Can "of" substitute "with"?

The two witnesses were close friends with Ms Fang and she had told them about Ong before, but they did not know him personally.

They have a slightly different meaning, but they are used interchangeably. Either one is fine.


I think it will be of Ms Fang’s if ‘of’ is to be used.
