There were many rumors online and in certain Nigerian publications that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife of 20 years, Anita were getting a divorce. As shocking as it was, the truth came out on August 29th when Rev. Anita filed for divorce at the Central Family Court in High Holborn, London, UK.
It took a week, but Pastor Oyakhilome came out and made it a public announcement. Pastor Chris told his congregation and membership that it is true that divorce was not supported in the Bible, but since Rev. Anita insisted upon it, there was nothing that he could do but agree. Pastor Oyakhilome and his wife Rev. Anita grew Christ Embassy Church to the global church that it is today. His wife travelled and ministered by his side.
