The Nigerian Army has debunked reports that it set up a manhunt for Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch.

Giving his testimony before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Saturday, the Commander of the 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Brigadier General Ahmed Taiwo, stated that the claims were “further from the truth”.

Following the shootings that happened at the Lekki Tollgate on October 20, it had been widely reported that DJ Switch was being hunted by security agencies allegedly for streaming the incident live on Instagram.

During her live stream at the scene of the incident which immediately went viral at the time, many injured persons could be seen, as some protesters tried to extract bullets from bleeding people after the men in military uniform had opened fire.

It was also widely reported by some eyewitnesses that several had been killed and the security officers were clearing up the bodies – claims which the military immediately dismissed as fake news.

The incident happened hours after the Lagos State Government declared a 24-hour curfew as part of efforts to stop the violence which had broken out in some parts of the state by criminal elements who have been hijacking the peaceful protests.
