The lawmaker representing Surulere I constituency lamented how hate speech on social media is becoming the order of the day and even called users of social media "children".
He further added that if hate speech is allowed to continue, "there won't be Nigeria in the next five years."
The comments has drawn lots of reactions from Nigerians online and even the 30Billion Gang boss Davido couldn't hold it in.
On his official Twitter handle, he wrote : "Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious child hood memories he gave us in movies ...."
It is believed that Desmond Elliot is sponsoring a bill to censor social media contents although he has debunked such allegations.
