The Federal Government has said that Twitter and its founder, Jack Dorsey, are liable for the losses the country suffered during the EndSARS protest.
Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, made the allegation on Tuesday when he featured on “Politics Nationwide,’’ a Radio Nigeria call-in programme.
Mohammed alleged that Dorsey raised funds through Bitcoins to sponsor the EndSARS protest while his platform, Twitter, was used to fuel the crisis.
He said when he made the allegations earlier, Nigerians did not take him seriously until an online media outfit carried out investigation and fact-checking.
The minister said the online publication confirmed that Dorsey retweeted some of the posts by some of the coalitions supporting the EndSARS protest.
He said it was also confirmed that the Twitter founder launched a fund raising,/asking people to donate via Bitcoins and also launched Emoji to make the EndSARS protest visible on the microblogging site.
He said Dorsey also retweeted the tweets of some foreign and local supporters of EndSARS.
“If you ask people to donate money via bitcoins for EndSARS protesters, then you are vicariously liable for whatever is the outcome of the protest.
