DJ Switch, a well-known disc jockey whose real name is Obianuju Catherine Udeh, has expressed sorrow over how the Igbo are treated in Lagos State.
In Lagos State, the Igbo were openly rejected and publicly prevented from voting in the presence of security forces.
The Igbo were chosen out of many other tribes living in Lagos State, and they were the ones who were rejected, abused, and threatened, the songwriter and musician questioned.
High levels of violence and intimidation tainted the 2023 Lagos State governor election.
Some of the attacks on voters and electoral materials were carried out right in front of the security personnel.
Before and during the polls thugs were used to threaten, create fears and force residents to either vote for a particular political party or not to bother casting their votes at all.
Video clips of police officers being compromised are flying around on social media. The police had even described as a mere joke the threat issued to non-indigenes of Lagos by the state’s Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
“I am really sorry to my Igbo brothers and sisters!” The Enugu-born DJ said
“Truly. You are not the only tribe in the SW but how you’ve all been demonized is so heartbreaking
“APC is a shame." Nigerian police are a shame. Nigeria is a shame. Shame… shame!
Stand strong everyone. Stand strong,” she wrote.
