“Soldiers weren't the only ones that shot at us” - DJ Switch shares fresh details on the Lekki shooting (Video)

DJ Switch, the Nigerian Disc Jockey who went on Instagram Live during the shooting of protesters at Lekki toll gate, has finally broken silence following the incident.

In a new video, DJ Switch gave a detailed account of what happened that night, as she revealed that it was not only soldiers that opened fire at them.

She also said that the biggest mistake she made was keeping the dead bodies of protesters at the feet of the Nigerian soldiers.

“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?”
