Astute legal practitioner, Tony Lithur, is set to divorce wife and former minister Nana Oye Lithur who he has been married to for 20 years over “violent and cruel” tendencies, according to court documents intercepted by Asempanews.com.
A petition filed by legal luminary, Tony Lithur at the High Court (Divorce and Matrimonial Division) said, “That you are 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? t 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.”
Per the court document, Mr. Lithur cites “cruel and violent traits” as his main reason for asking for the divorce.
“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.
