Putting up to her Twitter account, popular Nigerian disc jockey, DJ Switch, condemned the action of the Police.
She wrote, “I am pleading with everyone today, celebrities & non-celebrities, influencers & non-influencers; the way we did #BlackOutTuesday for foreigners, let’s shout out #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality all thru! Flood your timelines… SOROSOKE!!! SPEAK!!!! SHOUT!!!!
“Wat did Mr. Macaroni do? Wat, did our other brothers and sisters do? What? Since we can’t match ur power, we r working seriously 2 lobby those u fear! I told u, it could be me or you! Hopefully, on d 17th that process begins #EndSARS #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria #EndPoliceBrutality. A government ‘quick’ to give explanations for herdsmen! A government so ‘ineffective’ to fight Boko Haram! But ‘slow’ and ‘effective’ for the youths. It may and most likely take time, but this is the generation that will stop you!”
