Here are five things you should know about the former spouse of the head of Believer's LoveWorld Incorporation aka Christ Embassy:

Love story

Anita met Pastor Oyakhilome as an undergraduate of English Language at Ambrose Alli University, formerly known as Edo State University, Ekpoma in Edo State. This was where she became a born-again Christian.

From love to ministry

After giving her life to Christ, she started helping Oyakhilome, who was a pastor in the late 1980s. Reportedly, she was a pioneer of the ministry which started as a campus fellowship called Believer's Love World Fellowship, BLW (now Believers' LoveWorld Inc.) at the University.

She was in charge of the church's United Kingdom branches and other branches around the world. Pastor Anita was a member of the Central Executive Council of the church; the Central Executive Council is the governing body of the ministry.

She also helped with the church's extremely popular daily devotional called Rhapsody of Realities. Apart from the devotional, the couple co-wrote a lot of Christian books.

Divorce

All of these changed when she filed for divorce on April 9, 2014. Filing at the Central Family Court in London, she cited "unreasonable behavior" and "inappropriate relationships with others" as her reasons for wanting to end her 25-year marriage. The divorce was finalized in February 2016. The two now share custody of their two grown children.

Life after divorce drama

After the dissolution of her marriage, Pastor Anita changed her surname from Oyakhilome to her maiden name, Ebhodaghe.

Under her 'new' name, she remains a full-time pastor in London sharing her teachings on her blog. There are claims that she has taken over the UK branch of Christ Embassy.  This was denied on her Facebook page.

Postby

There are also rumors that she has remarried but she is yet to respond to these claims.
