Nigerian Dj, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, known as DJ Switch has described Information Minister Lai Mohammed as ‘an uninformed information minister.’
DAILY POST had reported that the Federal Government was threatening to take control of a foreign media organization, CNN, over their report into the alleged firing of End SARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tax site on October 20, 2020.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who made this known at a press conference in Abuja, described the report by foreign news media as “irresponsible journalism”.
The minister also threatened to reveal the true intent of Obianuju Catherine Udeh, known as DJ Switch, over her portrayal of the Lekki toll gate shooting.
According to him, “DJ Switch is a cheater who aims to destroy Nigeria’s image with fake news.”
Following the development, Mohhamed petitioned CNN to request an “immediate and thorough review of his report on the Lekki Toll Gate incident to determine its authenticity and compliance with basic journalism standards.”
He also accused the news that he had not tried to reach the federal government, claiming that he was displaying False Journalism.
Responding, Switch in a post through her Twitter account Tuesday slammed the minister.
According to her, the only truth about his name is Lai.
She also said it has not been easy for her since she was alive murdering the murder at the Lekki toll gate, adding that she would rather speak than remain silent.
“How can an information minister be so wrong.
“The only thing that’s believable about him is the name Lai.
“Unfortunately, man, the truth is very firm!
“Thank you all for your kind greetings and prayers. It wasn’t easy for me but talking needs to be more important than bullying, ”she said.
