The on-going war between Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji and pop star, Wizkid has taken a new turn.
WIZKID continues to express his disdain for the blogger and never fails to take shots at her at any opportunity. Ikeji, who’s developed a thick skin, after years of multiple celeb spats, hasn’t let the singer’s attitude debar her from covering his misdemeanours.
She joined other blogs to report on his alleged second baby mama. But their beef got worse early April when Linda Ikeji’s blog alleged that Wizkid had been served a quit notice from his Lekki residence in Lagos.
Wizkid who was at Congo at the time took to social media to lash out at the blogger. He was uncouth in his rant, even threatening to arrange to have the blogger beaten.
‘If I ever see you, I’ll get my 16 year old cousin to beat the shit out of you’ he said.
Many pundits told THENETng at the time that there are legal implications should the blogger report to the police.
NET confirms that Ikeji has reported the threat to the Lagos State commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni.
A source with details told Nigerian Entertainment Today a summon has been issued to Wizkid, with an invitation letter sent to the Surulere office of his manager, Sunday Are.
‘He was instructed to show up today but he did not’, a source told us.
His manager, Sunday Are didn’t pick our calls or respond to our messages.
We also reached out to ASP Olorunfemi Shem of Lagos state police who promised to get back to us. He has not responded as at the time of publishing this report.
Linda Ikeji declined to comment.
According to a legal source, Section 323 of the criminal code states that ‘Any person who, knowing the contents thereof directly or indirectly causes any person to receive any writing threatening to kill any person is guilty of a felony, and is liable to imprisonment for 7 years’.
