The former wife of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Anita, who now goes by her maiden name Ebhodaghe, has finally spoken out about her rift and messy divorce with ex-husband.

The news and controversy that surrounded their divorce caused a stir amongst their admirers and church members.

Recall that Anita filed for divorce in April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, United Kingdom on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour.”

She has now chosen to address the divorce and tell her side of the story. Anita took to her blog to discuss how her life has changed lately since quitting her union with Pastor Chris.

She wrote, “I have been through this journey of rediscovery and nothing is as beautiful as realising one's uniqueness as I have done. Life is a precious, however, your life can go through different seasons; winter, spring, summer or autumn.

“Life can hit you with financial loss, disappointments, death of a loved one, a broken relationship, loss of a job, a divorce, being falsely accused or being a victim of crime. These can shatter you to pieces but you can do something about it.

“Life is a gift from God and you deserve to be happy irrespective of your age, race, gender, background or financial situation. I urge you to appreciate the gift you are, you are precious and valuable.

“Never lose sight of who you are; begin to create new visions and dreams for your life. Let nothing stop you from growing every day.

“My story is not one of a bed of roses, far from it but I had a choice to either beat myself over the regret of tolerating abuse for so long or put a stop to the abuse and recreate my life for the best. My journey was not in vain. I can now help others realise that their situation does not define them.”
