Chris Oyakhilome’s Wife, Anita Files For Divorce On Adultery Grounds


_GLees%20MEDIA_ News reaching Nigeriafilms.com from The Cable

has it that the dissolution of the marriage

between Christ Embassy Church founder, Pastor

Chris Oyakhilome, and his wife, Rev. Anita

Odegwa Oyakhilome, has entered the final phase.

His wife, Anita is seeking divorce on the grounds

of “unreasonable behavior” and “adultery”.

According to The Cable, she outlined several

allegations against the pastor which cannot

publish for legal reasons. The divorce case, with

Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at

Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First

Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on

Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors,

a full-service law firm with expertise in

commercial law and a strong consumer focus in

family, wills and estate, personal injury law and

medical negligence.

Oyakhilome is the president of Believers’ Love

World Inc, the registered name of the Christian

ministry, while his wife is the vice-president. The

pastor, according to an elder of the church, has

denied allegations of adultery and believes his

wife is being influenced by “bad friends” who are

intent on destroying their home. While Anita

believes she has been relegated in the scheme of

things in the church, her husband has reportedly

accused her of trying to usurp power and

authority above her seniors in the ministry.

Sources said that the pastor had been making

efforts to avoid divorce in the hope that the wife

would eventually have a change of mind.

However, the decree nissi was served on the

charismatic pastor in his hotel room during a

recent visit to the UK. Decree nissi, in legal terms,

is like a yellow card in a football match which is a

precursor to a red card (“decree absolute”) if no

new evidence is provided to stall proceedings.

Church insiders said Oyakhilome had been hoping

for rapprochement, but he was left with no

option than to receive the papers when the

lawyers cornered him at his hotel in London. The

decree absolute, which will effectively end the

marriage, is expected to be issued soon while

terms of the divorce will be worked out by the

lawyers on both sides.

Recall that some weeks ago when some insiders

of the church said it was all rumors that the

couple will be divorced soon and they denied that

there is any fight in the marriage. Efforts to

reconcile the popular couple, whose church is one

of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and has

branches all over world, have failed. They have

two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.”
