The Federal Government says well known disc jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, referred to as DJ Switch, “will be uncovered” soon over her cases on the supposed shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldier at the Lekki cost court on October 20, 2020.
Priest of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made this known at a question and answer session in Abuja today. As indicated by him, the preparation was passed on to address waiting issues with respect to the #EndSARS fights for police change that shook the country a month ago.
Mohammed, who depicted the occasion of October 20, 2020 as a “slaughter without bodies”, demanded that in opposition to DJ Switch’s cases, not a solitary body has been delivered or a solitary family has come out to guarantee their relative was executed at the Lekki tollbooth.
He also said the government stands by last Saturday’s testimony of the Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, who told the Judicial Panel of Inquiry instituted by the Lagos State Government that blank bullets were fired at the toll gate.
The minister lamented that celebrities used the social media to circulate fake news during the #EndSARS crisis, noting that the government will not fold its arms and allow the trend to continue.
He said, “One of the purveyors of fake news was one DJ Switch which real name is Obianuju Catherine Udeh, even though she claimed authentic evidence of mass killings. Surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have, she chose to escape from the country on the claim that her life was in danger. In danger for who?
“The military has come out to say we never sought after her and to the best of my knowledge, the police never declared her wanted.
“Her conduct thus becomes suspect. Who is she fronting for? What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence, why is she not presenting such evidence to the panel? Since she was very desperate for asylum in any country, did she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country?”
In the fullness of time, this lady will be exposed for who she is, a fraud, a front for divisive and destructive forces.
“At this juncture, we want to appeal to countries that have made faulty judgements on the basis of fake news and disinformation emanating from #EndSARS crisis to endeavour to seek and find the truth.”
The PUNCH had earlier reported that DJ Switch claimed she helped to remove bullets from peaceful protesters who were shot at Lekki tollgate, according to her Instagram Live feed.
