Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed on Thursday said the disc jockey DJ Switch who has been around the controversy surrounding the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by men in military uniform in Lagos on October 20 “will be exposed”.
Switch made a live recording on the fateful night at Lekki toll gate. She is currently out of the country for fear of her life.
The minister said during a press conference in Abuja, a day after a CNN report revealed soldiers shot live bullets at protesters, that contrary to Switch’s claims, no one has come out to claim their family member was killed at the toll gate.
He said, “One of the purveyors of fake news was one DJ Switch which real name is Obianuju Catherine Udeh, even though she claimed authentic evidence of mass killings. Surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have, she chose to escape from the country on the claim that her life was in danger. In danger for who?
“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 suspicious. 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?
“In the fullness of time, this lady will be exposed for who she is, a fraud, a front for divisive and destructive forces.”
