When Nigerians began the slang “wahala no de finish”, they knew exactly what they were saying.

Imagine scrolling through a social media feed on your phone, and boom, you see a news about your own arrest.

Lagos Police Apologizes Over Reports Of DJ Switch’s Arrest
Benjamin Hundeyin

That was the exact situation Nigerian female Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, better known as DJ Switch found herself.

It all started on Thursday morning when reports alleging that DJ Switch was arrested emerged.

It was said that the DJ was arrested for allegedly assaulting and obstructing police officers on duty.

The Report

DJ Switch was said to have reported a man who defrauded her to the police, demanding a recorded apology that must be published on social media, but the accused refused.


However, the police decided to take the matter to court since both parties were not bulging.

Switch did not waste any time in speaking out.

She debunked the report in a post via her X handle, describing it as false.

It is always good to speak out sometimes. If DJ Switch had kept mute, the misinformation would have continued to spread.


However, after she made her observation, the police went back to their books.

A Mix-up

It was then that the police discovered that they had made a huge mistake.


Now, the Lagos State Police Spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, has apologised for the misinformation.

In a terse statement on X, Hundeyin, who had spoken with some media outlets about the development, said there was a mix-up from their end.

He wrote: “There is a mixup from our end. Arrested person is DJ Commissioner Wysei not DJ Switch.

“Apologies for all inconveniences to a few media outfits like Lindaikeji, BBC and TVC that I gave confirmation this morning. Apologies to DJ Switch too”.
