Lai Mohammed, on behalf of the Federal Government says DJ Switch (Obianuju Udeh by real name) is “a fraud and a front for divisive and destructive forces’’ that will soon be exposed as time goes on.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in Abuja on Thursday while delivering speech on the roles the Nigerian disc jockey (DJ) played on the alleged Lekki tollgate “massacre’’ of Oct. 21, 2020.
He claimed one of the major purveyors of circulating fake news is the DJ Switch in regards to the aftermath of #EndSARS protest as well during the protest.
He said: “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 suspect. 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’’?
Lai Mohammed then appealed to Nigerian to stop making hasty judgement regarding the ENDSARS protest.
