A High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja FCT has today granted Anita, wife to Paul Okoye of Psquare, and her husband divorce.
Anita in her claim told the court that she has suffered from absentee husband and father, cheating, fraud, and difficult experience as her complaint against her erstwhile husband as reasons for approaching the court for the dissolution of the marriage. She demanded that the husband should be giving her $20,000 as alimony and some number of his mansion to be forfeited to her. Contained in her petition filed through her lawyer, Ojonimi Akpe and Okutepa J.S at the Federal High Court Maitama in Abuja,
Anita informed the court 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. However, she accused Paul Okoye of cheating her out of a deal.
The petitioning party reads, “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.”
However, Anita could not prove to the court beyond reasonable doubt that she actually partook in the said claim which made the court strike it out.
Meanwhile, the court in its judgment granted joint custody of the children to the parties on October 20, 2022.
