In the 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.
He said: “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. At 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.”
Prince Kazeem, who recently celebrated his 40th birthday and launched a foundation, denied the allegations, stressing that the suspect has never worked for him.
