DJ Switch Kicks Against Reopening Lekki Tollgate

Nigerian Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, professionally known as DJ Switch, has opposed the decision of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Enquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS related abuses and other matters to return control of the Lekki Toll Gate plaza to the Lekki Concession Company (LCC).

AllNews reported that the nine-man panel of Inquiry, which was set up by the Lagos State Government to investigate the October 2020 Lekki shooting incident, gave the approval on Saturday that the Lekki Tollgate be reopened.

Reacting to the panel's decision, DJ Switch -- who was at the toll gate, livestreaming the violence that occured on October 20, 2020 -- kicked against the panel's decision.

Via Twitter, she stated that reopening the tollgate is a wrong move as justice has not been served yet.

She wrote, “We cannot allow operations to begin at the Lekki Tollgate when justice has not prevailed! This is wrong! I have always known from the start, the panel trolls screamed at my absence for is a sham! @followlasg  you have failed the young people of Lagos state! #EndSARS”

In November, the DJ told a Canadian parliament that the soldiers who shot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos told her they were acting on “orders from above.”
