It became obvious as at Yesterday, that DJ Switch had been granted asylum in Canada when she had to flee for her life, being the #EndSARS protester who streamed live videos of the shooting that took place at Lekki Toll gate in Lagos State.

DJ Switch said she sought asylum after several attempts were made on her life in the wake of the killing of peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki.

The sensational disc jockey revealed this while speaking with the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament that, soldiers had shot at peaceful #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, in Lagos, and one of the soldiers had informed her they were sent to the protest ground on orders from above.

Switch recounted the incident that led to the death of about a dozen protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.

She noted that the military opened fire on the protesters after creating a three-formation line as she debunked claims by the Nigerian Army that soldiers fired blank bullets into the air.

She had told the Canadian parliament that she counted not less than seven persons shot, adding that one of the soldiers threatened to shoot her.

She added that the first gunshot was heard from behind, and the situation became chaotic as people were running in different directions to avoid being hit by a bullet until it was announced that protesters should lie on the floor.

“I remembered the military came in first, they stopped shooting at some point and I walked up to one of them and I asked why he was shooting at us and he said he had express order from above, and I was coming too close to him and if I come too close, it would be considered an attack on him and he would have to shoot. It didn’t take another ten minutes, the shooting started again. I remember seeing seven people that have been shot down and we were telling people on my live Instagram to help us call an ambulance. I have been on the move because they have been after my life. The first threat came in, I thought it was a joke, I sincerely thought it was a joke. Just as I was leaving, I got a phone call that I should leave the vicinity because there are military men at the hospital. I had to abandon my home, I moved from people’s home, and then just to get out of Nigeria. I am still travelling, and I am not done with my trip”.
