Nigerian entertainers, Falz, Burna Boy, Dj Switch and political leader, Nnamdi Kanu have mentioned as the group of people who incited the youth to cause great disorder and confusion in the country during the #EndSARS protest.
In a memorandum together with evidence presented by Global Amnesty Watch (GAW) before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution, the above-mentioned group of people together with international agencies have been accused of using their platforms to create fake news about the protest which eventually threatened the peace and laws of Nigeria.
According to GAW, the founder of the micro-blogging app, Twitter, Jack Dorsey should also be brought to book as he is among the long list of people who circulated false news to cause fear and panic. The group also alleged that Nigerians at home and in diaspora helped raise funds to the tune of over N75 million through a group known as “The Feminist Coalition” to help push their agenda.
“The EndSARS protest across the country is assumed in many quarters to be without a leadership structure. While this position has been canvassed in numerous quarters, however, there seems to be a link with regards to the provision of logistic support to the protesters across the country. It is instructive to state that the EndSARS protest was funded from a well-concealed network that raised over N75 Million from donations from individuals in Nigerian and outside the shores of the country through a group called The Feminist Coalition,”
In light of this, they petitioned the judiciary panel to punish the , DJ Switch, Feminist Coalition, Burna Boy, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and Nnamdi Kanu for misinforming the youth and inciting them to cause terror.
