Lynxx Slam With N10 Million Law Suit

Chukie Edozie, popularly known as Lynxx has been summoned to the Igbosere Magistrates court for an alleged physical attack on a Richard Bennet a.k.a Pope. According to Pope, incidence happened some months back at a club when  Lynxxx battered him for spilling drinks on a lady, the lady in question happens to be related to Lynxx somehow.

Despite the fact that the lady slapped him across the face and spilled her own drink on his head, Lynxx and his friends were not satisfied. On learning what had happened, Lynxx grabbed the man, broke a bottle and threatened to kill him if he did not apologize to the lady.

Bennet is requesting for a 10 million fine for the assault and injuries sustained during the scuffle.The counsel for the claimant, Mrs. Tina Wils-Ubong, has served Lynxx his papers inviting him to court but he has neither accepted nor acknowledged it. When the incidence happened and Mr Bennet threatened to sue, Lynxx bragged that nothing can happen.

For every coin, there are two sides. Insiders close to Lynxx said no such thing happened. According to the source, Pope made aggressive advances towards Nikki and when she turned him down, he slapped her. Lynxx approached him and asked him to apologize but he refused. An eye witness said;

Lynxx and his crew left the club, and stood outside for about two hours. All they wanted was for the guy to apologize to their friend. They asked the club owner to bring Pope outside so they could settle but the guy refused to come out and refused to apologise to the girl and Lynxxx wasn’t going to take someone hitting and harassing a female in his presence. As far as he’s concerned there’s no excuse for ever hitting a woman and so he and his crew went back into the club to confront the guy but were pushed back by the bouncers who were protecting the guy. During the scuffle, Lynxx knocked over a table, a glass fell and Lynxx cut his arm in the process. No one was stabbed and Lynxx never hit anyone.”

Lynxx’s management sent out a statement, saying;

This is a direct response to the accusations in various media regarding an alleged stabbing and assault by Lynxx at Club Entyce in Lagos last Friday 8th March when he attended Praiz’s birthday celebrations. At no time did Lynxx assault or stab anyone.
It is unfortunate that instead of verifying the accuracy and extent of the incident, some media outlets have chosen to propagate unfounded rumours and speculations. Contrary to the rumours circulating the web, it is important that we communicate the following:
  • Lynxx did not stab or assault any customer at n-tyce Club on 8th march 2013.
  • No stabbing or assault occurred on 8th March 2013 at n-tyce Club.
  • At no point did Lynxx arm himself with a bottle or any other weapon.
  • Lynxx was at the event with only 3 members of Syndik8
The incident in question occurred when “Pope” slapped and sexually harassed a young female who is Lynxx’s friend and his manager’s cousin, which led to an outcry by many present, including celebrities such as Banky W, Uti and Lynxx. Seeing as the young female was in tears and distraught they requested that Pope apologise directly to her, which they believed was only right given the severity of his actions. They were however disappointed when no apology was made and even worse when the club staff did not appear to take the situation seriously.

The allegations have become a police matter and Lynxx has made plans to sue Pope for defamation of character.
