The Nigerian Army has come out to deny that it hunted DJ Switch over the shooting incident at Lekki tollgate during #EndSARS protests.

Brig. Gen. Ahmed Taiwo recently revealed that the allegations by the disc jockey were false and she is only chasing clout.

According to him, claims that the Army looked for the entertainer is far from the truth because Nigerian soldiers have bigger fishes to fry.

He added that the Army cannot be bothered chasing one or two people after the saga at Lekki tollgate, so the lies should just stop.

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

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

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

“I, personally, have met with not less than eight people who attended #EndSARS protests at Lekki on their own terms.”

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Nigerian Police Force unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi. Since 2012, SARS has come under controversy for being linked to acts of extortion, torture, framing and blackmail.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad was founded in 1992 by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda. The major reason SARS was formed was when Col. Rindam, a Nigerian Army Colonel was killed by police officers at a checkpoint in Lagos.

SARS is one of the 14 units in the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department which was established to detain, investigate and prosecute people involved in crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping and other forms of crimes.

During its formation the Special Anti-Robbery Squad was known to operate covertly. SARS operatives were not allowed to wear police uniform, publicly carry guns or have walkie-talkies. They were given unmarked vehicles with sometimes no license plates or private plate numbers during duty.
