Paul Okoye, Anita, part ways as court dissolves marriage

126

Weeks after back and forth on the dissolution tussle of their union, an Abuja High Court sitting in Maitama has granted Anita and her estranged husband, Paul Okoye, divorce.

Persecondnews recalls that Paul has been flaunting his new girlfriend on social media platforms and has told those who cared to listen that she is the new love of his life.

They have both been living separately since the commencement of their court case seeking the dissolution of their marriage.

His ex-wife, Anita had claimed that cheating, separation, being an absentee- father, fraud, and difficult experiences were her major reasons for seeking a divorce.

She also requested a monthly settlement of $20,000 and a number of her husband’s mansions.

Earlier in her divorce petition signed by her lawyer, Mr. Ojonimi Akpe and Mr. Okutepa J.S of a Federal High Court in Maitama in the Federal Capital Territory, Anita had claimed that she contributed N10 million as an agreement with her husband that she would be granted space at the mall he had just completed in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. h

She, however, accused Okoye of cheating her out of a deal.

The petition reads in part: “That I know as a fact that the petitioner founded a company called TannkCo in 2019.

“That the petitioner and the respondent agreed to build a mall where TannkCo would have its main offices, and the petitioner contributed N10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Naira) for the purchase of the land and the building of the mall.

“That I know as a fact that the respondent, upon completion of the mall, reneged on the agreement and failed to give TannkCo a space in the mall.”

Anita, however, decided to withdraw the claims and opted to settle out-of-court following alleged inability to prove all the claims in her petition before the court.
