Popular Nigerian Deejay, DJ Switch has come out to say that the soldiers that killed civilians at Lekki Toll Gate were acting on instruction from above.
She revealed this recently while appearing before the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament.
According to her, at least 7 persons were shot and the soldiers even threatened to shoot her, but she ran for her dear life.
She added what began as a protest against police brutality with the unit called SARS unfortunately degenerated into something she still cannot reconcile within her heart.
Her words, “On October 20, 2020, we had spirited Nigerians there united with one goal against police brutality against bad governance.
“What started out as a protest against police brutality with the unit called SARS unfortunately degenerated into something I still find hard to reconcile within my heart.
“We got information that the government wants to see me and six other people and I remember saying to them that we have no leader and if the government wanted to speak with us, he should kindly come to the toll gate and address Nigerians because we have been out for eleven days.”
“As we didn’t know where the gunshots were coming from and what they are about and then the lights went off.
“I remembered the military came in first, they stopped shooting at some point and I walked up to one of them and I asked why he was shooting at us and he said he had express order from above, and I was coming too close to him and if I come too close, it would be considered an attack on him and he would have to shoot.
“It didn’t take another ten minutes, the shooting started again. I remember seeing seven people that have been shot down and we were telling people on my live Instagram to help us call an ambulance.”
