Oritsejafor’s wife opens up on divorce rumours

Wife of the former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Helen has disclosed that she was not divorced from her husband.

Ayo served as the national president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) from 2005 to 2010 and was subsequently elected as the first Pentecostal President of CAN same year.

Rumours recently swirled that the cleric and his wife ended their marriage of 25 years over infidelity.

It was also rumored that Helen had moved out of their matrimonial home.

But in a Facebook post on Monday, Helen described the reports as “fake, malicious, and unthinkable”.

“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,” 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.”

Helen said she has informed her lawyers to take legal action against those who circulated the divorce rumours.

“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.
