Linda Ikeji justifies taking Wizkid to the police

18 April 2016, 11:38

Lagos - Super blogger, Linda Ikeji  explains the reason why she took the bold step, of reporting Music star Wizkid, to the Commisioner of Police in Lagos State.

She said that Wizkid had issues with her but it did not stop  reporting stories relating to him.

She reported Wizkid because , violence against women and threat of violence against women is not okay.

“I reported this case to the authorities because I want our young men to know this is not okay. You should not raise your hands on a woman. You shouldn’t even threaten to raise your hands on a woman. Wizkid wrote that he would send his 16 year old cousin to beat the shit out of me. Letting Wizkid get away with it is basically telling our young men that this is okay…and it’s not!” she wrote on her blog.

She wondered why his endorsements had not been withdrawn after he went on a rant on Twitter and Instagram against Linda Ikeji.

The second reason she filed a police report is to encourage other women in similar situations to do same.

“My dear ladies, if a man threatens to puts hands on you, and you feel the threat is real, report to the authorities", she said.
