Popular Nigeria disc jockey, Catherine Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch, has opened up on how the #EndSARS protest of 2020 changed her life for worse and for better.
The activist took to her verified Instagram page on Wednesday, which marked a year after the protest, to narrate how the movement changed her life.
The DJ gained more prominence last year when she took to her Instagram page to do a live coverage that showed protesters being shot at by personnel of the Nigerian army at the Lekki Toll Gate during the #EndSARS protest that rocked the nation last year.
While most Nigerians praised her for her braveness, the DJ has claimed that she is on the run from the Nigerian government.
