How We Ended The War Between Linda Ikeji And Wizkid – Police

The Nigerian police have come out to reveal how they have possibly ended the rift between superstar singer Wizkid and mega blogger Linda Ikeji.

The police claimed they used Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) a form of justice dispensation that involves dialogue between two or more parties involved in a suit.

The Singer had threatened Linda Ikeji, stating that he’d get his 16-year-old brother to beat the blogger up. Linda didn’t take this lightly and promtly dragged Wizkid to the police.

According to Lagos Police PRO, Dolapo Badmos, when the police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni  called the feuding celebrities, Wizkid denied he really wanted to harm Linda.

He said his statement about his brother beating Linda up, was written out of anger and emotion and there was nothing else to it.

While Wizkid’s outburst was criminal in nature, the use of ADR has made litigation redundant.

Badmos said that the matter has been settled and both parties were satisfied with the outcome. She also said that the decision to resolve the matter was not because of their status in the society but duo to genuine commitment by the parties to resolve the matter and put it behind them.

She said the parties were satisfied with how  CP Fatai Owoseni  handled the matter and forged  peace between them.
