Dr. Mrs. Helen Oritsejafor, wife of the founder and senior pastor of Word of Life Bible Church, Warri, has debunked rumours of her alleged divorce from her husband of 25 years, Papa Ayo Oritsejafor.
In a statement made available to African News Eye, the woman said that the allegations were fake and malicious.
“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.”
Describing the news as works of the devil and his agents to dent her character and good works, Mama Helen (as she is fondly called) said she has taught and mentored a lot of young women on the principles of building and living happily with their spouses, hence cannot go against her own beliefs.
She pleaded with the general public to give her family the privacy it needs and disregard cheap attempts to dent her image.
She further said: “In retrospect to the fake news, I have briefed my lawyers and all necessary legal actions are being taken.”
