Nigerian Disc Jokey Obianuju Catherine Udeh popularly known as DJ Switch has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s government as a dictatorship with a democratic face.
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.
“They know the truth and they have conflicting stories with each other. Nigerians have died and this is not a time to play games. Families are looking for their loved ones. The governor owes a responsibility to the citizens of Lagos State to say the truth,”she added.
”Nigeria is a dictatorship with a democratic face.” – DJ Switch speaks to CNN from hiding, talks about the horrors she witnessed at #endSARS protest, and why she can’t trust the Nigerian government.
