A businessman in Anambra State, Bobby Uzochukwu, on Friday attacked Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, on the premises of the Anambra State Federal High Court, Awka, accusing him of being a sellout by accepting to serve as the spokesperson for President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation in the 2019 general elections.
The SAN was recently appointed the Director of Strategic Communications for Buhari’s 2019 presidential campaigns.
Keyamo, who was the counsel for a defendant in a suit on the August 6 killings at St. Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Anambra State, was addressing the press at the court complex when the businessman verbally attacked him, calling him unprintable names. The situation abruptly ended his interview with journalists as he entered his car and left. Still fuming, Uzochukwu said he would have done worst things if the SAN had stayed back.
He said, “I know Keyamo. He’s my friend. I was surprised when I heard that he accepted to serve Buhari. This is a betrayal of the highest order. We thought Keyamo would replace the late Gani Fawehinmi; but see what he has done, consenting to serve somebody who has no interest of the people at heart. “I would have done more things to him this afternoon, but as you can see, he ran away.”
