News of the divorce between Pastor and Anita Oyakhilome surfaced on August 29, 2014. Pastor Anita has filed a divorce suit at a UK court to end their 24-years old marriage. She said through her lawyers that she is done with Pastor Chris and there is no hope of reconciliation.
Pastor Chris who finally spoke on the divorce suit during the monthly global communion service of the church, said it is not biblical to divorce, but if his wife insists on it, he could consider it as an opinion.
Meanwhile, Pastor Anita has started her own online church; www.pastoranita.org where she bares heart to millions of people on why her marriage crashed and giving hope to those going through the agony she went through in her collapsed marriage.
