Rev. Ken Oyakhilome, younger brother of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, founder of Christ Embassy Church has also been accused of fornication and adultery.
Recall that Last week, there was a viral media report that Rev. Anita, wife of the popular spiritual father, Pastor Chris, had filed for divorce in the UK, on the grounds of ‘adultery’ and ‘unreasonable behaviour.’
However, in the heat of the controversy, another scandal has come up in the chuch, as Pastor Chris’ younger brother, Rev. Ken as he popularly called was alleged to have impregnated a South African lady, name withheld, a member of the Church in Randburg, Guateng, which is the headquarters of Christ Embassy, South Africa.
Rev. Ken used to be the regional Pastor of Christ Embassy in charge of South Africa until a few years when he was transferred to the branch of the church in Texas, USA.
According to the Nigerian Times, sources say the romance between Rev. Ken and the member was an open secret among members of the Church in South Africa and the alleged pregnancy of the lady was said to have ruffled feathers among the leaders of the church, but was buried in order to prevent a scandal. The lady, according to sources, aborted the child with the knowledge of front-runners of the church.
Report further says that for over ten years now, Rev. Ken has lived separately from his wife, Ose. Pastor Ose used to manage the Okota, Lagos branch of the Church while her husband, Ken was the regional pastor in South Africa. The couple still live apart, even as Pastor Ose now manages the Church in South Africa while her husband, Ken is in Texas, running the church there.
Although the alleged affair between Rev. Ken and the church member which resulted in pregnancy, was kept as atop secret, the crisis in the Church involving Pastor Chris and his wife Anita, has unraveled many things that were initially kept secret. Some members of the Church who are currently not happy over the ongoing development. They have taken to different social media platforms to air their views.
One Sister Lebogang Radibela wrote: “It’s true, here in Johannesburg a pastor impregnated a young lady and forced her to do abortion, later on, the lady was promoted to being a Pastor, and till today, she is still a Pastor, working together with the wife of the pastor who impregnated her. Members act like this is normal; I mean where we draw a line.”
AnotherJacob Nnoli: @Sister Lebogang Radibela, “it’s not just a Pastor. It’s our darling older brother, Rev. Ken himself that activated the pregnancy button, but it’s shocking to know that our regional pastor, Pastor Ose Oyakhilome, a mother herself supported the abortion and by (following the principle of the ) 48 laws of power, she’s keeping her close. That sounds like what an ‘area mother’ would do and to top it up, the grandfather himself, Rev. Chris ordained the sister a pastor and probably help seared the damaged conscience with some rands/dollars. How many more in Nigeria region? Time will fail us to speak of Asaba, Kaduna, Port Harcourt, Benin and many too numerous to mention. I had to listen to that Youtube message again this morning and I can now understand when Pastor Chris said Pastor Anita should have moved with those who will help her as the wife of global pastor. Is this what she should learn, to help Pastor Yemisi and other indicted ladies? Actually, Pastor, you forgot to announce the firing of Pastor Pat, the CSO as a result of leaked White House (Pastor Chris’ residence in Lagos) information and the hiring of a brother-in-law, Deacon Kingsley Osazuwa. Our darling Rev Ken, it looks like Durex, Trojan, and Gold circle condoms etc have all finished in the market because of ….May God have mercy but we need to obtain the mercy.”
