The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this at a press conference in Abuja today when he addressed lingering issues regarding the #EndSARS protests for police reform that rocked the nation last month.
According to him the event of October 20, 2020, as a “massacre without bodies”, insisted that contrary to DJ Switch’s claims, not a single body has been produced or a single-family has come out to claim their family member was killed at the Lekki tollgate.
He said, “One of the purveyors of fake news was one DJ Switch, which real name is Obianuju Catherine Udeh, even though she claimed authentic evidence of mass killings. Surprisingly, instead of presenting whatever evidence she may have, she chose to escape from the country on the claim that her life was in danger. In danger for who?
“Her conduct thus becomes suspect. Who is she fronting for? What is her real motive? Who are her sponsors? If she has any evidence, why is she not presenting such evidence to the panel? Since she was very desperate for asylum in any country, did she have to resort to blatant falsehood to tarnish the image of the country?
“In the fullness of time, this lady will be exposed for who she is, a fraud, a front for divisive and destructive forces.
“The military has come out to say we never sought after her, and to the best of my knowledge, the police never declared her wanted.
“At this juncture, we want to appeal to countries that have made faulty judgements on the basis of fake news and disinformation emanating from #EndSARS crisis to endeavour to seek and find the truth.” He concluded.
