Nigerian DJ, DJ Switch who stream lived the Lekki tollgate when security agents opened fire on End SARS protesters on Tuesday October 20, has now share her experience.
In a video she posted on her Instagrm page, DJ Switch said the military aimed at endsars protesters as they fired gunshots adding that SARS officers came in after the military had left and also attacked them.
Switch said she and others present counted over 15 bodies, her words:
”I just want to clear a few things that I have 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 pains the families are facing.
People were falling left and right. Yes there were soldiers there. Another part that people are not talking about is that the police also came. The SARS people we are talking about, they also came, some maybe 40-45 minutes after the soldiers left.
We were teargassed. The teargass was like Cotonou pepper mixed with acid. We were running. We would run and we would come back and the only thing we fought with was our flags. We would sit on the floor and we would raise or hands up, raising our flags and singing the national anthem. That was all we had.
They put off the lights. Even if there was no power in that axis, there was always light at the tollgate. There was no lights. The street lights were off. It was pitch black.”
