The statement, published on the United Kingdom-based law firm’s website, read, “We have been requested by Anita Oyakhilome to confirm that on 8th Februray 2016 a decree absolute was pronounced in the High Court of Justice Principal Registry of the Family Division dissolving her marriage to Christian Onehirokpeana Oyakhilome.

 

“Anita Oyakhilome would like to confirm that she is no longer involved in or part of Christ Embassy AKA Believers LoveWorld INC.” The popular pastor has yet to respond to the news or confirm it.

News that Anita had filed for a divorce broke in 2014, after months of rumours suggesting that all was not well with the marriage.

Hope by members of the Christ Embassy congregation that problems in the marriage would be resolved were dashed in the following months as both Anita’s lawyers and Oyakhilome issued statements that suggested the damage to the relationship was irreparable.

Shortly after the news broke, images of Anita, which were very prominent on the church’s website, were removed with her name and image also missing from the church’s devotional, Rhapsody of Realities, which she had co-authored for years with her estranged husband.

Oyakhilome, however, dismissed reports about the messy divorce including those suggesting that adultery was one of the grounds for the divorce, accusing the media of publishing a lot of “stupid things”
