Popular Nigeria Pastor: Chris Oyakhilome’s Wife Files For Divorce In London

Anita is said to be seeking a divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behavior”, “adultery” and several other allegations which cannot be published for legal reasons.
The suit number of the divorce case is No FD14D01650, and it was filed on April 9, 2014, at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK, on Anita’s behalf by Attwaters Jameson Hill Solicitors.
The decree nisi (in legal terms, is like a yellow card in a football match which is a precursor to a red card) was served to Pastor Chris in his hotel room during a recent visit to the UK and the decree absolute, which will effectively end the marriage, is expected to be issued soon.
Anita had wanted to go public with the details of her allegations against the husband but reached an informal agreement to sheathe her sword in the interest of the church.
According to an elder of the church, the pastor has denied his wife’s allegations of adultery blaming it on the influence of ‘Bad friends’ who are intent on destroying their home.
While Anita believes she has been relegated in the scheme of things in the church, her husband has reportedly accused her of trying to usurp power and authority above her seniors in the ministry.
After months of speculations over the marriage crisis between the founder of Christ Embassy Church Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his wife Anita, a new report resurfaced claiming the wife has now filed for divorce in a London court.
In an exclusive report published by The Cable News, the divorce proceeding has entered its final phase.
It would be recalled that sometime in May 2014, there were , asking: “Where is Rev. Anita Oyakhilome?”
Officials of the church quickly moved to deny any rift between the pastor and his wife.
Oyakhilome is the President of Believers’ Love World Inc, the registered name of the Christian ministry, while his wife is the Vice President and he is regarded as one of the richest and most influential pastors in Nigeria.
They have two teenage daughters, Sharon and Charlyn.

‘Escape From New York’ Reboot Following ‘Group’ Thinking of ‘Avengers,’ ‘X-Men,’ ‘Justice League’

By Jeff Sneider
Joel Silver may be building a “team” of co-leads around antihero Snake Plissken as shortlist reveals potential star
Is mega-producer Joel Silver planning to take his long-planned “Escape From New York” reboot even further in the same “team” direction as “The Avengers,” “X-Men” and the upcoming “Justice League” movie?
A new report from popular sci-fi site Starlog claims that the most recent draft of the script, which has “always had a team dynamic to it,” has elevated several former supporting characters to “co-leads,” perhaps in response to the current blockbuster marketplace.
The screenplay is now said to find iconic antihero Snake Plissken flanked by returning mates Cabbie, a schizophrenic travel guide who serves as comic relief, and Brain, Snake's former partner-in-crime who left him to die after a botched robbery, as well as Mina, a war journalist who becomes a scavenger after being framed for murder and Gareth, the last surviving member of the President's security detail who harbors a dangerous secret.
While Cabbie and Brain were significant supporting characters respectively played by Ernest Borgnine and Harry Dean Stanton in John Carpenter's 1981 classic, the other two are new additions designed to form a team of heroes in the vein of Marvel's “Avengers” that will of course be led by Snake.
And just who might have what it takes to fill Kurt Russell's giant shoes and play Snake, the convicted bank robber tasked with saving the President after Air Force One crashes in Manhattan, which has become a maximum security prison in the future?
According to a source who “has gone above and beyond to verify their association to the project,” Silver has his eye on “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam, “The Walking Dead” alum Jon Bernthal and “Downton Abbey” veteran Dan Stevens.
Starlog says that Hunnam is the “top contender” for the coveted role and that Silver Pictures has already begun “to commission pre-production artwork from independent artists featuring Hunnam as the one-eyed antihero, possibly to shop to a co-financier at AFM.”
Starlog wisely hedges its bets, however, noting that it's unclear if Hunnam's commitment to “Pacific Rim 2” will leave him unavailable, while adding that Guy Ritchie's “King Arthur” movie could further complicate the casting situation.
While Hunnam is certainly a movie star in a way that neither Bernthal nor Stevens are (yet), both of those actors may be a better fit for the job.
Stevens establishes himself as a budding movie star in Adam Wingard's upcoming thriller “The Guest,” in which he plays an ex-soldier… just like Snake Plissken! Like Hunnam, he's a talented actor who's a bit of a pretty boy, but as evidenced by “The Guest,” he's also got an edge that allows him to get nasty real quick.
Meanwhile, Bernthal plays a soldier in David Ayer‘s WWII movie “Fury,” which opens in October. Coming off roles as Leonardo DiCaprio‘s muscle in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Robert De Niro‘s son in “Grudge Match” and Marine-turned-Detective in “Mob City,” it's no surprise that he strikes this reporter as a tough guy who can deliver the kind of one-line zingers favored by Plissken.
Regardless of whether Silver chooses one of these three fine young actors or someone else entirely, it seems like he's got good taste in up-and-coming leading men. While Starlog reports that an offer is expected to go out soon, Silver Pictures is apparently close to hiring a director for the “Escape From New York” reboot and that filmmaker will likely want to weigh in on the big casting decision, so stay tuned.
