After the initial shock of hearing the news about the break-up between the Presiding Pastor of the Household of God Church-Pastor Kris Okotie and his former wife Stephanie Henshaw Okotie, the church has decided to issue a press statement about the situation. 

The Church apparently decided to clarify a few issues about the marriage that was supposedly, signed, sealed and settled amidst loads of pomp and pageantry about 4 years ago, which has now hit the rocks. 

Mr. Ladi Ayodeji, who is the church spokesperson in a signed statement, said the decision to cut asunder the marriage was consensual. 

Going further-“The Pastor of our Church, the Household of God, Oregun, Lagos, Rev Chris Okotie announced his separation from Stephanie his wife of four years, at the end of last Sunday service. 
'' Both parties arrived at this decision after careful review of the prevailing circumstances which pointed to the fact that it is the best option for them at this time. They also agreed not to divulge details of this incident for personal reasons. 
“Rev Okotie thanked concerned friends and well-wishers and asked for understanding. He also expressed the hope that their decision would be respected as no further details would be given on this issue.” 

Pastor Kris Okotie was married to the former Pastor Tyna Okotie for several years (17 years to be more precise) before they got divorced several years ago. After staying single for several years making him one of the most eligible bachelors in town then, he got married a second time to divorcee Stephanie Henshaw in August of 2008, a decision that was hailed and supported by many and frowned on by a few. The nuptial ceremony was a very classy affair, with many friends of the very eloquent and Flamboyant Pastor falling over themselves to show support. We were present at one of the ceremonies at Nos. 6,George Street, Ikoyi, Lagos then. We hear these would be Stephanie's third attempt at being married and she has 3 kids from the marriages. 

Now after only 4 years, the marriage contracted has fallen apart and broken down irretrievably, according to Pastor Okotie himself “Stephanie and I are no longer married. We have separated. You can see she’s not in church today. It’s due to irreconcilable differences and you should please respect our wishes at this time because there is no going back.” 

We wish both parties well in their future endeavors.

People will talk more now. I heard Vien Tetsola who had been away for 4 years after he disappointed her in marriage has suddenly resurfaced in church. I'm sure he's used his charms on her now. Shameful people using the name of God in vain.

Vien? I guess now that 2Face married the skank he was chopping your money with, you want to find redemption by this alliance with this old man. Best of luck, but they're other men na
