After joining the peaceful protests that turned bloody at the now infamous Lekki toll gate, DJ Switch has shared her experience in a live video on Instagram.
The video, she said, was to clarify the misconceptions that have begun spreading following the massacre of peaceful protesters on the 20th of October.
She told of the attack by the military and then the police (SARS) and described the dreadful shootings and how she narrowly escaped being shot.
“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?”
