Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, founder of Believers' Loveworld Incoporated, aka Christ Embassy, has got an official separation from his wife of many years, Anita Oyakhilome.

The divorce came on February 8, 2016 from a court in High Holborn, London, United Kingdom, which granted Anita's divorce wishes based on what she termed the unreasonable behaviour and infidelity of Oyakhilome.

Anita's lawyers, Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors, said on their website that "On 8th February 2016 a decree absolute was pronounced in the High Court of Justice Principal Registry of the Family Division dissolving (Anita's) marriage to Christian Onehirokpeana Oyakhilome."

Pastor and Mrs. Oyakhilome made the headlines in 2014 when news broke out that Anita was seeking an end to her marriage alleging infidelity and unacceptable behaviour on the part of her husband.

Anita, who used to be a partner to Oyakhilome in most of the activities of the church, including its satellite broadcast, books and periodical devotional booklets, has dissociated herself from Christ Embassy. Similarly, Oyakhilome and his congregation have moved on from the incident with the pastor's former wife no longer appearing on their website or any of the church's publications.
