Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji has taken to her Twitter account to appreciate popular Disc Jockey, DJ Switch for speaking out about the Lekki toll gate shooting on October 20.
Youths had taken to the streets in protest, to demand a permanent dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), as well as to seek an end to police brutality and extra-judicial killings.
On 20th of October, protesters under the EndSARS movement converged at the Lekki Toll Gate to press home their demands, but security agents who were deployed to disperse the crowd opened fire on them.
DJ Switch streamed the incident on her Instagram Live even as the shootings were going on.
International TV station, CNN after weeks of investigations into the incident, released its findings which further proved that the military authorities lied about some details it gave on account of that fateful night.
Switch was interviewed on CNN and she once again stuck to her eyewitness account about the shooting.
Reacting to Switch’s position, Genevieve praised her bravery.
“A brave queen. Thank you @dj_switchaholic. Silence is not hereditary. #EndSARS”
