EXCLUSIVE: I’m done with Pastor Chris; No going back on divorcing him – Wife


Church members and other well-wishers hoping

the matrimonial squabble between popular

televangelist, Chris Oyakhilome and his wife,

Anita, would be resolved in no time should forget

it as Mrs. Oyakhilome has ruled out the possibility

of ever reconciling with her estranged husband.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, through her

lawyers, Mrs Oyakhilome said her relationship

with Pastor Chris had terribly degenerated that

there is no room for any reconciliation or out-of-

court settlement.

This newspaper had contacted Mrs. Oyakhilome

through her lawyers, Attwaters Jameson Hill

Solicitors, after news broke that she had filed for

divorce, to enquire whether any out-of-court

settlement option was being explored.

In their response Tuesday, her attorneys said

there was no chance the estranged couple would

ever live as husband and wife again.

“It is with great sadness that our client, Pastor

Anita Oyakhilome, has come to the conclusion

that her marriage to Pastor Christian Oyakhilome

has irretrievably broken down and regrettably

there is no hope of any reconciliation,” said

Stephen Goddard, Business Development

Manager of Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors.

From early this year, there had been speculation

that the marriage between Mr Oyakhilome, the

founder of Believers Love World (aka Christ

Embassy), and his wife, who is also Vice-president

of the ministry, was collapsing.

Some church members even set up a Facebook

page, “Where is Rev Anita Oyakhilome”, in May

dedicated to addressing the issue.

The church initially denied reports that the couple

were estranged and possibly divorcing.

But TheCable news website reported on August 29

that Mrs. Oyakhilome had filed for divorce since

April 9, accusing Pastor Chris, as he is fondly

called by his followers, of “adultery” and

“unreasonable behaviour”.

Pastor Chris has denied the allegations. He

however warned church members against

analysing his problem with his wife adding that

the church is not a political party.

He said his wife is a bitter and angry woman who

is being influenced by bad friends who are out to

seek his downfall.

The pastor added that most pastors’ wives usually

think they are equal to their husbands after they

get married.

He said his wife wanted to overpower the

authorities of the elders she met when she joined

the Christian ministry.

As the divorce battle rages, Mrs. Oyakhilome’s

profile has been pulled down from the church’s
