The last may have finally been heard of the rift between the Okoye brothers of Psquare (Peter and Paul) and Jude, the group’s manager, as the brothers have finally called it quit with one another.
The long drawn battle of quarrel and settlement is traced to the marriage of Peter to his baby mama, Lola, who is not of the same tribe with Peter.
According to LIB, Peter, the one half of the group, raised speculation recently that all was not well with him and his twin brother/business partner – Paul when he referred to himself as Mr. P (his personal brand name). He also dropped ‘cryptic messages’ on Instagram, one of it addressing how no one’s opinion should matter about something that makes another happy.
In response, the other half, Paul, countered by saying via his own Instagram page, how the birth of his twins was making some unnamed person jealous and restless. He accused the person of having sleepless nights, and also supposedly called out Peter’s wife Lola-saying; “Only a woman can come where there’s peace and destroy it. Try me this time, I swear Nyash go open. You will know that blood is thicker and stronger than juju.”
Paul invariably made reference to the fact that Lola’s inclusion into the family tree was more harmful than beneficial, and as a result, has not hidden his aversion to the woman, who had had children for his brother. Jude, has also towed the line, leaving Peter in the equilibrium.
LIB further confirmed that Peter has sent a termination letter to their lawyer, Festus Keyamo (SAN), demanding a termination of the agreement between them.
In the letter, he defends his decision by making serious allegations against his twin Paul and older brother/group manager Jude.
Peter accused his older brother Jude of threatening to kill him and shoot his wife, Lola. He claimed that the incident happened in the presence of Paul and former first lady of Cross River State, Mrs. Imoke. Jude allegedly also threatened to bring a coffin for him (Peter) if he ever comes near his house.
Peter insists that he has had enough of the drama and wants out of the Psquare group and contract. Mr. P, as he now calls himself, stated that he loves his brothers and their families, and he wishes them the very best in their careers. However he cannot betray his wife and kids as they are very important to him.
According to Peter, “Paul is no longer willing to co-operate with me, even going as far as cancelling our planned US tour this year without informing me and have exhausted all options to make it work.”
He also accused Paul of slandering his wife and children with lies on social media, and alleged that they’ve now been receiving threatening messages.
Lola, who has been accused of scattering a once peaceful family, is yet to make her position known in the entire crisis.
