Adamu Garba Withdraws Case Against Twitter CEO, Jack

Former Nigeria presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has withdrawn his case against the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Twitter International Company, Jack Dorsey.

Dorsey and many celebrities, sports stars and politicians spoke in support of the protests, which gained worldwide attention in October with the help of social media, especially Twitter.

The motion on notice was brought pursuant to order II Rules 1, 2, 3 of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules, 2009 and Sections 34(1), 35(1) and 41(1) and 43 of the 1999 Constitution.

But he said on Monday that he has instructed his lawyers to withdraw the case despite initially boasting of certain victory in court.

He tweeted, “I think the action has served its purpose. I’ve written to our lawyers to withdraw the case from court. I also tendered my sincere apologies to Nigerians who are pained by my #EndSARS actions. Nigeria shall rise.”

He said his case “with Jack was to prevent Nigerian from getting this foreign inteference in the name of human rights to cause havoc.”

Garba said he decided to ‘hang’ the case on Jack’s neck to have him withdraw his support for the protest.

“As soon as that (the suit) happened, you see that he stopped soliciting donations for the protest.

“To the best of my knowledge, that is a very big win to stop him (Jack) from playing the script in Egypt, Syria and Libya.”
