Doyin Okupe tweeted; “Ditan Okupe is my son. He is a very brilliant young man. He went to King’s College, Lagos; Buckingham University, UK; and did a postgraduate (degree) in law at the London School of Economics. We both have had serious issues in the last five years. This may be his way of getting back at me. I wish him luck.”
“It is impossible to explain intricate and confounding family issues in a single tweet. Please refrain from making judgement on what you know nothing about. What is between Ditan and I will never be discussed publicly, even if it costs me my whole political career. I love him with my whole heart.”
“Keyamo is my friend and lawyer. He is still handling a case for me at the Supreme Court. He called me tonight on his acquaintance with Ditan, who also has been trying for months to get the contacts of people he considers my political foes, including Tinubu, Kashamu, OGD etc. For him, this is his finest hour.”
“Keyamo as my lawyer has not breached any ethics of his profession by using my son against me. This is politics, pure and simple. In this game, I am a master. Yoruba says. It is not the day a child abuses an Iroko tree that the tree falls on him. Tomorrow will surely come.”
