Swaying from addressing the brutality at the Lekki Massacre that sent a number of unarmed protesters to their untimely death, the politician dwelled on the abuse of leaders on social media and the destruction of property.
This has gotten tweeps sick to their stomachs as they slammed him for passing such thoughtless comments in condoning the murder of innocent demonstraters.
However, Nigerian music icon, Davido, has waded into the conversation with a tweet that read, ”Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious childhood memories he gave us in movies.”
