NigeriaTrends | CELEBRITY NEWS — Lagos based lawyer Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN), the long-term lawyer to Nigerian music icons Psquare, have come out to say his law firm was not involved in the leakage of Psquare fight video that showed their elder brother Jude, and the twins—Peter and Paul fighting in his chambers.
Keyamo, in the statement released, admitted that the feuding brothers had on some occasions in the past, had meetings in his chambers as late as 12 midnight and 2AM., one of which he said was captured in the video circulating online—which occurred in 2016.
While appealing to Nigerians to grant the Okoye family the privacy, prayers and support they need “at these trying times,” Keyamo, who is their lawyer, said efforts were under way to reconcile the duo.
Psquare Lawyer Statement
The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to the ongoing 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 was 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.
“But since the disagreement is now in the public domain, and our name has been dragged into the fray, we wish to appeal to members of the public to refrain from jumping into uninformed conclusions about this feud.”
Psquare Wives Involvement in Feud
The lawyer also said none of the wives of Peter and Paul Okoye has anything to do with Psquare feud, noting that “the wives (Lola and Anita) have kept their respectable and dignified distances from all the issues involved.”
According to their lawyer:
“None of these talented brothers is at fault. None of them is also wholly justified and correct in their individual positions.
“We also wish to state categorically that, contrary to widely held opinions, 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.
When Psquare Fight Video Happened
The lawyer further added that the Psquare fight video is not current, that the event happened in 2016 when things started heating up between the Psquare brothers.
“We also want to state that while 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.
“Whatever was said by all of them that were provocative were done in the heat of passion, emotion and anger.
“In fact, the incident in the video circulating online happened sometime around May 2016. After all those arguments, we all still sat down and signed agreements and we were all happy.”
