Why was Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Wife, Anita Absent at their daughter’s wedding Sharon?
The wedding of Christ Embassy founder, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Daughter, Sharon Oyakhilome has been trending since 4th of October.
One thing vivid is the absence of Pastor Anita Oyakhilome (Ebhodaghe Schafer) the mother of the bride and the estranged wife of Pastor Chris.
What could have caused her absence from the best moment of her daughter’s life? Did she attend but wasn’t photographed or what?
We have since gone through all the pictures from the traditional and white weddings released online but didn’t see Anita. Even the moment where she should have been part of those that prayed and blessed her:
“That Golden Moment: When Pastor Benny Hinn with Pastor Chris and Mum and Highly esteemed Pastors of the BLW ministry, said words of prayer to the Couple..”
She was unequivocally absent as captured from the picture above.
See the group photo below during the blessings that shows she could have been absent.
Pastor Anita Ebhodaghe had on April 2016 secured a divorce with the founder and Pastor of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome, In an official statement by Anita’s lawyers, Attwaters Hill, said Anita had obtained a copy of Decree Absolute from the High Court of Justice Principal Registry, London, UK, cementing the divorce.
She also noted that she was no more part of Christ Embassy.
The statement, which is on the firm’s website, read, “We have been requested by Anita Oyakhilome to confirm that on February 8, 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 Love World INC.”
Anita had filed for a divorce on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, United Kingdom, on the grounds of “unreasonable behaviour.”
