Desmond Elliot,who was dragged on twitter by Nigerians for allegedly supporting an anti social media bill, had earlier took to Instagram to deny the allegations of being one of those pressing for an anti-social media bill to repress free speech.
Responding to the Lagos lawmaker’s denial of the allegations, Dr. Olufunmilayo a twitter influencer and medical doctor had asked him to release a footage of what he said concerning celebrities and influencers.
