DJ Switch, the Nigerian disc jockey who went to Instagram Live during the shooting of protesters at the Lekki toll gate, eventually broke the silence after the incident.


In a new video, DJ Switch gave a thorough account of what happened that night, showing that it wasn’t just the soldiers who opened fire on them.

She also said that the greatest mistake she made was to keep the dead bodies of the demonstrators at the feet of the Nigerian soldiers.

In her words:

“I just want to clear a few things that I’ve been seeing online. To our leaders, I urge you please do not minimize the suffering of families.

Do not insult the grief of Nigerians, do not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Do not insult the pain that families are facing. People were falling left and right.

“Yes there were soldiers there. Another part that people are not really talking about. The police also came, the SARS people we’re talking about also came minutes after the soldiers left.

They were tear gassing. It’s like cotonou pepper. Our coconut head generation. They will run and they will come back.

“They switched off the lights and it was pitch black. While the soldiers were running around and picking their shells, we were running around and picking their shelves too. The police and SARS were also there, aiming and shooting. Who takes life bullets to a protest? Who does that?”
