Popular Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, better known as DJ Switch, has replied to taunts from Information minister Lai Mohammed accusing him of representing a government that thrives on lies and marshaling evil against the very people it was elected to serve.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Lai Mohammed had at a press conference earlier on Wednesday insisted that no one was killed in the Lekki Tollgate invasion by soldiers on October 20, 2020.
The minister had gone ahead to accuse Amnesty International, CNN, and “a runaway DJ” of spreading falsehood.
“With the preponderance of evidence against any massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate on Oct. 20th, 2020, we are once again reiterating what we said one year ago, that: The military did not shoot at protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on Oct. 20th, 2020, and there was no massacre at the toll gate.
“The only ‘massacre’ recorded was in the social media, hence there were neither bodies nor blood. Amnesty International, CNN, a runaway DJ, and others like them should apologize for misleading the world that there was a massacre at the Lekki Toll Gate and for portraying the Nigerian military, police and other security agencies in bad light.”
DJ Switch without mentioning Lai Mohammed by name in her reply via Instagram said:
On this day, last year 20.10.20 we were filled with hopes that young Nigerians took a solid stand. Through all the government’s antics, lies, counter-protesters and thugs that were sent to attack us… we stood our ground! When the Nigerian government exhausted all their poorly planned tactics… they unleashed nothing short of EVIL on its citizens. I’ve not been able to talk today… and I cannot imagine what others who had it worse, feel! I am so proud of our young generation of leaders and our celebrities that have shown great leadership. I also must say, it is not a one day affair… this is a fight for the very fabric of our nation!
My life changed on this day… for worse! But, I also believe it changed for good! I now know what it means to need something so bad… and that need for me is a better Nigeria! To the youths who risked it all today in order to remember 20.10.20, are in every bit Superman/Superwoman!
Thanks to @davido for an anthem to remember!
