angrier and began to pull down doors and windows of the buildings in the school and the school authority had to yield to their demands.

“When the gunmen laid siege, they attacked the soldiers stationed in the community before they gained entry into the school.

“Some people told us that they stationed vehicles at the outskirts of the school.

“Security operatives and the local vigilante groups are trailing the gunmen and dozens of other residents have volunteered to take part in the search.”

Another staff of the school who spoke on condition of anonymity said,

”The gunmen in their hundreds invaded the town around 2 am on Friday, shot sporadically in the air to scare the residents before coming into the school. After taking away most of the students, we rounded up those that escaped or hid from the bandits and conducted a census where we counted 54 students and we are still searching to see if we can get more.”

The abductors are yet to contact anyone with their demands.
