The personal assistant to singer Mr P, Charles Abi has confirmed that DJ Switch is safe and out of the country.
It would be recalled that the disc jockey made the headlines after she captured the shooting which occurred at Lekki Toll Gate in an Instagram live video on the 20th of October, 2020. Due to her involvement in the protests, DJ Switch revealed that she has been on the run after receiving multiple threats.
Switch reportedly traveled out of the country while speaking with the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament. Switch recounted the incident that led to the deaths of about a dozen protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and many still feared for her safety.
Charles has now confirmed that she is safe and out of Nigeria. However, he did not reveal where Switch is currently residing in the interview with Punch. He said: “We do not want to say anything at the moment and that is the truth. This is a matter of threat and we do not want to say anything at the moment. She had been getting a lot of threats and the truth is that she is not even in Nigeria at the moment and she is safe. We will not want to answer whether she is in Canada for now but she is not in the country and she is safe.
“I cannot tell you if DJ Switch testified at a Canadian parliament, but if you see that the Canadian parliament posted it, then she probably did it. I know that she has not posted anything and I remember that my boss told her not to post anything; but in due time, she will speak out.
“She got threats from every angle; she received death threats from every angle; so, she just had to leave. I am just going to say this because of her safety, we just have to keep things quiet low.”
