The founder of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has denied the allegation of adultery leveled against him by his wife, Anita.

His counsel, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), described the allegation as ?wicked and malicious?, and an attempt to bring him (Pastor Chris) and the church (Believers Love World aka Christ Embassy) ?to public opprobrium and ridicule.?

Pinheiro, in a statement on Wednesday said the adultery allegation ?currently circulating in the media was nothing but a complete distortion of facts in the pending proceedings in the United Kingdom?.

It advised media establishments to verify the authenticity of their stories before publication, saying unless they desist from making such further publications, they would take appropriate legal actions against them to protect Oyakhilome?s reputation and that of the church.

The statement titled: ?In the matter of malicious falsehood against Rev. Chris Oyakhilome and the Christ Embassy Church? said: ?The attention of our client, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome and the church, the Christ Embassy, has been drawn to the wave of false, malicious and fabricated stories being published in the print and electronic media about his person, the church and a matrimonial cause between him and his wife.

?Our client is seriously concerned that under the guise of reporting a divorce proceeding involving him, publishers resorted to an unjustified and malicious attack on his reputation for reasons not unconnected with the respective publishers? selfish motives of prospect of materials and financial advantage attendant to the wide circulation their distorted and fabricated stories would enjoy.

?The publishers decided to fabricate facts including (but not limited) to allegation of adultery against our client, with the wicked and malicious intention of bringing his person and the church to public opprobrium and ridicule.

?It is our client?s instructions to inform the public and particularly warn the concerned media houses that the news or story circulating in the media is nothing but a complete distortion of the facts in the pending proceedings in the United Kingdom, to the knowledge of the publishers?.

The nation?s media has kept tab on the divorce saga since it broke out last month.

The scandal has shattered the image of the Oyakhilomes, the celebrated couple and co-authors of a christian daily devotional, ?Rhapsody of Realities?


As at last check, the church has deleted the profile of Pastor Anita from its website, while she has ruled out any possibility of continuing matrimony with Pastor Chris.
