Nigerian Minister of Information & Culture, Lai Mohammed has come for ENDSARS activist, DJ Switch, claiming she would be exposed soon.
DJ Switch was present at the scene of the Lekki Tollgate shooting where unarmed peaceful protesters were reportedly fired at by men in Nigerian army uniform.
The Nigerian female disc jockey who caught the incidence via her Instagram Live session has since stated that she had received threats to her life. She has also reported the painful event to the Canadian parliament as well as CNN.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has denied the report as ‘fake’ with Lai Mohammed stating that DJ Switch would be exposed soon. Lai Mohammed, made this known at a press conference in Abuja today.
Mohammed, who described the event of October 20, 2020 as a “massacre without bodies”, insisted that contrary to DJ Switch’s claims, not a single body has been produced or a single family has come out to claim their family member was killed at the Lekki tollgate.
He also back up the testimony of the Nigerian Army who claimed that blank bullets were fired at the toll gate.
Lai Mohammed lamented on the use of social media to spread fake news by Nigerian celebrities especially DJ Switch. According to the minister, there’s no threat on the life of the disc jockey as she has claimed.
In his word, “the military has come out to say we never sought after her and to the best of my knowledge, the police never declared her wanted.
“Her conduct thus becomes suspect. Who is she fronting for? What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence, why is she not presenting such evidence to the panel?
“Since she was very desperate for asylum in any country, did she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country?” he added.
Lai Mohammed insisted that DJ Switch would be exposed soon while appealing to countries that have made faulty judgements on the basis of fake news and disinformation emanating from #EndSARS crisis to endeavour to seek and find the truth.
Meanwhile, CNN, recently released a footage of their investigations about the Lekki Toll gate shooting. Their findings shows that live bullets purchased in Serbia by Nigerian Army were shot at protesters.
