David Falegan, younger brother of Pastor Mrs. Helen Orisejafor on Friday took to his Instagram handle to puncture stories making the rounds that his elder sister’s marriage of 25 years to Pastor Ayo Orisejafor has crashed.
The social media has in the last few days been inundated with the divorce story of the duo of Pastor Orisejafor and his wife Helen.
The reports claimed Mrs. Oritsejafor had moved out of her matrimonial home with their kids to the UK. The reports also alleged that the divorce was on grounds of infidelity.
What Falega wrote on Instagram handle
But Falegan said on his Instagram handle said his sister is not divorced and will never be divorced.
He wrote further, “This claim is without evidence as some media houses frame it. Before you share any story kindly spend a moment evaluating the evidence. Attaching our family name (Falegan) to infidelity is not only disgusting but abhorrent and totally unacceptable. Falegan family are known for their strong moral principle.”
He said he would always support good journalism but added however that “I will criticize stories that are poorly researched or downright misleading.”
He urged journalists to “use your media literacy to discern and amplify truth that is backed up by good evidence”
Though media reports lack some credibility, there are indications that Mrs. Oritsejafor fondly called Mama Helen by the church members has not been with her husband lately. Her continuous absence from the church fueled the rumour of their divorce.
Pastor Orisejafor had on Friday, December 9 posted a picture of his ministration on Thursday at the Omega Fire Ministry of Apostle Johnson Suleman. His wife’s pictures are not in any of his latest posts on his Instagram page. It may however be too early in the day to state that the marriage has crashed.
Orisejafor a former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria married Helen in 1997 about 13 months after Stella his first wife died of diabetic complications according to reports. The duo have lived happily in the eyes of the public. They share the pulpit together during most ministrations in the church. They often display public affection for one another.
