Adamu Garba, a former presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained why he and his team were absent at the hearing of his suit filed against the founder and CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey.

According to the politician, his lawyers received the notice for the hearing late hence why they requested for an adjournment.

Recall that Tope Akinyode, a Nigerian rights lawyer who filed a lawsuit challenging the criminal complaint administered by former Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba against CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, said Garba and his lawyer’s failed to show up for hearing at the Federal High Court on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.

Speaking on his decision to not appear, Garba took to his Twitter account to reveal the reasons, while also stating that his team will pursue the case to the end.

He wrote;

“Our lawyers got the notice for the hearing pretty late, so we had to request for adjournment to the case which the court graciously granted. Thus the 21st April 2021 date was set.

However, we may approach the court to request for an earlier date.

Stay tuned. We will win this.

We will pursue this case to the end. No going back.

We will not allow any violation and/or interference in our local political affairs by any foreign actor.

This case will serve as a deterrent to anyone who grossly abuse his privilege against our country.

Jack must pay.

“We trust in the court ability to deliver the right justice, against violation of our sovereignty, subversion of our peace and collective well-being of Nigeria’s security.

“We therefore, look forward to having Twitter office in Nigeria and $1bn for the victims of #EndSARS protest.
