Ayo Oritsejafor and his wife
The former couple reportedly argued in recent years over allegations of infidelity and fraud by Ms Oritsejafor, forcing her to move from her marital home and to the UK.
There was also the matter of Mrs. Oritsejafor’s taking over ownership of Eagle Flight Micro Finance Bank, an action against her husband vehemently since the bank was owned solely by the church.
In 2020, Helen accused her husband of making plans to kill her.
Oritsejafor is the founding and main pastor of the Word of Life Bible Church, located in Warri, Delta state.
He married Helen in 1997, 13 months after the death of his late wife Stella, with whom he founded the World of Life Bible Church on November 15, 1987.
The fervent preacher was elected president of the Nigerian Christian Association in 2010, after his five-year reign as president of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria.
