DJ Switch who went live to show all that transpired at the night of Lekki Toll Gate plaza has recounted her experience with soldiers after facing the Sub-Committee on International Human Rights of Canadian Parliament.

According to DJ Switch, the military shot at the peaceful protesters after creating a three-line formation and slammed claims that they shot blank bullets into the atmosphere. She added that she chanced upon more than seven shot persons.

She said; 

“On October 20, 2020, we had spirited Nigerians there united with one goal against police brutality against bad governance.

“What started out as a protest against police brutality with the unit called SARS unfortunately degenerated into something I still find hard to reconcile within my heart.

“We got information that the government wants to see me and six other people and I remember saying to them that we have no leader and if the government wanted to speak with us, he should kindly come to the toll gate and address Nigerians because we have been out for eleven days.”

DJ Switch told Sahara Reporters that the first gunshot came from behind and dispersed the gathered crowd in different directions. In order to prevent getting shot at, it was announced that all protesters should lie prostrate on the ground. She went ahead to disclose that a senior military officer ordered the soldiers to stop shooting however the shooting started again after some minutes.

The entertainer said; 

 “As we didn’t know where the gunshots were coming from and what they are about and then the lights went off.

“I remembered the military came in first, they stopped shooting at some point and I walked up to one of them and I asked why he was shooting at us and he said he had express order from above, and I was coming too close to him and if I come too close, it would be considered an attack on him and he would have to shoot.

“It didn’t take another ten minutes, the shooting started again. I remember seeing seven people that have been shot down and we were telling people on my live Instagram to help us call an ambulance.”

The entertainer opined that her life has been threatened after she went live on Instagram to show the shooting that occurred at the scene and since then she has always been on the run.

She added; 

“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.

“Just as I was leaving, I got a phone call that I should leave the vicinity because there are military men at the hospital.

“I had to abandon my home, I moved from people’s home, and then just to get out of Nigeria. I am still travelling, and I am not done with my trip.”
