Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has questioned Nigerian singer, Obianuju Udeh aka DJ Switch over Lekki Massacre.
Recall that aka the disc Jockey used her Instagram live to give live updates when the military stormed the Lekki tollgate during the #EndSARS protest on October 20.
Also, she repeatedly come out to dismiss the claims of government at all levels on the number of casualties witnessed at the Lekki shooting incident.
While the Lagos state government claim two persons died, DJ Switch in a video she shared online, claimed she counted 15 dead bodies.
Following this, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has come out to state that DJ Switch was one of the purveyors of fake news and disinformation during and after the #EndSARS protest.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday November 19, the minister question the musician on who she is fronting for and who are her sponsors.
”Even when she claimed to have authentic evidence of mass killings, surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have to the judicial panel of inquiry into the protest, she chose to escape from the country under the pretext that her life was in danger.
I ask: in danger from whom? The military has come out to say they never sought after her. To the best of our knowledge, the police never declared her wanted. Her conduct thus becomes suspicious. Who is she fronting for?
What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence of killings, why is she not presenting it to the panel? If she was so desperate for asylum in any country, does she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country just to achieve her aim’’? he said
The minister appealed to countries that have made hasty judgments on the basis of fake news and disinformation emanating from the #EndSARS crisis to endeavor to seek and get the truth.”
