The embittered man said he was elated when his wife was employed in the church because he had thought that she would be safe in the house of God but regretted that now he felt betrayed by the man who is not only the chief shepherd of the churches in Imo and Anambra states but also a family friend who eats and drinks with him in his house. He was angry that the pastor had allegedly been having an affair with his wife behind his back until God decided to expose them. He claimed that since his discovery of the alleged amorous relationship, his life had been in danger.
“Since I discovered this unholy relationship between my wife and Pastor Okpulor, my life has been under constant threat by the two to the extent that my wife had gone to the landlord and threatened him, warning that if he does not throw me out of the house, that he would be dealt with. I came back from my daily work one evening and the landlord called me and gave me two weeks quit notice because he does not want any problem with anybody on account of my living in his house. I had to plead with him to give me at least a month for me to find another accommodation. It was some members of the church who raised the money for me to pay. Later the tricycle I was using for transport business suddenly disappeared from where it was parked. I know this is also the handiwork of my ex- wife and her accomplices because they have vowed to make life unbearable for me as long as I continue with the matter.
“The only thing I need now is to get my three children back but my wife has vowed that I can never get them back, claiming that the children no longer belong to me. This is the reason I had to engage the services of a lawyer to get my children back since my wife has already made up her mind to become the unofficial second wife of the pastor. My attorney has written to Pastor Udoh, reminding him of the letter I had earlier written to him on January 17, 2013 to investigate the matter, but the head of the church in the entire Eastern region has chosen not to do his duty by sanctioning Pastor Okpulor.”
“I reported the case to her family members and told them how my wife has turned our matrimonial home into a chalet, sleeping with the pastor who she is working with in the same office, and when her family members tried to intervene in the matter, she simply told them off, saying that she was no longer interested in the marriage. By early February 2013, she had packed all her belongings and abandoned the children and left the house before I returned from work.”
