New reports claim that General Overseer of the Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome is experiencing some marital crisis.
It all started when Pastor Chris Oyakhilome relocated to Johannesburg in South Africa
in January while his wife stayed back in the UK where she had lived for
years – an action that did not go down well with his church members.
His church members who did not approve of them living apart, recently created a Facebook page asking for some explanations.
to them, Pastor Chris, has never been spotted with his wife by his side
– not during ministry conferences, not during conferences by other
ministers and never during the monthly communion service transmitted
live from a TV studio. They inquired further why other high ranking

Embassy. I was already pastoring. I already set my sail and knew my direction
before I married her. I only said come and help me.
My wife keeps friends who bring out the worst in her and help her see the worst
in people instead of keeping friends that will help her vision especially as
