Pastor Chris Okotie, in a statement issued on Tuesday, has denied allegations that he referred to his estranged wife Stephanie as “Jezebel” as several blogs and information websites had reported.
The statement titled: “The truth has prevailed: Agents of confusion,” issued on behalf of Pastor Chris by Head of Media and Communications Household of God Church, Ladi Ayodeji, reads:
- “Some mischievous elements have gone online with false story in which Reverend Chris Okotie’s current series of teaching on King Ahab and Jezebel’s encounter with Prophet Elijah in the bible is presented as an assault on Stephanie, his ex-wife.
“The general public is hereby, informed that Reverend Okotie has not made any reference directly or indirectly at Stephanie or their relationship since their separation was announced on Sunday, July 26, to the Household of God Church.
“The messages of the pastor are recorded and available for those willing to crosscheck this fact. Reverend Okotie stands by his original decision not to comment on the separation regardless of what some people try to make of the matter.”
