- Canada has been asked not to give asylum to DJ Switch
- The petitioner said she must face terrorist allegation leveled against her in Nigeria
- DJ Switch played an active role in the recent EndSARS movement that rocked the country
As Nigerians continue to discuss the recent EndSARS movement, the Canadian parliament has been asked to deny DJ Switch asylum in the country.
As a result of this, more than 900 people have signed a petition calling for her denial after news emerged that is seeking asylum in Canada.
She claimed that she received death threats over her involvement during the #EndSARS protest. Recall that she did an Instagram live during the shooting of unarmed protesters at the Lekki tollgate by men in military uniform.
The petition was initiated by Femi Fako, titled “Refuse the Canadian Asylum application of Ms. Obianuju Udeh and her associates now!”
The petitioners said denying Switch and her associates asylum in Canada will ensure they face the “terrorist charges” pressed against them in Nigeria, The Cable reports.
“Reject the asylum applications now! They must come back to Nigeria to face terrorist charges. It’s a must!.”
Meanwhile, different reactions have trailed her proposed move to Canada on social media.

"If DJ Switch eventually settles down in Canada and have family there and then one day maybe her son or daughter now wins an election in Canada, people like Governor Fayemi of Ekiti will now tweet "That's our daughter from Nigeria".
A. Eric K commented:
"DJ Switch had to abandon her life in Nigeria to seek assylum in Canada because your government was more concered about her voice than the actual soldiers that went on a killing spree in Lekki. If that does not scare you enough, I don't know what else should."
Tope Akinyode stated:
"DJ Switch became endangered & had to escape from the government because she spoke up. This govt that is forcing it's best brains into asylum is also granting amnesty to Boko Haram & absorbing armed bandits into the society. Abeg, this #OneNigeria of Lord Luggard is a joke."
"Very pleased for DJ Switch. Also heartbroken a little because this is her home, she had a great career, friends, family etc. But Nigeria eats it young so here we are."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that a Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) told the United Nation (UN) to flag the recently held EndSARS protest as a "violent insurrection" against a democratically elected government of Nigerian state.
Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, chairman of the group, made this controversial demand on Monday, November 9, in Abuja as the specks of dust from the EndSARS protest are winding down.
The coalition also appealed to the global body to ensure that groups, organisations and individuals supporting the protest are sanctioned appropriately.
