Paul Okoye free to remarry as court dissolves marriage to Anita

Singer Paul Okoye and his wife Anita are officially divorced.

An Abuja High court sitting in Maitama granted the ex- couple divorce a year after Anita’s petition.

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

Recall that in 2021, Anita had petitioned a court to dissolve their marriage on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. She also accused Paul of cheating, separation, being an absent father, fraud, and difficult experiences.

In her petition signed by her lawyer, Ojonimi Akpe and Okutepa J.S at an Abuja High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, Anita 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. However, the mother of three accused Paul 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.”

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

The court in its judgment granted joint custody of the children to the parties on October 20, 2022.

The duo got married in 2014 after dating for 10 years. They have three children.

The divorce is coming days after Paul flaunted his new lover, Ifeoma Ivy.
