Nigerians have again commended the popular Disc Jockey (DJ), DJ Switch who was live on her Instagram page to show the world what happened at the Lekki toll gate on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
It will be recalled that Nigeria witnessed several protests on EndSARS which was as a result of police brutality meted out to Nigerians, most especially the youths by a former special unit of the police called SARS.
On Tuesday, October 20, the Lagos State government placed a curfew on the state and residents and citizens alike were told to return back to their homes.
At the Lekki Toll gate, one of the venues for the #ENDSARS Protest, unarmed protesters were allegedly shot at by the Nigerian Military.
DJ Switch who was live at the Lekki Toll gate on her Instagram page revealed the happenings globally.
Dj Switch has recorded several commendedations thereafter from Nigerians as revelations on the Lekki shootings continue to make it to the public.
On Wednesday, a CNN investigation reported that the Nigerian army used live bullets on protesters during its intervention in the #EndSARS protests in Lekki.
Following the recent reports on the Lekki shootings, Nigerians have continued to view DJ Switch as national hero who revealed the happenings live on her Instagram page.
Here are some Twitter reactions on what Nigerians are sharing about DJ Switch:
Thank you Dj switch for all you did 20.10.20 am so grateful…trust me you will be remembered in my heart forever….💔😡 #LekkiMassaccre https://t.co/0ESF5grdSV @PondzJoe
Imagine they had “regulated” social media?
That DJ Switch’s video wouldn’t have made it out, it would have been shut down. Even without the regulation, a top official in the army said it was photoshopped
The truth would have remained hidden.
Thank God for the [email protected]_Doctor
Thank you, DJ Switch. Thank you for preventing a complete [email protected]_ucheoby
I don’t think we have fully grasped the significance of what DJ Switch did for us that night by going [email protected]
The fact that the Lagos state government, LCC and the Army all collaborated to ensure evidence did not survive shows that despite what they will have you believe, they are actually scared of evidence being [email protected]_
DJ Switch does not know what she did. An absolute LEGEND!
