An Appeal Court in Accra has reportedly thrown out the case by ex-wife of Ghanaian footballer, Nii Odartey Lamptey to own his seven-bedroom East Legon mansion.
Following the dissolution of their marriage in June 2017, a High Court Judge, Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey ordered the ex-wife of Nii Odartey Lamptey, Gloria to vacate the footballer’s seven-bedroom mansion at East Legon.
The judge ordered Odartey to be settle his wife with GHC200,000, a car and Odartey Lamptey’s house at Dome.
But Gloria, who disagrees with the court’s decision filed an appeal, requesting for the 7-bedroom East Legon mansion instead.
However, the appeal court again threw away her request to own the former Aston Villa and Black Stars striker’s plush residence as part of her alimony.
Speaking in an interview with Kasapa FM’s reporter Alexander Anyankwaa after the court proceedings, Mr Odartey had this to say when asked about the ruling:
“it’s been eight years of litigation but I am grateful to God for always being there for me. Few people survive in this kind of situation but thank Him I am alive and kicking, I will also want to use this opportunity to thank each and everyone who supported me throughout this battle.”
