Obianuju Catherine Udeh, aka DJ Switch made massive headlines globally following her bravery in covering the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria October 20 which saw the country’s military open fire on unarmed protesters at the #LekkiTollGate leading to loss of lives.
However that courageous act by the DJ has brought constant threat to her life, thankfully present reports say she is safe and out of the country.
The disc jockey who had sought asylum in Canada and had further narrated her ordeal at the Sub-committee on International Human Rights of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the Canadian parliament.
In a telephone conversation with The PUNCH, Peter Okoye’s personal assistant, Charles Abi, confirmed that the disc jockey was safe and had travelled out of Nigeria, details were however skipped.
Worthy of note is DJ Switch was signed on by the star artist in 2017.
“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.”
Mr P’s personal assistant, Abi, also revealed that his boss, Mr P has received threats as well.
