Ajibola Oluyede, a lawyer to the late Buruji Kashamu, said his client withdrew the court case he instituted against Premier Lotto, a rival company owned by Kensington Adebutu, before his death.
Oluyede stated this in an interview on Thursday in reaction to a viral video depicting a conversation between Adebutu and Kashamu before the latter died the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) complications on 8 August, according to the Punch.
In the video recorded and made public by Adebutu, Kashamu, while on his sickbed, placed a phone call to Adebutu to beg for forgiveness.
Adebutu subsequently demanded that Kashamu withdraw the court case against his company as a sign of his apology.
Oluyede confirmed that Kashamu withdrew his lawsuit against Adebutu’s Premier Lotto and other rival lotto operators in the country.
The two businessmen from Ogun State were embroiled in a legal tussle on the proprietary right over ‘Ghana games.’
In a suit filed before the Federal High Court in Lagos, Kashamu’s Western Lotto accused Adebutu’s Premier Lotto and 22 other rival lotto firms of infringing on its trademark.
