According to eyewitnesses, Oritsefemi came to the club with some of his friends to relax and sat at a section where the owner of the club, Shina Peller, and his guests were meant to sit.
According to Oristefemi he was trying to defend Sound Sultan when the club's bouncers attacked him and in a bid to defend himself smash a glass cup on one of the bouncers.
The management of Quilox have however released a statement on the altercation of music star Oritsefemi at the night club on Saturday, November 12.
According to the statement, the artiste spent time in police custody before being released on bail. Oritsfemi who pretended to be dead during the scene of the fight is said to be expected back at the police station on Tuesday.
Read Quilox’s account of the issue below
At about 2am on Saturday, 13th of Nov. 2016, Oritsefemi came into Quilox without prior reservations or table bookings. Tables are allocated to customers who have made prior paid table bookings in advance of their arrival except such customer is a patron or member of the club. . .
However, Oritsefemi who did not fall into any of the categories above approached a patron’s table-of-six, and pleaded to be accommodated, with the understanding that other guests of the said patron were still been expected. . .
In a surprising turn of events, Oristsemi who was drinking from the patrons bottle, attempted to sit 8 of his guests at the table, the surprised patron strongly rejected such effrontery and invited the bouncer guarding the floor to intervene. . .
The bouncer politely approached Oritsefemi and told him the patrons guests were still being expected, but Oristefemi, in a fit of unprovoked rage, slapped the bouncer then proceeded to breaking a glass in his hand and stabing him in the eye. . .
The scene quickly became rowdy as other customers rushed to the table and confronted the artiste for his violent behavior, our security team quickly stepped in to salvage the situation by carrying Oristefemi out of the club. . . Oristefemi faced by an enraged crowd outside and perhaps realizing the gravity of his offense pretended to collapse. The artiste and the bouncer were subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital . .
The bouncer affected later pressed charges at Bar Beach police station, where Oritsefemi accepted his offense and pleaded for mercy, he was granted bail at 12pm on the 13th of Nov. and advised to report back to the station on Tues. 15th of Nov. 2016. . . We were hesitant to release a press statement as several well meaning people have attempted to intercede on behalf of the artiste, but after his malicious and grossly false account of the events that occurred, it is only fair that we defend the integrity and ethos of our organization.
