Following the speech, Nigerians everywhere didn’t know what to say or where to begin. His speech left us speechless. Until we finally found our voices and begun to express our thoughts, so much so that right in this moment, Desmond Elliott is the NUMBER ONE trend on Twitter.

Nigerian celebrities of course weren’t left out in the discourse and today I’ll be sharing with you __ Nigerian celebrity reactions to Desmond Elliott’s speech.

15. Do2dtun

Nigerian personality Do2dtun said:

What the hell are you saying Desmond. You are justifying curses with dead bodies. Just play this out. If it was your child that was shot or killed by the police or in that feat that was so much of a mess, how would you feel. I hate justifications cos you are not doing any good to the situation. People were killed. Address the real issue. Stop picking pebbles and calling it diamonds. Listen i am a father and I find what you are saying utterly disgusting 🤮

So the people that went to loot did so because of social media?Not because of the bad leadership & years of terrible corruption??? ‘Celebrities’ & ‘Influencers’ spoke up as frustrated Nigerians. So the police is killing us and you care about insults? In your opinion Hon Desmond
