Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s ex-wife Anita remarries, changes name

There are strong indications that the estranged wife of the founder of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – Anita Oyakhilome has moved on with her life following the divorce from her ex husband.

According to the latest gist in town, she has remarried. She sparked up marriage rumors recently after she introduced ‘Schafer’ to her maiden name.

She authored her latest article ‘A Simple Prayer’ with the name Anita Ebhodaghe Schafer, on her online Christian portal at

Below is an article where it was confirmed she had remarried, as one of the approved comments said, “Congratulations Pastor Anita for your new name.”

Two other comments stated: “Congratulations Pastor Anita for your new name.”

“It was such a beautiful ceremony,” also confirmed that the mother of two had tied the nuptial nuts.

Anita Oyakhilome remarries

It would be recalled that Anita was last year, involved in a messy break up with her husband, Chris after she claimed he was involved in illicit affairs with female members of the church.

She said she tolerated abuse for so long and subsequently, the ministry pulled down her profile from the church website, a development that showed all was not well with the family.

She had confirmed she was no longer a part of, or involved in, Christ Embassy, also known as, Believers LoveWorld INC.

Anita, however, officially filed for divorce at Central Family Court, High Holborn, London, UK, citing her husband’s “unreasonable behaviour” and inappropriate relationships with members of staff, an intonation of “adultery” as her reason.

But some Nigerians are not happy with this latest news. While some people believe it’s okay to divorce rather kill their spouses out of frustration or be killed if they are being abused, others believe that a pastor should do everything to keep his or her home intact.

Here are some reactions to the story:

Pashaly B said: Pastor that cannot even keep a peaceful home, I wonder he has been preaching about marriage.

Regy Wamad said:

Preaching the bible, teaching the word but none understood the bible to obey God’s words that marriage is once and for better for worst. Follow my preaching don’t follow my doings is totally wrong.

Olaoye Saint Olusegun said:

End time is near. The Bible says married couples that divorced should not remarry until the death of one of them where are today Christians picking their lesson. God help us to be the doers of your words and not the readers and hearers only. Amen.
