Desmond Elliot is catching a lot of flak on social media for insulting Nigerians who are calling for the prosecution of those responsible for the massacre that happened at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20.
In new videos that are making rounds on social media, the former actor turned politician called the protesters “kids”, ranted about how these supposed children insulted folks like him online, before he went on to accuse celebrities and influencers of using their platforms to spread hate toward the government.
“Please stop the hatred,” he said.
And he said a lot more.

Days ago, he was accused of supporting a bill that will censor Nigerians, which he denied. Now, the video is out and Nigerians are ripping him to shreds.
See the reactions:
Desmond Elliot you fall my hand oh bros, nawa oh

Young people were massacred.
Ambushed by soldiers invited by a govt of lunatics who swore to protect them.
Does Desmond have a soul?
How are you more angry about social media than about the massacre?
Pls NEVER forget who Desmond Elliot is. He’s an enemy of young people.

Desmond Elliot is talking as if the attack on Oba’s palace was planned and scheduled on social media. Most of the COVID 19 palliative looters aren’t even on social media. He should just tell us the main reason he is actually pained cus it can’t be this.

Desmond Elliot will come back here and meet us ”his children” in 2023, by then we will remind him of everything he has done, from his plastic public toilet to his foolishness in the house. And we will show him that days of rigging yourself to power have been washed and sundried.
