Reports that I assaulted a policeman, was arrested is false – DJ Switch

Popular disc jockey Obianuju Catherine Udeh, aka DJ Switch, has issued an ultimatum to blogs and news sites that reported that she was arrested in Lagos after assaulting a policeman.

Some blogs had reported early Thursday that the DJ was dragged to the magistrate court in Eti Osa over an alleged complaint of fraud and assault.

However, DJ Switch squashed the claims stating that the intention of such bloggers is to tarnish her name.

In a post made on her X account, the DJ said her lawyers have the screenshots of all blogs that posted the false news and would continue with plans to sue them if they fail to take down the posts.

”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.”
