DJ Switch denies rumour of arrest in Lagos, threatens lawsuit



Obianuju Catherine Udeh, the disc jockey popularly known as DJ Switch, has refuted claims that she was arrested in Lagos.

 

There were rumours earlier on Thursday that Switch was arrested for alleged assault.

 

But in a lengthy post on X, Udeh said the reports were false. She also threatened to sue the rumour peddlers.

 

”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,” she wrote.

”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.”

 

DJ Switch has been in the public eye in the past year after she filmed the infamous shooting of unarmed protesters in Lekki on October 20, 2020.

 

She had also gone into hiding over alleged threats to her life.
