After the divorce in 2016, lawyers of Pastor Anita Oyakhilome confirmed that she was no longer a part of, or involved in, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's church, Christ Embassy.
They released a statement on their website saying that the divorce proceedings were finalised.
“Anita Oyakhilome would like to confirm that she is no longer involved in or part of Christ Embassy, A.K.A. Believers LoveWorld Inc,” it said, among other things.
Shortly after this statement saying that their divorce was finalised, Pastor Anita Oyakhilome's name and image were removed from the church's website and the church's daily devotional, “Rhapsody of Realities”, which she co-authored with ex-husband Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, so as not to mislead the public.
This was also as a result of separating their assets.
