Court dissolves Paul Okoye, Anita’s marriage

Anita and her estranged husband, Paul Okoye, have been granted a divorce by the Abuja High Court.

Anita, who married Paul in 2014, listed her major grounds for divorce as infidelity, separation, an absent father, fraud, and trying times.

She asked for several of her husband’s mansions as well as a $20,000 monthly settlement.

Anita had previously stated in the divorce petition filed by her attorneys, Ojonimi Akpe and Okutepa J.S., at an Abuja High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, that she paid N10 million as part of a deal with her husband to be given space at the mall he had just finished in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

She, however, claimed Paul Okoye cheated her out of a deal.

The petition partly reads, “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.”

However, Anita decided to withdraw the claims and opt to settle following her alleged inability to prove all of the claims in her petition to the court.
