“I feel happy now because it’s been over seven years of legal battle but I thank God that finally, her appeal against me has been thrown out and the court has ordered her to evacuate from my mansion. It has not been easy at all, but I thank The Lord Almighty for a battle well fought. I thank my lawyers, Kizito Beyuo & Iris K. Aggrey-Orleans for a great job," said the footballer turned coach.
“It’s my prayer that nobody experience this kind of situation because it can easily ruin your life,” he added.
His relentless ex-wife is not giving up on the property as she appealed again, which was rejected by the court, having already had a first one thrown out a year ago.
