A member of Lagos State of House of Assembly, Honorable Mojisola Alli-Macaulay was served some hot lashes of words on social media for tagging them as Nigerian Youths drug addicts.
During a Lagos house plenary session on looting and hooliganism that trailed the EndSARS protest, Alli-Macaulay said “they are high on drugs all the time, most of them. They go to social media and say all sorts of things. I’m even scared to give my young children phones because I am scared of what they may see on social media. It is that bad,”
She had raised the issue as a major reason the social media and Nigerian Internet space should be regulated.
Few hours later, a picture of COVID-19 Palliatives being packed as souvenirs during the lawmaker’s birthday surfaced online. These allegations by Mojisola Alli-Macaulay led to a major outrage on Twitter. See some of the reactions below.
