Nasty things Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said about Anita

The Big news today was the  suit filed in London by Rev. Anita Oyakhilome, seeking divorce from her husband, Chris Oyakhilome, over alleged adultery and ‘unreasonable behaviour’.

“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, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors

The story of the divorce had been an open secret since early this year, when people began to see less and less of Anita and Chris together, especially at functions where they were supposed to appear as  a couple. The first indication of disharmony was the decision of Pastor Chris to relocate to South Africa while the wife, managed the Christ Embassy churches in London. She is also in-charge of her own chapter, Christ Embassy Docklands on North Woolwich, London and she is the co-Director of LoveWorld Christian Network. This was in January. But by May, the story returned to the front pages.

Anita and Chris Oyakhilome

Church members, including Pastor Chris denied the marital schism and at a stage Pastor Chris had to dash to London to knock his flock back in line, because of fears that they were siding with his estranged wife, who was running the church business  in the UK.

Now that it has now been confirmed that Anita had indeed filed divorce papers since April, we share some of the nasty things Chris had said about Anita, most of it when he addressed pastors and deacons of his church at the Bermondsey branch of the church on 16 May.

“Bitterness is prolonged and accumulated anger. My wife is always angry and bitter,”

 “Some pastors’ wives think when they marry a pastor, they are equal to the pastor. My wife thinks so. As a matter of fact, Rev. Tom was her pastor before I married her and Rev. Ray and Evang. Owase were her leaders long before I married her. How come she thinks she’s senior to them now?

“I already started Christ Embassy before I married her. I didn’t marry her and said we should start Christ Embassy. I
was already ‘pastoring.’ I already set my sail and knew my direction before I married her. I only said ‘come and help

“Be careful of the friends you keep. My wife keeps friends who bring out the worst in her and help her see the worst in
people, instead of keeping friends that will help her vision, especially as the wife of a global pastor like me.”

The couple’s marriage, two decades ago,  produced two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn. Oyakhilome  is the president of Believers’ Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his estranged wife is the vice-president.

  • Marriage is to be enjoyed and not to be managed! Once you begin to manage marriage you can never be faithful to your partner. If the two no longer agree, let them part ways after all there is nothing like marriage in Heaven.

  • pastor Anita, if he offends you seventy times seven, forgive him in accordance to biblical injunction. Jerry Bauka

  • Ps Chris worshippers truth is your pastor committed adultery and his own wife is divorcing him. the devil here is teh pastor who came before you in righteousness and holiness but was lying to you. "what if the allegations are true" Ps Anita is a Pastor, she knows the word of God. She must truly have good proof to be divorcing her husband on ADULTERY charges. Why must Anita stay with a scandalous lying pastor if her allegations are true. Why must she stand next to a lying man who will take many souls to hell. If Chris cheated he is compromised the Grace of God is gone in him. Achabod.

  • At this time on crisis they need our prayers more than ever, though am not a member of Christ Embassy I really love the ministry and not so happy with the news on air. l really pray for God's strength and courage for every one in the church.

  • I say a BIG amen to your prayers and join my faith with yours. May the good Lord take control and collect the barton fron the devil and his agents in Jesus name

  • First, i must say that no one should speak evil of a man of God, as believers, we should help to build and not destroy, let God be the judge.. as believers if you let the devil use you and paste any sort of evil words jokingly or intentionally against a man of God .. I bet you, you will regret your life for the rest of the year. Be warned..!

  • I pray for them. But if pastor chris was very much aware that this pastors he mentioned started the foundation of this church and they were older than Anita in the church, and suffered for the church, Why making her the vice-president. When it is not a family business but house of God. I pray that God restores love and peace in their family. What God has joined together let body, no money, pride, greed, sickness, selfishness or any misbehaviour from both parties put asunder.

  • When people get married they should stay together and not leade separate lives. teh fact that they never stayed together was in itself a recipe for disastor. The MOG should be humble enouggize for any wrong doing for the sake of the gospel he should not be proud.
