#EndSARS: ‘A Brave Queen’ — Genevieve Nnaji hails DJ Switch
Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has hailed DJ Switch as a brave queen for standing by her claim that soldiers killed EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.
DJ Switch who made a Live Instagram video during the incident reiterated her claim when she spoke with CNN’s Becky Anderson.
According to her, the government knows the truth about the attack but have chosen to suppress it with conflicting stories.
She said, “I do not hold what the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria says to heart. Nigeria is a dictatorship with a democratic face. I think that is primarily to please the international community. It is our right to protest for the change that we demand. This government has used force from the beginning.
“They started with infiltrating a peaceful protest with things but that did not work. Then they moved to bring the military in. So, the same government that says that it has banned SARS for close to four years are saying that it wants to have a dialogue.
“The President has not even addressed the incident that happened at the toll gate, so I do not take his words to heart. They must show accountability.
“With no due respect, I actually challenge the governor of Lagos State to just say the truth. They know the truth and they have conflicting stories with each other. Nigerians have died and this is not a time to play games.
“Families are looking for their loved ones. To be honest with you in regards to me, I do not know how to feel because on one hand, I am grateful that I am alive today but on the other hand I don’t know if to say I am lucky because it seems that the others were not lucky.”
Reacting to the CNN interview, Genevieve Nnaji hailed DJ Switch for not keeping silent on the attack.
“A brave queen. Thank you @dj_switchaholic. Silence is not hereditary. #EndSARS,” the actress tweeted.
