Former Nollywood actor and lawmaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Desmond Elliot, has been dragged by Nigerian celebrities on social media.
This was after a video surfaced showing him addressing the Lagos State House of Assembly on the need to regulate social media in Nigeria.
Backing the idea, Desmond Elliot made reference to the chaos that erupted from the EndSARS protests which led to looting and arson across Nigeria.
The lawmaker also advised celebrities and social media influencers against using their platforms to promote hate in the country.
This didn’t sit well with many of them who dragged him on Twitter.
Below are a few posts gathered by The Nation.
