Read Anita Oyakhilome’s Divorce Statement

share on:

The crash of the marriage between Chris & Anita Oyakhilome has been widely reported after Anita requested for a divorce.

According to ThisDay, who claimed to have obtained a copy of Anita’s divorce petition, the reverend is filing for the divorce on the grounds on unresaonable behaviors on the part oh her husband. Read the statement below.

“The wife has discussed with the husband his inappropriate relationship with some of his female staff members. She has explained that this has given her cause for concern. The husband has minimised her worries and taken no step to alleviate her grievances.”

“The wife submits that her marriage to the husband has irretrievably broken down and there is no hope of reconciliation. The wife will submit that it is the husband’s unreasonable behaviours which have led to this.

“The husband and the wife are both Pastors. The husband undertakes his work, in the main, in South Africa and Nigeria. The wife lives in the United Kingdom. The wife will say that they have lived separately for 16 years and over this time have drifted apart. The wife has come to realise that the husband will only visit the UK for annual church programmes that he holds rather than to be with this wife. The wife feels that he has been unavailable as a father to their children during their developing years.

“The wife feels that their marriage suffered under the pressure of their work. They would rarely spend time together due to the husband unavailability. Special occasions such as Christmas, Birthdays and family occasions and anniversaries past them by and their rarely spent any time together as a family as the husband was more devoted to his work than he was to them.

“The wife feels that she has been used to portray and enhance the husband’s image as a family man when the reality is that there is no existing relationship between them. She feels that she has been present for official functions simply for his convenience. On occasions she has been copied into his travel itinerary which has been given to him by his staff on a need to know basis.
“The wife has tried to discuss her concerns with the husband. He claims that she is carnal and he is insensitive to her feelings and her needs.”

“As a result of the husband’s attitude to their marriage, the wife will say that he is virtually not recognised as a married man in the ministry. His teachings and beliefs on marriage is that the husband is a master and a controller and the wife will say that his concept of biblical; submission is so extreme that it is impossible for her to meet his expectations. She feels humiliated by the way he treats her in the presence of his close female staff members and she feels that she has been taken for granted which has become unbearably stressful for her.

“The wife will say that the relationship with  the husband is non-existent to the point that his itinerary which was announced  publicly at the beginning of the year had no provision for time with his family. His staff members who travel with him organise both his personal and professional life without any input from her. The wife will say that she is treated with disregard almost like akin to an intruder.

“The wife feels that she has been mentally, physically and emotionally deprived of the experience of a marital relationship. She feels that the husband has persistently judged her  and his communication with her has been unduly harsh. The wife knows that he was hard to please and has been extremely critical.

“The wife reserves the right to expand on all of these particulars if the divorce petition is defended.” (59)

  3. Man of God pastor chris, am very concerned with the situation you are in as of now, am not a preacher am also a man of God as you have sayd in one of your speech. Am here by to tell you that you have to take your wife back, in fact God was not a fool to give you that woman he had his own purpose on giving you that woman, if you need God to use u more and if you need God to reveal more about who he really to you, then you have to take your wife back and I repeat you have to take her back, you have leave a life of example yah! You better do that pastor, she is your wife and she iis carrying two of your children. If you are the man of God is he the same God who has told you that you have to divorce your wife, if the decision that you have made is not from God then I insist that you have to consult God and let him give you the proper direction.
