DJ switch finally speaks out for the first time since she luckily survived the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre
DJ Switch, a popular female Disc Jockey, who went live during the shooting of protesters at Lekki toll gate, has finally broken silence following the incident.
Naijaray.com.ng recalls that on the 20th of October 2020 some military personnel stormed the Lekki Toll Plaza to shoot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters.
The Nigerian Army has denied any involvement in the shooting, even stating that videos showing their officers actively shooting at the protesters was photoshopped.
Meanwhile, DJ Switch who extended her appreciation to all who stood by her provided an insight of what happened that night, and the biggest mistake she made.
“I just want to clear a few things that I’ve been seeing online. To our leaders, I urge you please do not minimize the suffering of families. Do not insult the grief of Nigerians, do not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Do not insult the pain that families are facing. People were falling left and right.
“Yes there were soldiers there. Another part that people are not really talking about. The police also came, the SARS people we’re talking about also came minutes after the soldiers left. They were tear gassing. It’s like cotonou pepper. Our coconut head generation. They will run and they will come back.
“They switched off the lights and it was pitch black. While the soldiers were running around and picking their shells, we were running around and picking their shelves too. The police and SARS were also there, aiming and shooting. Who takes life bullets to a protest? Who does that?”
