The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has asked DJ Switch who ”she is fronting for” and ‘who are her sponsors.’
The popular Disk Jockey has been in the limelight since she live streamed the October 20th, 2020 shooting of peaceful protesters by security agents at the Lekki Toll Plaza.
During an interview with Becky Anderson on CNN on Wednesday, DJ Switch said;
“Nigeria is a dictatorship with a democratic face. I think that it is primarily to please the international community. It is our right to protest for the change that we demand.”
“This government has used force from the beginning. They started with infiltrating a peaceful protest with things but that did not work. Then they moved to bring the military in.”
DJ Switch also called on Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to say the truth about the shooting of the EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday, October 20.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday November 19, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said DJ Switch was one of the purveyors of fake news and disinformation during and after the #EndSARS protest.
”Even when she claimed to have authentic evidence of mass killings, surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have to the judicial panel of inquiry into the protest, she chose to escape from the country under the pretext that her life was in danger.
I ask: in danger from whom? The military has come out to say they never sought after her. To the best of our knowledge, the police never declared her wanted. Her conduct thus becomes suspicious. Who is she fronting for?
What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence of killings, why is she not presenting it to the panel? If she was so desperate for asylum in any country, does she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country just to achieve her aim’’? he said
