Ghanaian social media users are hounding former Black Star player Nii Odartey Lamptey’s ex-wife Gloria Appiah for “witchcraft.”
Gloria Appiah is being crucified for chasing the ex Aston Villa striker for a mansion after their divorce.
For the second time in a row, the Court of Appeal threw out an appeal against Nii Odartey Lamptey, filed by his ex-wife to own her ex-husband’s seven-bedroom mansion at East Legon.
In 2020, the Court of Appeal threw out a similar appeal filed by Gloria against the head coach of Elmina Sharks to get the same mansion.
After their divorce, she was compensated although a DNA test showed that Lamptey did not father the kids he was raising with Gloria.
It is for this reason that Ghanaians are flaying Gloria.
Below are some of the comments;
Odartey Lamptey after the court proceedings said “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.”
In 2013, reports emerged that DNA tests had uncovered the fact that the couple’s three children were not indeed fathered by the former World’s best juvenile player.
The impasse emanated from when Gloria wanted Nii Odartey Lamptey to send ‘their’ first daughter abroad to further her studies at a cost of £26,000 a year for three years.
Nii Odartey Lamptey then objected, citing the fact that the expense was too much and recommending that his daughter schools in Ghana for her University education.
Gloria was reportedly incensed by her husband’s stance and filed for divorce.
Nii Lamptey initially agreed to the divorce but delayed in his response because he reportedly suspected his wife of alleged infidelity. The former midfielder, who represented Ghana at 1992, 1994, and 1996 African Nations Cup tournaments, secretly took samples from the three children and did a DNA test, which reportedly revealed that none of the three girls were fathered by him.
Gloria demanded 50% of Nii Odartey Lamptey’s estate and other properties which he hotly disputed by asking the High Court to allow the DNA results to be entered in evidence.
