Politician and ex-boyfriend of actress Nkechi Blessing-Sunday, has debunked claims that former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor and his wife, Helen, fondly referred to as Mama Helen, are divorced.
A few days ago, social media was agog with reports that the 25-year-old marriage of the Oritsejafors had packed up. The reports claimed Mrs. Oritsejafor has left their matrimonial home with their kids and moved to the UK. The reports also alleged that the divorce was on grounds of infidelity.
Falegan, who is the brother of Mrs. Oritsejafor, has come out to debunk the news. He also dismissed claims of infidelity in the marriage. He wrote;
”My sister is not divorced and will never be Divorced this claim is without evidence” as some media outlets framed it, Before you share a story kindly spend a moment evaluating the evidence. Attaching our family name( falegan) to infidelity is not only disgusting but abhorrence and totally unacceptable, Falegan families are known for their strong moral principles.
I Support good journalism but I will criticise stories that are poorly researched or downright misleading. Use your media literacy to discern and amplify truths that are backed up by good evidence, Kindly desist from further lies . – opeyemi david falegan . ( mama Helens Ortisejafor blood brother) clearing the air .”
However, a check by LIB revealed that Mrs. Oritsejafor was conspicuously absent from the week-long celebration of her husband’s 50th anniversary as a clergyman in November this year.
Several clergymen including Pastor Adeboye and his wife attended the event.
Usually, Mrs. Oritsejafor would sit close to her husband on the pulpit, but during this year’s celebration, she was conspicuously absent and has been absent from church activities for a while.

On the days of the week-long anniversary celebration for her husband and his church which started Nov 6-15 2022, Mrs. Oritsejafor continued to hold her daily live prayer sessions which she calls ”Command The Day” on Facebook.
Her image was also conspicuously absent on the flyer announcing the church program.
Pastor Ayo, Mama Helen or the church are yet to make an official statement on this development.
