Former actor turned lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has been dragged on Twitter over a speech on the negative impact of social media and the call for its regulation.
This is coming following the actor’s claim of having nothing to do with the social media bill regulation contrary to rumour supporting the claim.
However, a video that surfaced on the internet shows the moment the lawmaker representing the Surulere constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly supported the social media bill, hence triggered an uproar across social media platforms.
See some reactions below …

I revealed it here that Desmond Elliot was pushing a dangerous narrative against us on social media at the House of Assembly.
I said there was a video.
They took down the website link to it.
He gave us Okoto acting with nollywood radarada.
How does it feel to look like a fool?
