Nana Oye sues Tony Lithur for $1.5m; accuses ex-husband of defamation


The divorce saga between former President John Dramani Mahama’s legal counsel, Tony Lithur, and his ex-wife, Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, has taken a new turn as Nana Oye Bampoe Addo seeks legal redress for what she considers a tarnishing of her image by Mr. Lithur.

Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, formerly known as Nana Oye Lithur, served as Minister for Gender, Children, and Social Protection under the Mahama administration.

She is demanding general damages of US$500,000.00 and exemplary damages of US$1 million, following the alleged malicious contents of the divorce petition filed by Mr. Lithur on May 2, 2018, to end their 27-year marriage.

According to Nana Oye Bampoe Addo, the contents of the divorce petition have caused her reputational damage, leading to hatred, ridicule, and public odium.

She refutes claims made in the petition, such as being lazy, irresponsible, adulterous, cruel, and violent, which she says have maliciously injured her image.

Specifically, she contests allegations of cruelty and violence towards their domestic staff, as well as claims of corruption related to the purchase of an investment property in South Africa. Nana Oye Bampoe Addo argues that these false claims have led to investigations by the Office of the Special Prosecutor and have caused her considerable distress and harm.

In response, she is seeking general damages for libel, exemplary damages, and a perpetual injunction restraining Mr. Lithur from further making defamatory statements. Additionally, she is demanding a retraction and apology to be published on various social media platforms and news websites.

The legal battle between Nana Oye Bampoe Addo and Tony Lithur highlights the complexities and challenges of divorce proceedings, especially when played out in the public eye.
