#LekkiMassacre: 15 People Killed, Soldiers Took Their Bodies Away — DJ Switch Says in Tearful Instagram Video
Nigerian Disc Jockey DJ Switch has claimed that at least 15 persons died in the Lekki Tollgate gun attack on peaceful protesters on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
There has been a controversy over the deaths as most of the persons said to have been killed have debunked the reports.
The Federal Government and the Nigerian military have refused to acknowledge the attack and continue to deny their involvement.
In a video shared on her Instagram page on Friday, the DJ said at least 15 persons were shot dead on the night while several others sustained injuries of varying degrees.
In a tearful Instagram video, she said at least 15 people were killed in the shootings and that she and other survivors took the victims’ bodies to the soldiers who took them away.
“Something I think about in hindsight that I wished we hadn’t done was that we carried dead bodies and dropped them at the feet of the soldiers when I asked their unit commander why they are killing us,” she said.
“I wished we didn’t do that because they ended up throwing the bodies into their vans.”
She also displayed spent bullets which she said she recovered from the scene of the shooting.
