Former Ghana international, Nii Odartey Lamptey has sworn to evict his ex-wife Gloria Appiah from his mansion at East Legon, Accra after her appeal was dismissed.
Odartey Lamptey said this On Thursday, July 15, 2021, when his ex-wife’s second appeal case to own his plush East Legon residence was thrown out by the Court of Appeal.
Gloria Appiah served the court a writ to claim ownership of the seven-bedroom apartment as part of her alimony after their divorce.
However, her appeal was once again not successful.
In the aftermath of the ruling, Odartey Lamptey, who won the U-20 World Cup with the Black Satellites said he will not relent until he evicts his ex-wife from the apartment.
“We will do whatever now to move her from the house, as soon as possible,” the former Aston Villa star told Kasapa FM, as quoted by the Graphic Online.
Odartey Lamptey and his ex-wife got divorced after DNA results proved the ex-footballer was not the biological father of their three children.
The matter led to the collapse of their 20-year marriage, but disagreements between the couple overcompensation to Miss Appiah led to a protracted legal tussle.
Two years ago, the Appeal’s Court rejected her claim to the said mansion but she filed another case with the hope that the decision would be overturned.
