Lekki Shooting: Dj Switch WIll Soon Be Exposed- FG

The Federal Government of Nigeria has alleged that female Disc Jockey, DJ Switch is one of the "purveyors of fake news", following her report on the shooting of #EndSars protesters at Lekki tollgate.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, on Thursday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed who reacted to CNN's detailed report on the incident, said that DJ Switch chose to escape to another country, "rather than providing evidence of mass killings."

According to Mohammed, the disc jockey's actions make her a suspect.

He said, “One of the purveyors of fake news was one DJ Switch which real name is Obianuju Catherine Udeh, even though she claimed authentic evidence of mass killings. Surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have, she chose to escape from the country on the claim that her life was in danger. In danger for who?

“The military has come out to say we never sought after her and to the best of my knowledge, the police never declared her wanted.

“Her conduct thus becomes suspect. Who is she fronting for? What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence, why is she not presenting such evidence to the panel? Since she was very desperate for asylum in any country, did she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country?

“In the fullness of time, this lady will be exposed for who she is, a fraud, a front for divisive and destructive forces.

“At this juncture, we want to appeal to countries that have made faulty judgements on the basis of fake news and disinformation emanating from #EndSARS crisis to endeavour to seek and find the truth,” the minister added.

AllNews earlier reported the disc jockey had claimed that she abandoned her home after getting death threats

Switch spoke during a teleconference with the sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development (SDIR) of the Canadian parliament.

“I have been on the move because they have been after my life. The first threat came in, I thought it was a joke, I sincerely thought it was a joke,” she said.
