Bizarre Story: Obaro Ibru Allegedly Assaults Louise Priddy, CEO Bacchus Nightclub?

This is a rather bizarre and highly disturbing story reported by Maestro Media. If untrue, then needless to say, it amounts to defamation/libel. If true, then Obaro really needs to get some help.


What could have made a grown up, married man with kids bite a woman and especially going to the extent of causing a fraction and even biting? That’s the question on the minds of everyone now. Why would someone who is a top management executive of a company even resort to messing up or fighting in public beats everyone’s imagination.

According to our findings, this particular incidence is one of many of similar ones that Obaro had been involved in before. What has only happened in this case is that his victim this time around is not a nobody or someone that can be easily cowed. So what really happened?

Obaro IbruAccording to the gist, Obaro Ibru & Louise Priddy were both at an occasion at Cool Off, a joint somewhere on Ozumba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island, Lagos when fun loving Obaro got up from his own circle of friends and table to where Louise & a couple of friends were seated, Obaro apparently very high (high on what? That’s another story for another day) tried to pull up Louise’s friend from her seat to come dance with him; this is someone he didn’t know from Adam. The shocked one who couldn’t comprehend the aggression or what was going on, was advised to ignore him as he was high.

Before anyone could say Jack Robinson, Obaro apparently went after Louise and all hell was let loose. The aftermath of the whole mess was a fractured right arm and a bloodied lips where Obaro had bitten Louise’s lips. Most didn’t know the extent of the damage, including the victim until she ran to the toilet and she noticed she was bleeding from the mouth for at least 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, the world fighting champion also known as Mr. Obaro Ibru was immediately carried out of the joint by the bouncers who would have wrecked havoc on him had they not being restrained, because he was still hell bent on causing more havoc. We heard that, thereafter the whole mess, after apparently coming back to his senses and upon realizing what mess he had gotten himself to, was now apologetic!!! He has since being in hiding, only communicating with people via phones. All the while his retinue of friends and his brother Oboden and even his wife have been going about a begging. . . .” Full story on Maestro media.
