A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mr. Festus Keyamo, has stated that none of the talented Psquare brothers is at fault or wholly justified and correct in their individual positions.
In his reaction to the on-going feud between the Psquarebrothers in online, print and electronic media, Keyamo said in a statement yesterday that none of these materials were released from his chambers, adding that his law firm was saddened and embarrassed by these developments.
According to him, he has been inundated with calls from the media to authenticate the correspondence Peter Okoye sent to his office, indicating his intention to terminate the contract between the brothers for various reasons.
He also noted the online video showing a purported scuffle between the brothers in his chambers.
Keyamo stated that as their close friends and lawyers over many years, his firm has done its very best to manage their differences over time, adding that very prominent personalities have also been invited in the past to intervene.
Â â€œWe 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. 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,â€ Keyamo explained.
â€œWe also want to state that whilst all the three brothers may have genuine grievances, nobodyâ€™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,â€ Keyamo added.
He appealed to Nigerians to grant the Okoye family the privacy, prayers and support that they need at these trying times, stressing that he has also appealed to all of them not to grant further interviews so as not to escalate the issues further.
