Official: I am annulling my marriage not divorcing; Asamoah Gyan breaks silence

Asamoah Gyan Only Married His Wife Gifty

Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has finally broken his silence about the discourse over his marriage which has been in the news and public domain within the past week.

Gyan has admitted that his marriage is on the rocks but clarified that the process that is ongoing at the Accra High Court is not a petition for divorce but an annulment process.

What’s the Legal Difference Between Annulment and Divorce? 

There are two ways to legally end a marriage – annulment and divorce. An annulment is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage between a man and a woman. Annulling a marriage is as though it is completely erased – legally, it declares that the marriage never technically existed and was never valid.

A divorce, or legal dissolution of a marriage, is the ending of a valid marriage between a man and a woman returning both parties to single status with the ability to remarry.

An annulment case can be initiated by either the husband or the wife in the marriage. The party initiating the annulment must prove that he or she has the grounds to do so and if it can be proven, the marriage will be considered null and void by the court. The following is a list of common grounds for annulment and a short explanation of each point:bigamy, forced consent, fraud, marriage prohibited by law, mental illness, mental incapacity, inability to consummate marriage, underage marriage, adultery, desertion and physical/emotional abuse.

He also cautioned media outlets and members of the public against the misinformation being peddled about his marriage.

A statement signed by his lawyer Mr Edwin Kusi Appiah and made exclusively available to Graphic Online today (November 2, 2018) said, “Our client has noted the level of misinformation as well as the veiled and sometimes open attempt to discredit him, his family and or his friends and therefore we write for and on behalf of Mr Asamoah Gyan on matters that have come to his attention because they have been largely publicised and talked about within the media space across the country.”

Background 

There has been much talk about the Ghanaian international footballer and Turkey-based Kayserispor attacker in the Ghanaian media space throughout this week that he has sought a divorce from his wife who he married over the past thirteen years and had also asked that a DNA test be ran to determine the real father or otherwise of his children.

Statement 

The statement said: “Our client has no interest in discussing his marriage in public but the only correction he wishes to make on the foregoing is that the process that is ongoing at an Accra High Court is not a petition for divorce but an annulment process.”

The statement, therefore, asked the various media houses to be careful about what they publish on the subject in order that the children at the centre of the issue are not stressed.

It further stated that “much as our clients has no interest in discussing his marriage in public, he will hold any person, media or otherwise, to strict account on any or all things that are published about him or his children which are untrue or unpalatable.”

“For all those sections of the media and faceless outlets that have begun some sort of vendetta against our client and his ilk, please consider this letter as one, before action. If you feel inclined to test our clients resolve, then prepare yourself to do as much in the court of law,” the statement added.

Well-wishers 

The statement also expressed gratitude to all of Gyan’s well-wishers urging them to desist from commenting about his marriage.

“To those with good intentions and loyal fans of our clients, to persons who on their own begun an effort to redeem our client’s name, our client expresses his sincere gratitude but will plead nonetheless for them to stop any publications of what is, or not about our client’s marriage.”

WATCH VIDEOS: Lead Investigator of Anas’ Tiger Eye PI allegedly sh0t D£AD in Madina

Published

on

An investigator with Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye PI has allegedly been shot dead by gunmen in Madina.

The investigator, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, was notably exposed by Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong in the aftermath of the #Number12 exposé on corruption in Ghana football.

He was reportedly killed by two gunmen on a motorbike who shot into the car he was driving.

Anas, in a message on Facebook announced the death, saying Ahmed was hit three times; twice in the chest and once in the neck following which he died on the spot.

This is the third of such an incident in which an individual has been shot and killed by unknown assailants where nothing was taken from the deceased.

The most recent case was the killing of the Public Affairs Manager of the Tema Port, who was found stabbed and killed in her bedroom last Sunday.

In a war of words with the investigative journalist in July 2018, Mr. Agyapong went on a show on the TV station he owns, the Madina-based Net 2 TV, and urged residents to beat up Ahmed whenever they saw him.

A photo of Ahmed was also revealed on the show. Citi News sources say he was the lead investigator of the Tiger Eye PI team in the Number 12 exposure on corruption in Ghana football.

He is reported to be the investigator who arranged the meeting with former GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi in Ghana and abroad.

But no link has been drawn between the MPs call to violence and the Wednesday evening murder.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in a video on his Facebook page, presented the announcement of his colleague’s murder within the context of Mr. Agyapong urging residents of Madina to go after Ahmed.

The journalist has also spoken to Graphic Online about the incident

“He was just shot and killed, nothing was taken from him”, another member of the Anas’ team told Graphic Online.

The police is however yet to comment on the matter, although his remains have been deposited at the Police Hospital.

Mr. Agyapong has been criticised for inciting violence against Anas and his team.

The MP accused the investigator of being corrupt and evil in the wake of his probe into Ghana football.

He also said Anas deserved to be hanged for his purported corrupt deeds.

Reporters Without Borders came out to say it was alarmed by threats to the life of Anas.

The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) at the time also called for 24-hour protection for Anas.
