Socialites and philanthropists, Chief Adeyemo Sunday (a.k.a Sunday Igboho) and Amb. Dr Prince Kazeem Eletu Odibo, have reacted to the allegations made by the notorious killer, Adeola Williams, popularly known as Ade Lawyer.
Ade Lawyer had alleged while he was being paraded alongside former National Union Road of Transport Workers (NURTW) Chairman, Lagos State chapter, Alhaji Rafiu Akanni Olohunwa in connection with the murder of Ganiyu Ayinla, popularly known as Pinero, the Personal Assistant to the NURTW Chairman in Idumota, Azeez Lawal, known also as “Kunle Poly”.
Late Lawal was killed on January 23 during an attack on Kunle Poly in the Idumota area of Lagos Island and Ade Lawyer confessed during interrogation that he was contracted by Olohunwa to assassinate Kunle Poly.
In a viral video, Ade Lawyer also alleged he once worked for Prince Kazeem and Chief Sunday Igboho.
However, reacting to the allegation, Prince Kazeem, who just had a 2-in-1 celebration as he clocked 40 and launched his foundation recently, in an Instagram video said; “Nothing can shake me”
More so, in a press release which he personally signed and made available to the media, Prince Kazeem disclosed that he saw Ade Lawyer once when he came alongside some area boys during a dispute over a land boundary.
It read further: “It wasn’t even a physical fight. Nobody exchanged blows at all. It was just a verbal disagreement with the man who also claimed the (disputed) land belongs to his family. We were surrounded by area boys, some of whom always hail me anytime they came across me and as a kind gesture, I do give them money.
“So, this bearer (Ade Lawyer) was among them. He came with one NURTW official that day. While the argument was ongoing, the Police from the Ilasan Station at Lekki/Ajah came and invited us to their station. That was the first and the last time I met this fellow (Ade Lawyer)”, Prince Kazeem noted.
As for the land dispute, Prince Kazeem said: “We were transferred to Area J Command and both sides were asked to bring relevant documents which we did.
“In the end, the Area Commander instructed both parties to maintain peace and return to the status quo based on the Supreme Court judgment in favour of our family as the rightful owner of the land.”
Also, reacting to the allegation, Chief Sunday Igboho, in a statement made available to newsmen, said he has no business whatsoever with the serial killer, just as he corroborated the words of Prince Kazeem.
He said: “All that has been said by Prince Kazeem is nothing but the truth. The boy came along with some area boys when one man brought them to my friend, Prince Kazeem’s land to claim what does not belong to them. And we didn’t fight them. We were invited by the Police and were told to maintain status quo which was in our favour.
“With my weight in the society, the criminal is the least of all that could be within my contact. Those who know me and Prince Kazeem know us as Nigerians just fighting for a good cause and making efforts to have great impacts on the society,” he said.
