#LekkiMassacre: “Trust Me, You Will Be Remembered In Our Hearts Forever”
Disc jockey, DJ Switch has been hailed on social media following the revelation of an investigative report by CNN on the shooting that happened at Lekki toll gate last month.
Nigerians took to Twitter to praise DJ Switch for showing bravery and bringing the incident to limelight.
Recall that DJ Switch showed bravery on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, by remaining at the Lekki Tollgate to capture the shooting of peaceful protesters by military officers on her Instagram Live.
The 2013 Glo X Factor winner sought asylum in Canada after reportedly receiving threats from the authorities for daring to record the tragic incident.
In honor of her courageous act, Twitter users have written remarkable things about her on Wednesday, November 18.
“Thank you Dj Switch for all you did 20.10.20 am so grateful …. trust me you will be remembered in my heart forever …#LekkiMasscre“, a tweet reads.

DJ switch IG video on lekki massacre was the string of evidence that led to a massive loophole that political lies can’t cover.. she really put her life on the line for the truth to prevail. A HERO

Imagine they had “regulated” social media?
That DJ Switch’s video wouldn’t have made it out, it would have been shut down. Even without the regulation, a top official in the army said it was photoshopped
The truth would have remained hidden.
Thank God for the Internet.

I don’t think we have fully grasped the significance of what DJ Switch did for us that night by going Live.

Evidence shows that live rounds were fired on peaceful protesters in Lagos, Nigeria – despite the army’s continued claims that they fired in the air and only used blanks. See the CNN investigation that refutes authorities’ shifting claims. https://t.co/4t51fFwP5x

Lol. My wife went to close her account at Access Bank today. Her letter to close the account stated the freezing of the End Sars accounts as the reason. The begging was apparently on another level, the branch manager even followed her to her car. Was really happy to hear that.

Hello @CNNAfrica can you make the #LekkiMassaccre investigation video downloadable? You can watermark it. The video needs to be shared on Facebook, WhatsApp and other platforms so more Nigerians can see how peaceful #EndSARS protesters were murdered by the govt

“ My hand is broken, my leg is broken, the police are still sh00ting at us. If I don’t make it thr the night. Let it be known that I d!ed fighting for our freedom”
But some of you had the audacity to say the #LekkiMassaccre is fake news and never happened.
