Obianuju Catherine Udeh, professionally known as DJ Switch, has advised News outlets and bloggers to always investigate properly and run things they know for sure or have verified.
DJ Switch who made headlines after she went LIVE on her Instagram page to show the shootings that occurred at the Lekki Toll Gate #EndSARS protest on October 20, 2020, gave the advice on her Instastories.
She said anything contrary to that ‘sincerely hurts and sometimes causes serious complications for people in “real life”’.
DJ Switch also refuted reports that she sought asylum in Canada.
It was widely reported that she had fled the country and has taken asylum in Canada after the protest.
She wrote “To the people who know me so well, I don’t really share except my arts, crafts and comments on social issues that affect us all.
“But let me say this… News outlets and bloggers, I know traffic is the game but when you don’t investigate properly and run things that you don’t know for sure or have verified, you sincerely hurt and sometimes cause serious complications for people in “real life”.
“I have been cooked up in a house for months, I never got asylum in Canada. I did not step foot in Canada. I did not even speak with those who claim they spoke with me on the issue.
“Anyways, I will leave it there. By the way, it is now that I’m travelling… And it is not to Canada! Love”.
