DJ Switch Responds to Alleged Arrest, See Details

On Thursday, April 18, 2024, rumours swirled on social media that DJ Switch, also known as Obianuju Catherine Udeh, had been arrested.

However, the DJ swiftly debunked these claims, stating they were entirely false, as spotted by Beyond Boders.

Taking to social media, DJ Switch clarified that she had not been detained by the police, as reported by a gossip blog.

She refuted allegations of assaulting a female police officer, emphasizing her stance against violence towards law enforcement.

“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,” she stated.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, later clarified that the misinformation stemmed from confusion with another individual, DJ Commissioner Wysei, not DJ Switch.

Expressing her frustration with the proliferation of false news, DJ Switch hinted at potential legal action against the blogs responsible for spreading the rumours.

She criticized the trend of sensationalized reporting and urged media outlets to verify information before sharing it with the public.

“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,” she asserted.

Demanding corrections from the implicated blogs, DJ Switch emphasized the importance of responsible journalism, urging them to retract the false information promptly.

“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,” she urged.
