Finally, Chris Oyakhilome, Anita are divorced
The cookie has finally crumbled for the marriage of Founder and co-founder Christ Embassy Church Chris Oyakhilome and no former wife Anita.
A London court has granted them leave to go their separate ways, after a process that went on for about a year.
The court in High Holborn, London, granted Anita's divorce wishes based on the unreasonable behaviour and marital infidelity of her former husband, Chris.
According to an announcement by Anita's lawyers, Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, on their website the marriage reached a cul de sac on February 8 on orders of the court.
her lawyers said, “We have been requested by Anita Oyakhilome to confirm that on February 8, 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.”
Anita filed the divorce on April 9, 2014 on the grounds of “adultery” and “unreasonable behaviours”. After months of keeping the matter out of public domain, news of the crack in their relationship came to public consciousness on August 29, 2014.The couple's marriage, two decades ago, produced two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.
Chris is one of the celebrity pastors, with large following especially among the youths. The crack and eventual dissolution of his marriage to Anita which was more or less like a poster marriage for their teeming following came as surprise to many admirers of the now separated couple.
