Divorce Saga:Okotie replies Emeka Ike says his allegations are so baseless.
Pastor of the Household of God Church, Lagos,Chris Okotie, has described an allegation levelled against him by Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, that he is responsible for the crisis rocking his marriage, as rubbish.Trouble started in Ike’s home recently, when the wife accused him of assaulting her.
He also claimed that the pastor gave the woman N500,000 to hire a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.He added, “Yes, Pastor Chris Okotie just absolved (sic) my wife into his church without making any effort to get in touch with me. If, as a pastor, your church member is having issues with her husband, and you fail 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?
But speaking through his media consultant in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Thursday, Mr. Ladi Ayodeji, media consultant to Okotie, said Ike’s allegations were so baseless that the he was not prepared to dignify them with a comment.
