Helen,wife of Nigerian Pentecostal pastor, Ayo Oritsejafor, has threatened to taken legal action against those peddling rumours of her divorce from Ayo her husband. She has dismissed as false viral claims that she is set to divorce Ayo her husband.
Oritsejafor, senior pastor and founder of Word of Life Bible Church, located in Warri, Delta state is a former national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
In the past two weeks, rumours were rift that Pa Ayo as he’s fondly called and his wife ended their 25 year old marriage over Helen’s infidelity.
The rumour mill also had it that Helen moved out of their matrimonial home, taking her children with her abroad.
But in a Facebook post Monday, Helen who described the reports as unbelievable said the report of a divorce with Pastor Oritsejafor was “fake, malicious, and unthinkable”.
“My attention has been drawn to the fake and malicious news making rounds on blogs, social media platforms and the newspapers against my character and that of my family. It’s totally unbelievable, reprehensible and unthinkable and it’s important that I make the facts clear,” she wrote.
“I am a wife, a mother and a woman of God, and I uphold the tenets of my Christian faith and marriage. My family and home is the most important part of my life.
“I therefore appeal to everyone to put our interest and that of our lovely kids, above the need to profit from this baseless endeavor. My Husband and I are not divorced, unless people get divorced on social media and I have never been unfaithful to my husband, whom I love very dearly,” she wrote.
Helen said she has informed her lawyers to take legal action against those who circulated the divorce rumours.
“These are works of the devil and his agents to dent my character and good works. Over the years, I have committed my time and resources towards reaching out to the needy, providing support to widows and giving scholarships to orphans,” she added.
“I have also taught and mentored a lot of young women on the principles of building and living happily with their spouses through my various platforms both on and offline. I cannot go against my own beliefs.
“I plead with the general public to give my family the privacy it needs and disregard cheap attempts to dent my image. In retrospect to the fake news, I have briefed my lawyers and all necessary legal actions are being taken. Thank you all and stay blessed,” she added.
