Lawyer And Husband of former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Tony Lithur has filed for divorce from his wife Nana Oye Lithur. The Lawyer for ex-president John Mahama has demanded divorce from his wife of 20-years.
According to documents signed by O.K Osarfo Buabeng of Aseawuo Chambers and Co, Mr. Lithur, said that one of the main reasons for seeking divorce is the violent nature of his wife.
Tony Lithur filed for a divorce from the former Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection on May 2, 2018, in the Divorce and Matrimonial Division of the Accra High Court.
“When the parties settled down to marriage, petitioner began to notice some unnerving character traits of the Respondent. While petitioner was aware Respondent was aggressive in approach to many things, nothing prepared him for what he later discovered of cruel and instinctively violent traits. She consistently exhibited physical violence and cruelty against every person that has ever lived with the parties, either as household staff or relative,” the petition said.
The petition also said that Nana Oye Lithur is “required within 8 days after service hereof upon you. Inclusive of the day service to enter on appearance either in person or by solicitor at the Divorce Registry of the High Court, Accra in the Greater Accra Region of the Republic of Ghana should you think? It is to do so and thereafter to answer this petition and that in default of your so doing, the Court will proceed to hear the petition and pronounce judgement your absence notwithstanding.”
