Pastor Ken Oyakhilome who is also a co-founder of the church, used to be the regional pastor of Christ Embassy in charge of South Africa then later transferred to the branch in the USA. He was reportedly having an illicit affair with a female member which was an 'open secret' among members of the church.
As the divorce drama of Chris Oyakhilome and his wife Anita intensifies, another Oyakhilome sibling who is also a pastor, has also been accused of the same unholy act which is the grounds for the reported divorce – adultery.
Not long after the news of the divorce broke on social media, a news site Nigerian Times reported that Ken Oyakhilome, the younger brother of the Christ Embassy founder, allegedly impregnated a South African lady who is a member of the Church in Randburg, Guateng, which is the headquarters of Christ Embassy, South Africa.
According to reports, Pastor Ken Oyakhilome who is also a co-founder of the church, used to be the regional pastor of Christ Embassy in charge of South Africa and was later transferred to the branch in the USA. He was reportedly having an illicit affair with a female member which was an 'open secret' among members of the church.
The lady reportedly got pregnant and when the news started to spread round, church officials quickly killed the issue to prevent a scandal. The news site reported that the church leader reportedly supported the abortion.
It was gathered that at the time of the affair, Pastor Ken lived in South Africa while his wife, Ose Oyakhilome lived in Nigeria, pastoring the Okota, Lagos branch of the church. The two still live apart as he now runs the church in Texas.
Some church members who were angry by the latest development, were on Facebook to comment on the situation and confirm the shocking disclosures:
From Sister Lebogang Radibela:
“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, till today she is still a pastor, working together with the wife to the pastor who impregnated her. Members act like this is normal; I mean where we draw a line.”
From Jacob 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.”
The Pulse.ng reported on Sunday that Pastor Anita’s details and a paragraph in Pastor Chris’ profile which talked about his marriage had all been deleted from Believers Love World website, hinting that the problem may be worse than a scratch on the surface.
