Lynxxx 1Nigerian hip hop artiste, and Glo ambassador, Chukie Edozie, aka Lynxxx, is facing litigation at Igbosere Magistrates’ court for allegedly beating up a UK-based Nigerian businessman, Richard Bennet.

Bennet is asking for N10m damages for assault and battery because Lynxxx and his crew reportedly caused body injuries to him (Bennet) in a fracas at a Lagos night club, Ntycee Lounge and Restaurant.

The claimant, who was said to own two bars in Nigeria and the UK, in his claims, explained that he had gone to Ntycee with his nephews to relax. He said it was while strolling around the club, that his drink spilled on a lady who allegedly slapped him and emptied the content of her glass cup on him.

Bennet said, “Edozie on learning what had happened, grabbed him(Bennet)  by the lapel, and later broke bottles and threatened to kill him if he did not apologize to the lady who happens to be his (Lynxxx) relation.”

The fracas led to the club being closed by the owners of the bar.

Bennet alleged that Edozie and his men waited at the gate, regrouped and forced themselves into the club where they “brutally assaulted him with several blows to the head and body.”

During the presentation of the case, none of the parties to the matter was in court, except the counsel for the claimant.

The matter was adjourned till July 2.
