|Their Two Daughters|
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife, Anita Oyakhilome are above pictured on their wedding day more than 20 years ago. Those sympathetic to Pastor Chris released the picture to remind Pastor Anita of better times in hopes that she will reconsider the divorce.
She reportedly became a born-again Christian at the Believers Loveworld Campus Fellowship, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma where Chris was still a pastor in the late 1980s. Supposedly, he has remained her one and only spiritual guide and mentor since their marriage until recently when things fell apart and she filed for divorce.
However, when City People Magazine contacted Pastor Anita’s lawyers, Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, a UK-based full-service law firm, their spokesperson said there were not anticipating a reconciliation.
In the reply sent yesterday, Stephen Goddard stated that:
“It is with great sadness that our client, Pastor Anita Oyakhilome, has come to the conclusion that her marriage to Pastor Christian Oyakhilome has irretrievably broken down and regrettably there is no hope of any reconciliation. We can confirm that Pastor Anita Oyakhilome has commenced divorce proceedings in London as she resides in the UK.”
Her divorce cited irreconcilable differences bordering on alleged adultery and unreasonable behaviour. The case with suit no. FD14D01650 was filed on 9th April 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn in London.
