Though some would swear they used to be bosom buddies, another socialite, Sunday Igboho has also denied knowing Ade Lawyer who is currently under investigations for murder.
Nigerian politician and businessman, Chief Sunday Adeyemo famously known as Sunday Igboho has distanced himself from all criminal acts and having any relationship with suspected assassin, Adeola Williams, famously known as Ade Lawyer.
Ade Lawyer was recently apprehended 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’.
Igboho states that he had no relationship with Ade Lawyer until a land dispute saga ensued between some ‘area boys’ and his friend; Prince Kazeem over the latter’s family land in Lagos.
“It was the land dispute that brought us together. That’s all. I hadn’t met him before until the land dispute saga and he has never run an errand for me,” he stated.
Narrating his encounter with Ade Lawyer, Mr Igboho said: “I can remember vividly that sometimes ago, I was at Apapa with my clearing agent, when I was called upon that some miscreants are disturbing my friend, Prince Kazeem on land boundary issues. I rushed to the place hoping that my presence would bring normalcy and Kazeem would leave there unharmed.
“Fortunately, the police were already at the disputed land before I got there.” He said. There was neither a fight nor any physical assault of any sort before they were invited to the police station for further interrogations.
According to him, “a particular NURTW official came with some area boys to protect Prince Kazeem from being harmed by the other group, and Ade Lawyer came with them.”
