Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey has unveiled special emoji for #EndSARS movement despite legal threat from former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba.
Jack revealed the special #EndSARS emoji, which is a fist with the colour of the Nigerian flag.
Recall that, the American technology entrepreneur, recently tweeted his support for the ongoing #EndSARS protest, against police brutality and extra judicial killings in Nigeria.
Shortly after his tweet, a former presidential candidate, Adamu Garba threatened to take legal actions against him.
The tweet reads,
Dear @jack It’ll do you a lot more good if you stay away from Nigerian Politics. You should know that the so-called #EndSARS protest have transformed into political agitation, capable of breaking law & order in our country. You should not be a moral & financial sponsor to this.
This is Nigeria, most of the demands initially presented was attended to by the responsible authorities. SARS no longer exist in this country. Your support for a disbanded entity was a needless interference. We cannot allow killings again in Nigeria in the name of protests.
I can see you are even sharing a link for people to donate money for this protest, an event capable of escalation beyond our already overstretched security management. If this protest continued to evolved into disorder (hopefully not). As a Nigerian citizen, we’ll meet in court.
However, regardless of the legal threat, the tech boss has now unveiled the #EndSARS emoji, and a lot of Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging platform to appreciate his support.
