Reverend Chris Okotie of the Household of God Church, has cleared the air on last week’s sermon in which he allegedly descended on his ex-wife, Stephanie, purportedly describing her as a Jezebel.
Okotie, in a statement issued this on Tuesday, denied directing the sermon at the embattled Stephanie.
The cleric, in a statement, entitled: “The truth has prevailed: Agents of confusion,” issued on his behalf by Head of Media and Communications Household of God Church, Ladi Ayodeji, said “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.” It will be recalled that several media had reported Okotie’s alleged rubbishing of Stephanie in his sermon of last Sunday.
