The police in Lagos have apologised for a mix-up on the alleged arrest of the disc jockey popularly known as DJ Switch.


Reports circulated earlier on Thursday that Switch was arrested for alleged assault.

The DJ, however, denied the reports while threatening to sue the rumour peddlers.

”That being said, my lawyers have screenshotted every blog they can find this false news and this is defamation of my character,” a statement from Switch reads in part.


“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.”

In a short post via X, Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police spokesperson, admitted that there was a mixup leading to the “misleading” reports.


The police spokesperson said the arrested DJ was “Wysei, not Switch”.

Hundeyin also tendered an apology to DJ Switch and some news outlets which he had earlier given confirmation.

“There is a mixup from our end. Arrested person is DJ Commissioner Wysei not DJ Switch,” he wrote.

“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.”

In response, the disc jockey wrote: “Thank you! Apologies accepted”.

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.
