Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the popular Love World Assembly, aka Christ Embassy Church has debunked the rumours which went viral that he had divorced his wife, Pastor Anita Oyakhilome.
Speaking through one of his officials, Kenneth Achumasara, he described the report as the work of mischief makers.
Kenneth said, “I can tell you authoritatively that there is no issue between Pastor Chris and his wife, Anita,” adding that the report was baseless and had no iota of truth.
According to him, Rev. Anita is handling the church’s UK agency and she is still ministering till date.
Corroborating Kenneth’s statement, another official who pleaded anonymity said, “If you go to the UK now you will see her along with the kids. She is still with him and there is no issue between them. I have been with him for 22 years and the Pastor Chris I know cannot even utter such words as reported. He will never address such a gathering. She will soon be in Nigeria for a programme and I will definitely invite you to have access to her.”
The news of Pastor Chris divorcing his wife went viral on May 28 after a facebook page which was called ‘Where is Rev. Anita Oyakhilome? was opened by some members of the church who were worried about the absence of Rev. Anita in the church who had not been seen with her husband Pastor Chris since November, 2013.
Not long after the news went viral, some officials of the church denied the report, saying it was false.
