The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Thursday said the celebrity who live-streamed, on Instagram, the Lekki shootings of October 20 will soon be exposed for spreading falsehood.
CNN verified photos and videos acquired from multiple eyewitnesses and protesters using timestamps and other data from the video files. A Lagos State police spokesman declined to comment because of an ongoing investigation.
CNN also included comments from army representative Brigadier Ahmed Taiwo, testifying before the tribunal.
The minister who was speaking via the state-owned media on the #EndSARS protest and its aftermath said DJ Switch was one of the purveyors of fake news and disinformation during and after the #EndSARS protest.
"Six soldiers and 37 policemen were killed all over the country during the crisis", Mohammed said.
He referred to previous reports done by CNN which lacked balance while insisting that the military fired blank bullets into the air and not at the crowd.
"As I said earlier, what started as a peaceful protest against police brutality quickly degenerated into incredible violence despite an immediate response to the demands by the government", he said.
Christiane Amanpour of CNN has questioned the federal government of Nigeria, asking for an explanation on what actually happened at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos State in October between security operatives and #EndSARS protesters.
"Haven't they hurt us enough?"
"The military has come out to say we never sought after her and to the best of my knowledge, the police never declared her wanted".
