I woke up to calls and texts – DJ Switch denies being arrested

Popular Nigerian Disc Jockey and rapper, Catherine Udeh professionally known as DJ Switch, has debunked reports of her getting arrested.

It was reported earlier that the Lagos state police command arrested for her obstructing a police officer on duty in the state. Switch was also said to have been taken to the Magistrate court in Eti-Osa, for arraignment.

DJ Switch reportedly arrested in Lagos

But in a swift reaction via her official Twitter page on Thursday she dismissed the reports as false representation of a situation, and demanded an apology from blogs

She wrote; “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 m3n 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!”
