- The federal government has described DJ Switch who filmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate as a fraud
- Lai Mohammed, minister for information and culture, noted that Switch will soon be exposed
- The minister also called the disc jockey a pedlar of fake news
Following conflicting reports on casualties after the Lekki toll gate shooting, the federal government has said Obianuju Catherine Udeh popularly known as DJ Switch is a fraud who will soon be exposed.
Lai Mohammed, minister for information and culture, revealed this on Thursday, November 19, at a press conference on the #EndSARS protest and its aftermath in Abuja.
According to the minister, DJ Switch is a front for divisive and destructive forces that will be exposed in the fullness of time.
The minister speaking on the roles that Switch played after she went live on Instagram filming the army shooting at protesters said that the DJ was one of the purveyors of fake news during the #EndSARS protest.
Mohammed questioned her motive, which he said was “suspicious” as she is yet to provide the judicial panel of inquiry investigating police brutality with any evidence of killings.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Canadian high commission in Nigeria said it does not accept refugee applications directly from people.
This came after speculations that DJ Switch was granted asylum following alleged threats to her life over her involvement in the #EndSARS protest.
The commission in a statement posted on Twitter on Wednesday, November 11, said it only considers applications from individuals who must be referred by a designated referral organisation or a private sponsor.
In a related development, a Twitter user, Bayo Adedosu, who referred to himself as an IT consultant, has offered to give the sum of N150,000 to anyone who can provide verifiable pictures of persons killed during the Lekki shootings.
On his Twitter handle, Adedosu had offered N50,000 as a reward but later said the amount has been increased to N150,000.
