Club goers in Ibadan are not happy with the news of the forceful eviction of GQ Lounge from its Awolowo address.
IBPulse can reliably report that GQ Lounge has been forcefullyevicted and its premises possessed. This happened on April 13. In a statement, the management of the establishment said they did not contravene any laws or contracts with the state or property owners.
We gathered that the forceful eviction was carried out based on a court order obtained by the owners of the property while a court case on settlement between GQ Lounge and the principal owners, as regards leasing of the property, GQ Lounge stated, is yet to be determined.
“We have resolved, however, to pursue the matter in court. We wish to state that though our business activities may have been hampered, we are working assiduously to ensure that we come back stronger to continue to promote the soaring entertainment profile of our beloved city.”
The management went on to describe the eviction as a temporary setback .
“We will release more information to the general public as time goes on. Thank you for your continued support for our brand.”
