The Lagos State Police command has revealed how it settled the dispute between top blogger, Linda Ikeji and superstar pop star, Wizkid. The command made the revelation via its Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos. It can be recalled that Wizkid threatened to get Linda Ikeji beaten up after revealing he was going to send his cousin to beat her up which she didn’t find funny and reported to the Police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni.
The case was eventually resolved on April 18, 2016 at the commissioner’s office as both parties agreed to settle out of court.
The Lagos police PRO, Badmos said that ‘although Wizkid’s allegation was criminal in nature, it was resolved through Alternative Dispute resolution (ADR). They agreed to resolve the matter out of court after Wizkid said he did not mean to threaten her life, rather it was an emotional outburst, with no motive to harm her’.
She further stated that the decision to settle the matter was not because of their status in the society but due to genuine commitment by the parties to resolve the matter.
