The Lagos state Police command has said they got it wrong with the information on the alleged arrest of popular Disc Jockey Obianuju Catherine Udeh, also known as DJ Switch.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, made this known via his X handle after the DJ had debunked the report.

According to him the arrested individual was DJ Commissioner Wysei and not DJ Switch as they’d earlier informed media organizations.

Hundeyin tweeted:

There is a mixup from our end. The arrested person is DJ Commissioner Wysei, not DJ Switch. Apologies for all the inconveniences to a few media outfits like Linda Ikeji, BBC and TVC that I gave confirmation this morning. Apologies to DJ Switch too.

Recall news had broke that the activist, famous for her actions during the 2020 EndSARS protests, was arrested after assaulting police officers and resisting arrest.

DJ Switch herself debunked the news, stating that she did not support violence against the police despite not being a fan of theirs.

She wrote via X:

Good morning all.
I was woken up by a barrage of calls and text this morning. I wondered why because I know today is not my birthday. Only to find that I, have been arrested .
One of the links that was sent to me alleged that I had assaulted the police. Now, while I am not a fan of many of our police men and women, I do not condone nor do I support violence against the police.
Our blogs have such an unhealthy appetite for traffic that they can’t even spend the transport fare it would cost them to go investigate and make certain of the news they share to the public. These false reporting is dangerous and negatively shapes narratives.
Many people want so badly to believe I am just like those I’ve fought against or believing that I have sacrificed all I have ever worked for just to bring down Nigeria. This is false.
That being said, my lawyers have screenshotted every blog they can find this false news and this is defamation of my character. These blogs have till end of day to take down this false news and kindly replace with a post correcting their mistake. I am not looking for cheap publicity, I hate clout chasing and I actually am not an ass because I was advised to sue immediately which would cost them all a lot. So please do the needful and let us learn. Thank you!
