Divorce saga: Now I can move on, says ex-football star


A former Ghanaian footballer, Odartey Lamptey, has won a lawsuit in which his wife claimed 50 percent  of his fortunes.
An Accra High Court ruled that Gloria Appiah (Lamptey ex-wife) committed ‘adultery’ when she gave birth to three children outside wedlock and subsequently nullified her request of being given half of her ex-husband’s wealth.
Justice Cecilia Don-Chebe Agbevey who presided over the case also ordered Lamptey’s estranged wife to vacate the footballer’s plush 7-bedroom apartment in East Legon within 30 days.
Lamptey who granted an interview after the ruling said he is grateful that all he had gathered through his toils for the past 21 years did not go in vain.
He said, “I thank God for taking me through this fight successfully because I didn’t know how far I could go. Though I’ve lost a few properties, I’m very content that at the end of this case, I have retained most of them and I’m still alive too.
“When I was informed that the three children were not mine, I know how I felt. Playing the role of a father to children I thought were mine for 21 years and realizing otherwise later, I nearly committed suicide. God gave me a renewed energy and courage to withstand these pains and today, I can say I have gotten over them all.
“And today, with the final judgment, I thank God that my properties, my school and others I have kept them. She can take the little awarded to her.
“Today the divorce has been granted and that burden that was on me is gone. Now, I’m a free and happy man, ready to start life again.”
The relationship between Odartey Lamptey and Gloria Lamptey went sour in 2013 after DNA results revealed that he was not the biological father of his three children after 20 years of marriage.
Lamptey has insisted he never asked his estranged wife to sleep with other men to get pregnant for him over claims he was ‘impotent’.
The ex-Ghana star now has two children with an actress  Ruweida Yakubu.
Lamptey owns the Golden Lions Soccer Academy and Glow Lamp International School.

Quranic Extract For the Ramadan Faithfuls



27. An-Naml (56-end)

28. Al-Qasas

29. Al-Ankaboot (1-45)


This Juz begins with the conclusion to Surah An-Naml. In these final verses we are asked to consider the signs of ALLAAH in HIS creation & acknowledge that some claim godship in the weak unlike ALLAAH Who is Omnipotent & knows all. The chapter ends with powerful themes of the afterlife; death before life, the blasting of the trumpet & the Last Day. In the end, the Prophet (SALLALLAAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) is commanded to serve ALLAAH & to preach the Qur’aan. In the next chapter, Al-Qasas (the Stories) we are told about Musa (ALAHYI SALLAM) - his birth, upbringing, exile, call, his struggle with Pharaoh & subsequent exodus, his ultimate triumph & destruction of the disbelievers. The main theme of the chapter is that of struggle, ALLAAH’S providential care & the evil end of those who are arrogant & spread corruption. The last chapter in this Juz is Al-Ankaboot (the Spider) a chapter that takes its name from the parable in its 41st verse in which the weakness of polytheism is likened to frailty of a spider web.


• That people can get so corrupt they detest the very presence of those who purify themselves

• The doubts of the pagans are repudiated & the Last Day depicted

• ALLAAH consoles the poor & weak believers stating that future is for them

• The story of Musa (ALAHYI SALLAM) & how he could find none to support him besides ALLAAH but what a wonderful supporter HE is!

• The story of Qarun & his being deceived by his wealth

• Just as Musa (ALAHYI SALLAM) was driven from his land only to return, so too would Muhammad (SALLALLAAHU ALAHYI WA SALLAM)

• The trials that one calling to ALLAAH will face: wealth, health, & this worldly life in general

• The stories of the previous nations show us that we should never feel confident that we are safe & so grow complacent.
