DJ Switch reacts after Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry released names of victims, confirming Lekki Massacre happened

Nigerian female disc jockey Obianuju Catherine Udeh, professionally known as DJ Switch, has reacted after the Lagos Panel of inquiry confirmed that the Lekki Massacre happened.

DJ Switch has been described as the hero of the Lekki Massacre after she went to Instagram live on 20 October 2021, steaming unarmed protesters covered in a pool of blood as the Nigerian Army and Police fired bullets at them.

DJ Switch, since the incident, has been out of the public space after the Federal Government launched a search for her stating she was propagating bad news about the country.

During the first anniversary of the Lekki Massacre, the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, mocked DJ Switch, describing her as ‘Run-way DJ‘.

Reacting after the Lagos State of Inquire confirmed the Lekki Massacre happened, DJ Switch, in a post shared on the microblogging platform, said the Nigerian Government shattered many lives and tried to destroy her life for what they desperately wanted to cover up.

She wrote: Shattered so many life, tried to destroy mine. Only for what you desperately tried to hide to be made public…by you! The truth needs no defence!

Kemi Filani News recalls the panel, in its report, found “From the evidence of General A.I.Taiwo (Commander, 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Nigerian Army, Victoria Island, Lagos) on pages 6, 7, 21, 22, the Panel finds that the Nigerian Army fired both blank and live bullets at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, for the following reasons:

Apart from the military men in uniform, the Army left its base with vehicles, rifles and guns, containing live and blank bullets. General Taiwo admitted on page 22 that the Army went to the Lekki Toll Gate with live ammunition.

As of October 30, 2020, when the Panel visited the Lekki Toll Gate for its on the spot assessment, it recovered two bullets shells duly analyzed by the forensic expert hired by the Panel, Sentinel, who is very familiar with weapons used by the Nigerian Army.

These bullet shells were said to be the same as or similar to those usually used by the Nigerian Army, and they have expended shells, meaning they were fired live at the Lekki Toll Gate.
