The Nigerian Army has denied going after Nigerian Disk Jockey, DJ Switch over the shooting incident at Lekki tollgate during #EndSARS protests.
Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo represented the Nigerian Army before the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Government to investigate the Lekki tollgate shooting.
The Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, said DJ Switch made the allegations of being hunted against the Army to chase clout.
He said, “Some people take delight in misrepresenting Nigeria, the armed forces, and particularly, the Nigerian Army to the international community and our fellow Nigerians. This, I believe, is done for pecuniary gains and to chase clout.
“Quite recently, a Nigerian, Catherine Udeh, also known as DJ Switch, claimed the Nigerian Army was looking for her. There is [This is] nothing further from the truth.
“My lord, we have bigger fish to fry, and that is how to stabilise Lagos. We can’t be bothered chasing one or two people. Where she got that from, I do not know.
“I, personally, have met with not less than eight people who attended #EndSARS protests at Lekki on their own terms.”
The Military General said an incident in which a mob killed someone, set the body on fire, and also discussed sharing the body parts prompted the governor to invite the army.
