A pack of court Sherrif’s from the Lagos High Court stormed the Omole home of P Square this morning to confiscate the property of the pair after a judgement that went against them.
Sources say the Sherrif’s who were not granted entry into the compound of the duo by the gateman later forced their way into the premises to carry out the court order but were still met with stiff resistance when they gained entry even after showing papers brought from the court.
Reports say the court ruled in favour of a client who claimed he invited P Square to perform at an event in Benin about 8 years ago paying them the sum of N1million.
On getting to Benin, the pair were told that the event had been postponed till the next day as the organisers pleaded with them to hang on till the next day.
But P Square refused to stay back in Benin to perform at the event and instead found their way back to Lagos.
After the incident, the client tried to reach P Square to get his money back but to no avail so he decided to take the matter to court.
Fortunately for the unnamed client, judgement was ruled in his favour by a court in Benin and he quickly moved to Lagos to enforce the court ruling which may have been passed in absentia as the twin brother weren’t aware of the ruling because no one represented them in court.
