Pastor Chris Okotie, the Pastor of the Household of God Church has dismissed allegation by Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, that he contributed to the ruin of the actors marriage.
Reports surfaced a few days ago that Emeka Ike accused Okotie of sabotaging every attempt of his to reconcile with his wife, Emma.
Pastor Chris Okotie just absolved my wife into his church without making any effort to get in touch with me. If as a pastor, your church member is having issue with her husband, and you failed to do anything to resolve it, what kind of pastor are you? When I called him, he refused to pick my call. He also failed to react to a text message I sent to him. Is that a man of God?… The lawyer which Okotie hired for my wife is also frustrating every attempt I make to resolve the matter peacefully.
However, a media consultant to the musician-turned-pastor has responded to the accusation saying, “There is nothing to what he is saying. It is total rubbish. What is he saying? Why will the pastor be interested in his domestic issue? Will he say he wants to marry the woman? What kind of man will say that kind of thing on the Internet? Why is it that each time any of them has any issue they always want to bring Okotie into it? Responding to the outburst will only make the guy feel important. The pastor can’t dignify him with any.“
It is not only his wife that Emeka has issues with. He is also in a heated battle for the seat of President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) with Ibinabo Fiberesima.
