Nigerian youths on twitter are presently dragging Nollywood actor and politician, Desmond Elliot for allegedly supporting social media regulation bill.
According to @DrOlufunmilayo on twitter, Desmond Elliot is the one pushing the Lagos state house of assembly to develop a bill to regulate and control speech on social media.
“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?” he tweeted.
This has however aggravated the anger of some Nigerian youths and they decided to take to twitter to drag the honorable.
