Oritsejafor's wife threaten legal action over divorce claims

Pastor Helen, the wife of the General Overseer of Word of Life Bible Church, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has refuted viral claims that she and her husband are divorced. There have been several claims that the 25 years old marriage between the preachers had crashed due to infidelity.

Papa Ayo, as the popular cleric is also called, is a former national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).

In a Facebook post recently, Helen said that she was never involved in infidelity and she loves her husband dearly. She also described the claims as fake and malicious.

She wrote,  “Fam, 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.

“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 also spoke about her contributions to the society. She said, “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.

“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."

She added that she would be taking all the necessary legal actions as she has briefed her lawyers on the issue.

She continued, “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.”

It will be recalled that Christianity Nigeria also reported that Helen's brother, Opeyemi Falegan, who is a politician, also debunked the claims that his sister's marriage has crashed.
