Senior Advocate of Nigeria and lawyer to Psquare, Festus Keyamo, has appealed to Nigerians to leave the wives of the artistes out of their ongoing disagreements.
Keyamo, via his official Twitter handle, released a statement clarifying the truth.
Keyamo talked about the video circulating online showing the Okoye’s using abusive language and threatening one another.
The SAN also exonerated his chambers in the release of the confidential documents proving the termination of the contract by Mr P. Keyamo further urged the public not to aggravate the already sensitive issue by dragging their wives into it adding that they had never interfered in any way.
He, However, confirmed that the brothers were genuinely having issues but with prayers, things would be straightened out.
In part the statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to the on-going feud between the Psquare brothers in online, print and electronic media.
“We have also been inundated with calls from the media to authenticate the correspondence Peter Okoye sent to our office, indicating his intention to terminate the contract between the brothers for various reasons and the online video showing a purported scuffle between the brothers in our Chambers.
“Firstly, while it is obvious that none of these materials were released from our Chambers, we are thoroughly saddened and embarrassed by these developments.
“As their close friends and lawyers over many years, we have done our very best to manage their differences over time and very prominent personalities have been invited in the past to intervene.
“We are well aware that we have a duty to keep the details of their disagreements confidential, so we shall say nothing here on the issues at stake.
“None of their wives is at fault. In fact, the wives have kept their respectable and dignified distances from all the issues involved. THEY HAVE NEVER INTERFERED in any way.
“We also want to state that whilst all the three brothers may have genuine grievances, nobody’s life is at risk. All the various incidents that happened in our Chambers (some as late at 12 midnight and 2am and one of which was captured in the online video) arose out of various meetings that were genuine attempts at resolving their differences.”
