After several exchanges of flames on social media, Linda Ikeji has come out to reveal why she reported popular music act Wizkid to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police in a lengthy post on her blog.
According to Ikeji, she reported the matter to the police because Wizkid publicly threatened her and because she wanted to set an example for other women in similar situations.
While the blogger claimed she’s been a fan of Wizkid and had no dislike for him contrary to some online comments making the rounds, she said she noticed Wizkid passed snide remarks on her about a year ago.
The current squabble started when Linda Ikeji published a story that Wizkid was given a quit notice from his Lekki home.
‘When I reported that he was served quit notice at his Lekki home, I stated fact and I didn’t write it out of malice. It’s not every day you get exclusive stories…and I’m sure any other blogger who got the story first would also have published it. So, there was no beef, I was just doing my job. A day or so after I wrote this story, Wizkid went on my Instagram page to call me names and lied that I slept with some director of his … which I have said before is 1000% lies! But the insult and lies is not why the police is now involved.
‘Here’s the thing; You can insult me, insult my family, call me any names you like, even lie that I slept with your forefathers … but don’t threaten me. If you threaten me, I will act!
She disclosed that some comments that said she reported Wizkid to police because she was afraid of him was wrong.
‘No, my darlings, I am not afraid of Wizkid,’ she wrote, ‘Though I do not take his threats lightly.’
Urging young boys to pay attention, she continued: ‘You see, violence against women and threat of violence against women is not okay. Threatening harm to someone in a public space is a criminal act in every country of the world, including Nigeria. I bet some of you didn’t know that, yeah? You cannot publicly threaten someone with harm. You will only get away with it if your victim doesn’t report to the authorities. If they do, you will have a case with the police and I promise you, the police take these things seriously.

  1. Hopefully Wizkid would have learnt his lesson. You don’t threaten people (male or female) with harm and think there are no consequences. Our so called celebrities should know better and behave maturely as they are seen as role models. The Nigeria Police did a good job in settling the matter amicably.
