Run-Away DJ: Buhari's Minister Replies DJ Switch on Alleged EndSARS Massacre

  • The federal government is not ready to change its position that nobody was killed during the October 2020 EndSARS protest
  • In fact, Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture, has said that reports claiming otherwise are mere tales
  • The minister went on to mock one of those who presented a contrary claim, DJ Switch, calling her Run-Away DJ

Disc Jockey Obianuju Catherine Udeh (aka DJ Switch) has been referred to as a Run-Away DJ by the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

In his statement on Wednesday, October 20, in Abuja, Mohammed, during a press briefing titled The First Anniversary of The Phantom Massacre at Lekki Toll Gate, stated that claims that there were killings at the venue exactly one year ago are false.

The minister insisted that the said ballistic experts are not alone in reaching that conclusion as their findings were also backed by a report from the United States (US) Department of Justice.
