Anita's divorce suit was filed in No FD14D01650 on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK.

Her attorneys, Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors made the revelation on her behalf, saying that that the marriage should be dissolved on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour” and “adultery".

There has been numerous speculations over the years, revealing that Pastor Chris has been having inappropriate relationships with members of his staff, a fact which he still denied till date.

Anita's attorney's also made the announcement of the divorce, as well as her withdrawal from the church.

The statement issued by the law firm via its website, read:

“We have been requested by Anita Oyakhilome to confirm that on the 8th February 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.”

The Cable had reported allegations leveled against Chris by Anita as far back as August 2014, but the pastor had only broken his silence a week later, calling the allegations “crazy” and “stupid”.

Speaking on the accusations on September 8 during the monthly global communion service of the church, Chris had said:

“I heard that some media houses – especially in Nigeria – are writing some things against me. All sorts of frivolous charges, that’s crazy."

“You have to understand something about a man of God. A man of God is not just someone who worships God or preaches God. A man of God is handpicked by God, set on course by God. If you study the scriptures, you will not find one man of God go against God, sinning against God."
