First, Ituah was a divorcee.
A chartered Accountant, his first wife, Lucy-Ann Summer, who is also of same profession, left him.
Meanwhile, his first marriage which was contracted abroad was without a child and his wife refused to return with him to Nigeria. He became born again and she broke up with him.
As a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church Of God, RCCG, he was not expected to be divorced.
The rule is, as long as that spouse you are divorced from is alive, you cannot remarry.
Maybe that kept Pastor Ituah for 10 years as a bachelor. He was single, divorced but pastoring a RCCG Parish n Gbagada.
Then, he met a beautiful youth corper, Ibidunni Ajayi, who had also contested for the Miss Lux Beauty Pageant.
A graduate of Microbiology, Ibidun and Pastor Ituah dated for four years.
“I met Ibidun when she was fresh out of school and we became friends. She was young and always wanted to organize things,” he told members of the Professional Event Planners Association, who paid him a condolence visit on Tuesday.
He proposed to her after 18 months of friendship.
They got married on April 16, 2007 and had their engagement three days later in Ibadan.
Since he had remarried, he had to leave the Redeemed Church.
Two years later, he founded the Trinity House Church.
Little wonder, she wrote on their 12th wedding anniversary in 2019:
You’ve been my friend…..
You’ve been my lover…..
You’ve been my father….
You’ve been a husband…..
You’ve comforted me…..
You’ve made me laugh….
You’ve groomed me…..
You’ve defended me…..
You’ve understood me….
You’ve stood by me….. Everyday in my consciousness and unconsciously I thank God for the gift of Olajide…. God truly knew what He was doing when He made our paths cross……”
She would always talk about their love and his support. When they had their 13th wedding anniversary last February, she wrote,
“13th year anniversaries are symbolised by LACE… Baby,
May our lives continue to be LACED in love
May our love continue to be LACED with Gods grace

Meanwhile, the pastor husband during their 11th wedding anniversary in 2018 wrote about his wife: “My superstar… life without you is colourless and dry… thank you for bringing so much joy and favour my way…You are my EVERYTHING and I promise to love and protect you all the days of your life… Happy anniversary Kokoye.”
She would have been 40 years on July 19, Ituah clocked 59 years on April 6, 2020
