The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has brokered peace between the warring duo of blogger, Linda Ikeji and popular musician, Ayo Balogun, also known as Wizkid.

Owoseni was said to have waded into the feud after the blogger had petitioned the command over an alleged threat to beat her up made by the musician on social media.

Using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), both factions thrashed out the issues of the alleged threat to life and left in peace.

This is contrary to claims that Balogun would soon be arrested by the operatives of the state command on the orders of the CP.

The musician was said to have threatened to send his 16-year-old cousin to beat her up over a story the blogger published on her blog weeks ago.

The blogger had published that the musician was evicted from his home over inability to pay the rent, a story the musician is yet to debunk.

Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, said peace has been brokered.

She said, “Indeed the state police command received a petition of threat to life from Linda Ikeji against Ayo Balogun.

“But the CP has waded into the issue between Wizkid and Linda Ikeji. Alternative dispute resolution was used and the parties left in peace.”
