Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church, and his wife, Anita Odegwa Oyakhilome, are reportedly undergoing divorce proceedings. Anita is said to be filing for divorce on grounds of “adultery and unreasonable behaviour,” The Citizen reports.
According to reports, 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.
An elder of Christ Embassy reportedly told news sources that Pastor Chris is denying the allegations of adultery, and that he is convinced that his wife is being influenced by “bad friends” who want to destroy their home.
In addition to the adultery accusations, it is alleged that Anita is accusing her husband of relegating her in church affairs. On the other hand, sources say Pastor Chris thinks his wife is trying to “usurp power and authority above her seniors in the ministry.”
Reports also state that all efforts being made to reconcile the couple have failed.
The dissolution of the couple’s marriage is said to be in the final phases.
They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.
