Months after the controversial separation of the founder of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife, Pastor Anita, they have decided to share their two children.
Dailypost reports that Sharon, the eldest, prefers Pastor Chris, while Charlene is presently with Anita. Recall that Anita had last year April approached a London court, seeking a divorce on the grounds of adultery among several allegations. The suit, number FDI 4001650, was filed on her behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors on April 9, 2014 at the Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, United Kingdom.
Pastor Chris had then denied the allegations leveled against him by Anita and even went ahead to threaten to sue media houses for damaging his name and Church. Last September, a statement by his counsel, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), described the allegation as “wicked and malicious”, and an attempt to bring Pastor Chris “to public opprobrium and ridicule.”
Pinheiro said the adultery allegation “currently circulating in the media was nothing but a complete distortion of facts in the pending proceedings in the United Kingdom”.
The lawyer warned media establishments to verify the authenticity of their stories before publication, saying his counsel would take appropriate legal actions against them to protect Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s reputation and that of the church.
In another twist to the divorce' saga, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome was said to have been removed as a trustee of the UK branch of the church. A step which everyone thinks it was in a bid to spite the Pastor Chris.
Recall that just recently, the Internal Revenue service closed down pastor Chris' Television show over tax evasion.
