We’re not after DJ Switch – Army

The Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo has told the judicial panel that the army is not in search of disc jockey DJ Switch.

Mr Taiwo said this in his testimony before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Saturday.

He said, “Some people take delight in misrepresenting Nigeria and particularly the Nigerian Army to the international community and our fellow Nigerians. This, I believe is done for pecuniary gains.

“Quite recently, a Nigerian, Catherine Udeh, also known as DJ Switch, claimed the Nigerian Army was looking for her. There is nothing further than the truth.”

Charles Abi personal assistant to singer Peter Okoye on November 9 said DJ Switch was safe and out of Nigeria.

DJ Switch says she has received several threats since her Instagram live coverage of the shooting of protesters by men in military uniform at Lekki toll gate, Lagos on October 20.

She was signed to Peter Okoye as his disc jockey in 2017.
