Paul Okoye and Anita have been granted a divorce by the Abuja High Court.
Anita, who wedded Paul in 2014, gave several reasons for wanting a divorce, including infidelity, separation from her husband, being a single mother, fraud, and trying times.
She asked for a $20,000 monthly payment as well as some of her husband’s estates.
Anita had earlier stated that she paid N10 million as part of an agreement with her husband to be given space at the mall he had just finished in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, in the divorce petition signed by her attorney, Ojonimi Akpe and Okutepa J.S. at an Abuja High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama.
But she asserted that Paul Okoye had duped her out of a bargain.
The petition partly read, “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, chose to drop the allegations and settle instead after allegedly failing to support each one of them in her court case.
On October 20, 2022, the court issued a decision granting the parties shared custody of the kids.
