A New Twist: Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Name Removed As Trustee Of Church’s U.K. Branch

The last might not have been heard of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
and his wife’s divorce saga, as some people have decided to be at his wife’s
side. It will be recalled that Pastor Chris has removed his wife’s name from
the church’s official website and other important materials relating to the
church, and now the church’s UK branch leaders have also decided to remove
Pastor Chris’ name as one of the Church’s trustees. Premium Times got to see
the documents and below is how they report it… It is well.

The face-off between the Founder of Believers Love World
(aka Christ Embassy) Chris Oyakhilome, and his wife, Anita, has taken a new
dimension with Mr. Oyakhilome now removed as a trustee of a United Kingdom’s
branch of the church.
With Mr. Oyakhilome’s removal, his wife, Anita, now presides
over a seven-man Board of Trustees of the N8.2 billion rich branch, church
documents reviewed by Premium Times have shown.

The six other members of the board are Obi Chiemeka, Ifeoma
Onubogu, Nkem Odiakah, Raymond Okocha, Tony Obi and Uche Onubogu, all pastors
believed to be loyal to Mrs. Oyakhilome.
Mrs. Oyakhilome has for long headed the U.K branch of the
church but her husband, before what appears his sudden removal, had since
inception presided over the Board of Trustees of the charity.
The new development suggests that in addition to the
matrimonial squabble the couples are having, an intense power struggle and
battle for the soul of the U.K. branch of the church might be going on between
the estranged lovers and partners as well.
In fact, Mr. Oyakhilome had dropped the first hint that
there might be a hierarchical row in the church when he reportedly accused his
wife of acting like an equal and wanting to overpower the authorities of the
elders she met in the church.
Premium Times review of documents filed by the church’s UK
branch to the Charity Commission of England and Wales has now shown that Mr.
Oyakhilome is no longer a registered trustee of a branch of his church with
total asset worth over N8.2 billion (£31 million).
Until he was recently abruptly removed, Mr. Oyakhilome was
consistently listed as a prominent trustee since 1996, when the branch was

Contrary to the church’s practice of stating reasons for
removal of trustees in the past, no reason has been given for the removal of
Pastor Oyakhilome.
