Obianuju Catherine Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s government as “a dictatorship with a democratic face”.
DJ Switch has been in the eye of the storm, since she recorded the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate by the Nigerian army on October 20, 2020 via Instagram Live.
In an interview with CNN’s Becky Anderson on Wednesday, she said, “I do not hold what the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria says to heart. Nigeria is a dictatorship with a democratic face. I think that is primarily to please the international community. It is our right to protest for the change that we demand. This government has used force from the beginning.
“They started with infiltrating a peaceful protest with things but that did not work. Then they moved to bring the military in. So, the same government that says that it has banned SARS for close to four years are saying that it wants to have a dialogue. The president has not even addressed the incident that happened at the Toll Gate so I do not take his words to heart. They must show accountability.”
Switch seized the opportunity to challenge the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to speak the truth about what happened at the Lekki Toll Gate.
