DJ Switch reportedly arrested in Lagos

A police source told Linda Ikeji Blog that the DJ visited a police station in Elemoro, Ajah, on Monday, April 15, to complain about a man who allegedly defrauded her and the man was arrested.

The source disclosed that DJ Switch was invited on Wednesday, April 17, to inquire from her the details of the incident, to decide whether the accused should be charged to court or released on bail, as it is against the law to detain an accused for more than 48 hours.

But the Disc Jockey and winner of X Factor, insisted the accused should make an apology, which would be recorded and shared on social media, but the man refused.

However, the police finding it hard to resolve the matter amicably, decided to take the case to court since both parties were not bulging.

The source further claimed that while officers were about to drive out with the accused to court, DJ Switch used her vehicle to block the entrance of the station and allegedly assaulted the female officers attached to the case, after which she was arrested.
