Famous #EndSARS campaigner, DJ Switch arrested by the police in Lagos

Popular DJ Obianuju Catherine Udeh aka DJ Switch has been arrested by the police in Lagos and is currently being taken to the magistrate court in Eti Osa.

According to a police source who spoke to LIB, DJ Switch visited the police in Elemoro, Ajah on Monday, April 15 to complain about a man who allegedly defrauded her. According to the police, the man was arrested on the same day and has been in police custody.

The police source told LIB that DJ Switch was then invited yesterday April 17 to inquire from her what exactly she wanted, whether for the accused to be charged to court or for him to be released on bail as it is against the law to detain an accused for more than 48 hours.

The source alleged that DJ Switch insisted that the only thing she wants is for the accused to do an apology which she will record and then post online which the accused bluntly refused.

At this junction, the police then settled to take the matter to court since both parties were not bulging.

The police source alleged that while the officers were about to drive out with the accused to court, DJ Switch allegedly used her vehicle to block the entrance of the station and allegedly assaulted the female officers attached to the case. 

She was then arrested for obstructing police while on duty, resisting arrest as well as assaulting police officers. The accused was taken to the court and was remanded in prison custody.

DJ Switch is currently on her way to the Magistrate court in Eti-Osa where she will be arraigned for obstructing police officers while on duty and assaulting officers.

Recall in 2020 there was a report that Canada had granted asylum to the popular #EndSARS campaigner, DJ Switch, who livestreamed the Lekki shootings and seems to be now on the run following apparent government’s crackdowns on the demonstrators.

DJ Switch had earlier shared on social media how several threats on her life had triggered her decision to seek asylum in Canada.
