In Murphy's e-mail, he wrote "... I would like to sincerely apologize to Dr Larry Izamoje and the Brila family for whatever embarrassment my regrettable actions and inactions might have caused them personally and corporately”.

He further wrote "To err is human, to forgive is Divine. I am indeed sorry. Please accept my sincere apologies."

In Sean Amadi's resignation he wrote "And as a true son, like the proverbial prodigal son, I will not hesitate to call on you whenever the need arises. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity God gave me to work, learn and grow within the Brila family…"

In a response to Murphy's e-mail, Brila FM stated that both resignations are not in accordance with the company's employee handbook.

"For a resignation, the company requires 30 days advance notice or payment of one month's salary in lieu of notice. Where not followed, BBS may report same to the employee's new employer and/or the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and other government agencies" stated Brila FM in both e-mails.

In the reply to Murphy's resignation, Brila FM stated: "We also wish to remind you of your separate existing agreement with the company dated 22/08/2014 for which a car loan was granted."
