P-Square’s lawyer, Barrister Somadina Eugene Okorie Esq. spoke to ENigeria Newspaper amid the controversy of Anita Okoy’s divorce, ENigeria Newspaper reports.
Anita Okoye, wife of Paul Okoye a member of P-Square music group, insists on getting a divorce from him due to allegations that he was an irresponsible parent who wasn’t always available to assist in raising their children, as well as other issues like infidelity, fraud, etc.
Anita accused her husband Paul Okoye, aka Rudeboy, of cheating on her with their cleaner Florence. She also publicly released evidence of his extramarital affairs with other women in hotels in Lagos and Asaba.
Anita Okoye cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce petition she filed in August 2021, but in a new court document obtained by ENigeria Newspaper, the mother of three disclosed evidence of her husband’s extramarital affairs with their housekeeper and other women in different hotels, as well as cheating her out of a total of N10 million.
A portion of the court document submitted by Anita’s lawyer, Ojonimi S. Apeh Esq, J.S Okutepa SAN and Company and obtained by ENigeria Newspaper, which was deposed by Anita’s sister, reads as follows: “That I know as a fact that the Respondent on 11th June, 2020, threw the Petitioner’s Sister and I out of the house after we discovered that he had started an illicit affair with one of the house helps by name Florence.
“That I know as a fact that while sending I and petitioner’s sister packing, the Respondent also boasted that the reason for his actions was to ensure that the Petitioner’s wings were clipped and that she had no one else to lean on.
“That I know as a fact that the Respondent has shown minimal interest in the upbringing of the children and rarely participates in discipline of the children.
“That I know as a fact that the Respondent has always been travelling on music tours and is barely at home and does not have time for family life.”
Anita also asserted that she had given her husband the sum of ten million naira (N10,000,000.00) after they came to an understanding that she would be given a portion to operate in the mall he built in Lekki Phase 1. But she claimed that Paul broke the agreement after receiving the money.
Barrister Somadina Eugene Okorie, counsel to the P-Square brothers and a close friend of the music duo, was unwilling to comment when ENigeria Newspaper reached him on Friday, July 2, 2022. He said he cannot comment on the matter for now until he obtains express permission from his client to do so.
When we prodded him further, making him realize reasons why his response is essential given the sensitivity and gravity of the allegations levied against his client he said, “I am exhausted, have suffered so much this week, I just want to look for somewhere to relax my head a little bit; I’ll get back to you later”.
Meanwhile as at the time of filing this report, ENigeria Newspaper understands that Anita and her kids are believed to be residing in the home of her husband in faraway United State of American.
According to information available to this newspaper, when the news originally broke in 2021, Paul Okoye – Rudeboy reportedly tried to reconcile with his wife but all efforts—including those made by family members—to arrange a settlement seem to have failed.
Family members, including Anita’s mother and her cousin Ekene Nwakuche reportedly intervened but she appeared determined. On the other hand, a source who spoke to us on the condition of anonymity claimed that “from all indications things had become irreparably terrible”.
