However, the Lawmaker had since denied this allegation.
Reacting to the lawmaker’s denial of the allegation, Dr Olufunmilayo dared him to release to the world what he said about celebrities and influencers and also let the whole world see the video of what he said about social media regulation.
Sharing a link which supposedly captured the Lagos State House of Assembly plenary today, the social media commentator alleged that Desmond Elliot blamed celebrities/influencers for the carnage and went ahead to advocate for a social media regulation bill. He also alleged that the video evidence on the website of the Lagos state house of assembly has been taken down.
He tweeted in response,
On today’s plenary session, I have reliable information Desmond Elliot blamed celebs/influencers for the carnage and went ahead to advocate social media regulation bill.
The link to the video is https://lagoshouseofassembly.gov.ng/live/
