Charly Boy, a Nigerian musician and activist, says DJ Switch, a disc jockey, has left President Muhammadu Buhari’s “repressive government” unsettled amid the dust trailing the shooting at Lekki, Lagos.

The entertainer has become a social media sensation since she filmed the shooting of unarmed #EndSARS protesters by the army at Lekki toll gate on October 20.

There have been controversies over the casualties after the shooting which continues to attract global attention.

Switch had claimed that at least 15 persons were shot dead on the night of the incident while several others sustained injuries of varying degrees.

But the Nigerian army has repeatedly denied using live rounds, insisting that its soldiers used blank bullets and shot only into the air.

Amid the controversies, the disc jockey had fled the country, alleging threats to her life by the army — a claim the military denied.

She has, however, insisted soldiers shot at protesters in series of interviews including with the Canadian parliament and CNN after the media outlet’s investigation into the matter.

Switch had also maintained her criticism of the federal government and Babajide Sanw0-Olu, governor of Lagos, over the alleged attempt to “cover-up the truth.”

On Thursday, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, had described the disc jockey as a “purveyor of fake news,” threatening to “expose” her soon.

Reacting to the multiple dramas that have ensued so far on Thursday, Charley Boy, described the DJ as a courageous lady who “has the dictatorship Nigerian government by the balls.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you, the gorgeous lady who has the dictatorship Nigerian government by the balls right now and she is squeezing extremely hard,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Her name is DJ Switch and boy, is she switching on the heat on the repressive government of Buhari.”
