29-year-old Jimenez said during an interview with TUDN, that he is happy at this present club but a move could still happen in future.

  • General unhappy with Sanwo-Olu for denying involvement in Lekki toll-gate incident
  • Nigerian Army not searching for DJ Switch

The Commander of 81 Military Intelligence Brigade, Victoria Island, Lagos, Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo, has disclosed that the Nigerian Army was unhappy after the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, denied inviting the military on October 20, when the soldiers shot at the Lekki toll-gate where #EndSARS protesters were gathered.

The Brig. Gen. said this on Saturday, in his testimony before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the Lekki toll-gate incident.

Brig. Gen. Taiwo added that inviting the military was the best decision the Lagos State governor could have taken since the #EndSARS protest dipped the state into anarchy.

“I spoke with the governor and said the Army was unhappy that he said he did not ask for Army’s intervention but I am sure that after you watched everything (video footages), you saw he had more than enough grounds to ask for Army’s intervention; perhaps it was the way everything went,” he said.

In earlier reports, Lagos State governor had denied inviting the military to the Lekki toll-gate on October 20, describing the incident as “forces beyond my control” were responsible for the incident.

But in subsequent reports, the Army Headquarters said in a statement that the Lagos State government invited the soldiers to get involve and the soldiers acted within the rules of engagement.

The Lagos governor has been under fire since the incident at the Lekki toll gate which has been condemned by local and international civil rights organisations.

Nigerian Army not searching for DJ Switch

Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo also denied the spreading rumors that the army are searching for popular Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch.

He said this during his testimony before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry probing the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll-gate on October 20.

The General said:

“Some people take delight in misrepresenting Nigeria and particularly the Nigerian Army to the international community and our fellow Nigerians. This, I believe is done for pecuniary gains.

Quite recently, a Nigerian, Catherine Udeh, also known as DJ Switch, claimed the Nigerian Army was looking for her. There is nothing further than the truth.

My Lord, we have bigger fish to fry; and that is how to stabilize Lagos. We can’t be bothered chasing one or two people. Where she got that from, I do not know.”

There are now reports and claims that DJ Switch has sought asylum outside the country after she claimed that her life was being threatened following the Lekki toll-gate incident.

Niger state governor, Abubakar Bello, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
