Lekki Shooting: DJ Switch On The Run?

Nigerian female disc jockey, DJ Switch has alleged that her life is under threats, following her revelation on the Lekki shootings where soldiers opened gunfire on  #EndSars protesters.

Speaking with GQ, a US based magazine, Switch, born Obianuju Catherine Udeh, admitted that she was frightened and wouldn't lie about it.

“I have already been threatened. Of course, I’m frightened. I can’t even lie about that. I’m scared,” she said.

The artiste also said that a friend who works in the intelligence community warned her to stay away from the street.

“He called and said, ‘Please Switch, we actually need you to get away from the street because right now you have been marked as the face of that protest,” she added.

However, DJ Switch, while hoping she doesn't die, said she would never stop to spill the truth.

“It doesn’t stop me from saying the truth. I’m still going to say it, and I just hope I’m not going to die,” she added.

AllNews earlier reported that DJ Switch, who was present at the protest ground, said that 7 people had died before her phone went off and after that, the death toll had reached 15, and many were hit by bullets.

She also said that operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) were present at the Lekki tollgate.

According to the artiste who live-streamed the protest and shooting, the soldiers threw some bodies in their vans and took them away.
