Nigerian disc jockey, Iwuagwu Ebere aka Commissioner DJ Wysei, has been remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Center until May 8 over an alleged assault on police officers.

Ebere had 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 disclosed that DJ Wysei was invited on Wednesday, April 17 to know if she wanted the suspect 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.

It was alleged that the DJ insisted that the only thing she wanted was for the accused to make an apology which she would record and then post online, but the accused bluntly refused. The police then settled to take the matter to court since both parties were not bulging.

It was revealed that while the officers were about to drive out with the accused to court, the DJ allegedly used her vehicle to block the entrance of the station and 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 remanded in prison custody.

DJ Wysei was taken to the Magistrate court in Eti-Osa where she was arraigned for allegedly obstructing police officers while on duty and assaulting officers.

Giving an update, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the DJ has been remanded in prison.

His post reads;

‘’For assaulting police officers, resisting arrest and obstructing police officers in the discharge of their duties, Iwuagwu Ebere aged 29, popularly known as Commissioner DJ Wysei has been remanded by the court in Kirikiri correctional facility till May 8, 2024 while her bouncers who aided and abetted her were remanded in Ikoyi correctional facility.

Not to worry, this is confirmed news.''
