Nigerian female disc jockey (DJ), Obianuju Catherine Udeh, otherwise called DJ Switch, has said that soldiers who shot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos told her they were acting on “orders from above.”
The entertainer spoke during a teleconference with the sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament.
The nearly three hours session, which held on Friday, was to address the dust surrounding the shooting of peaceful protesters at Lekki toll gate on October 20.
During the meeting, DJ Switch recalled approaching one of the men in military uniform over why they were shooting at them.
“I remembered the military came in first, they stopped shooting at some point and I walked up to one of them and asked why he was shooting at us and he said he had express order from above,” she said.
