The 8 year old marriage between Vivi, the daughter of
defunct Oceanic Bank CEO, Cecilia Ibru and her husband,
Aleksander Stankov, has been dissolved by the court,
Encomium magazine, reports.
The high court of Imo state presided over by
Honorable Justice Ngozi Opara severed severed the
marital vows that existed between the two once-
upon-a-time lover after Aleksander approached the
court to seek for the dissolution of his marriage to
Vivi who is the mother of his three children.
For sometime now, Vivi and Aleksander have been
staying apart with Aleks accusing his wife of refusal
to play the dutiful and humble wife. No one took them
serious at the initial stage until the period Vivi moved
out of their matrimonial home with the couple's three
children. All entries from Family and friends to
reconcile the two parties didn't work as their dream
of a beautiful future together came crashing down."
Vivi however is not taking the divorce issue likely.
Immediately, she got notice her marriage has been
dissolved at the instance of her husband, she went to court
to obtain a restraining order bearing her estranged
husband from coming close to the children. Her prayers
were reportedly granted at the Principal Registry of the
Family Division in London. Her claim was Aleks is violent
and assaults her at will.
To counter her claim, Aleksander rushed to obtain his own
order granting him access to the children which he also got
with the condition that Vivi and her mother, Mrs Cecilia Ibru
must be there anytime Alek makes contact with the
children at an agreed date and time.
As the legal fireworks rage, Aleksander moved to Nigeria
and filed for another divorce in Imo state, Nigeria and
ultimately obtained dissolution of the marriage which is
what Vivi is challenging in court now. She claimed in her
own petition that she was not aware of the case filed by her
husband. She is in the court of appeal to overturn the
judgement of the lower court in the dissolution of the
marriage, maintaining it was obtained by fraud. Presently,
Vivi is in London while the fight to reverse the judgement,
especially the position which she gave her estranged
husband the custody of the children continues.
Aleksander Stankov and Vivi got married at Our Savior's
church, lagos in 2006. Vivi's mother, Cecilia Ibru pulled
heavyweights to the lavish wedding of the year and eight
years on, the union has packed up. On Fridat August 29th
2014, we sent a message to Vivi who is presently in
London for her reaction. She didn't reply till we went to

Louis van Gaal splashed out a total of €200 million
on seven players, including a British-record fee for
Angel Di Maria, as 2014 saw a huge increase in
clubs' outlays
Deadline day saw the Premier League reach a record €1
billion spend on transfers this summer.
The huge numbers were led by Manchester United, whose
huge outlay of €200 million on seven players was the
highest single-window spend yet by a British club.
It included a €75m deal to recruit winger Angel Di Maria
from Real Madrid, the highest fee ever spent by any British
team, and a late loan deal for Monaco's Radamel Falcao .
The Colombia international sealed a sensational switch to
Old Trafford after a long summer of intense interest from th
likes of Carlo Ancelotti's Champions League winners and
Premier League holders Manchester City.
According to analysis from Deloitte’s Sports Business
Group, summer spending is up by almost €250m on 2013's
total of €796m, which was at the time €164m higher than
ever before.
"This summer transfer window is one of records," said Dan
Jones, a partner in the Sports Business Group.
"There are a number of factors contributing to this
summer's spend, including the showcase for global talent a
World Cup provides. However, one of the main drivers of
Premier League spending continues to be the increased
resources clubs now have as a result of improved broadcas
"Last season the average Premier League club received
around €31.6m more in central broadcast distributions than
they did in 2012-13, which helped fuel a record transfer
window last summer. We are again seeing Premier League
clubs use these resources to contribute to what is a new
record this summer."
