Why DJ Switch Fled To Canada

0 9

Popular disc jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, fondly referred to as DJ Switch, is safe and out of Nigeria.

DJ Switch, known for her prowess on the turntables, saw herself helping to remove bullets from peaceful protesters who were shot at Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, according to her Instagram Live feed.

In 2017, singer, Peter Okoye signed DJ Switch to become his disc jockey.

Furthermore, on October 23, 2020, Peter Okoye was one of the few people that DJ Switch thanked via her most recent post on Instagram for getting her out of a terrible situation.

She said, “I want to thank a few people who, at the risk of their lives, came to get me. My life was being threatened for speaking up.”

However, earlier today, the news made round that the disc jockey sought out asylum in Canada.

It was further stated that she narrated her ordeal at the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament.

In a telephone conversation with The PUNCH, Peter Okoye’s personal assistant, Charles Abi, confirmed that the disc jockey was safe and had travelled out of Nigeria.

Abi, however, did not disclose where DJ Switch is residing. He said, “We do not want to say anything at the moment and that is the truth. This is a matter of threat and we do not want to say anything at the moment. She had been getting a lot of threats and the truth is that she is not even in Nigeria at the moment and she is safe. We will not want to answer whether she is in Canada for now but she is not in the country and she is safe.

He continued, “I cannot tell you if DJ Switch testified at a Canadian parliament, but if you see that the Canadian parliament posted it, then she probably did it. I know that she has not posted anything and I remember that my boss told her not to post anything; but in due time, she will speak out.

“She got threats from every angle; she received death threats from every angle; so, she just had to leave. I am just going to say this because of her safety, we just have to keep things quiet low.”

Mr P’s personal assistant, Abi, also revealed that his boss, Mr P has received threats as well.

Strong indications emerged yesterday that Canada has granted asylum to DJ Switch, the #EndSARS protester who streamed live the shooting that happened at Lekki Toll gate in Lagos State.

DJ Switch sought the asylum after several attempts on her life after the killing of peaceful #EndSARS protesters in Lekki.

The sensational disc jockey revealed that soldiers shot at peaceful #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos, and stated that they were sent to the protest ground on orders from above.

She made this known while speaking with the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament.

Switch recounted the incident that led to the deaths of about a dozen protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.

She noted that the military opened fire on the protesters after creating a three-formation line. Debunking claims by the Nigerian Army that soldiers fired blank bullets into the air.

It was believed that she told the Canadian parliament that she counted not less than seven persons shot, adding that one of the soldiers threatened to shoot her.

She added that the first gunshot was heard from behind, adding that it was chaotic as people were running in different directions so as not to be hit by a bullet until it was announced that protesters should lie on the floor.

“I remembered the military came in first, they stopped shooting at some point and I walked up to one of them and I asked why he was shooting at us and he said he had express order from above, and I was coming too close to him and if I come too close, it would be considered an attack on him and he would have to shoot.

“It didn’t take another ten minutes, the shooting started again. I remember seeing seven people that have been shot down and we were telling people on my live Instagram to help us call an ambulance.”

“I have been on the move because they have been after my life. The first threat came in, I thought it was a joke, I sincerely thought it was a joke. Just as I was leaving, I got a phone call that I should leave the vicinity because there are military men at the hospital.

“I had to abandon my home, I moved from people’s home, and then just to get out of Nigeria. I am still travelling, and I am not done with my trip,” she said.
