THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – Yesterday, Tuesday, September 26, 2017, Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and P Square’s lawyer, released a press statement via his official Twitter handle to bring clarity to the disagreements between the duo group singers, Peter and Paul, popularly known as P Square, report says.
Keyamo appealed to Nigerians to stop making speculations that the wives of the singers are the cause of the disagreements in order not to escalate the issue. He claimed the wives had not interfered in any way.
He also talked about the video that surfaced online, where Peter, along with Paul and Jude were arguing violently with one another in his chamber.
He agreed that the brothers were having issues but assured that with prayers things will work out.
The press statement released by Keyamo 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.’
