According to Lagos Police PRO, Dolapo Badmos, when the police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni called the duo, Wizkid denied he really wanted to harm Linda. He said his statement that he would send his 16-year-old cousin to beat up Linda, was written out of anger and emotion and there was nothing else to it.
Badmos said although the allegation was criminal in nature, it was resolved through Alternative Dispute resolution ( ADR ). She said when the police invited the parties, they agreed to resolve the matter out of court after Wizkid said he did not mean to threaten her life, rather it was an emotional outburst, with no motive to harm her.
She said the decision to resolve the matter was not because of their status in the society but due to genuine commitment by the parties to resolve the matter. She explained that ADR is a standard practice in the world applied to resolve crises due to the high rate of conflict all over the world.
