The marriage of Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor a fiery Pentecostal pastor is in crisis, ENigeria Newspaper can now report exclusively.

According to an investigation by ENigeria Newspaper, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the founder and senior pastor of Word of Life Church in Warri, Delta State, has moved out of his matrimonial home to be free of his wife, Helen Oritsejafor.

Mama Helen Oritsejafor, as she is affectionately known among Congregants of the Church, was formerly in charge of administrative duties in the charge and reigned supreme as the wife of the Church’s founder.

On the condition of anonymity, some church members told ENigeria Newspaper that “Mama” has been physically attacking Papa Ayo Oritsejafor on a regular basis recently.

“She has been attacking Papa Ayo each time he came back home from Church and it’s no longer funny.


“Papa had to move out of their matrimonial home and camped in an unknown location for fear of his life because she has made some threats too”.

Helen Oritsejafor who ceased attending church services for a while until last Sunday when she resumed, according to ENigeria Newspaper sources had relied on her informants to feed her with information about what was going on in the Church, which she then reportedly used against her husband.

Another member who spoke to us said, “they have been at logger head since 2020, when mama Helen left the house to United Kingdom before some top members went and plead on papa’s behalf for her to come back home”.

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor married Helen in 1997, precisely 13 months after his first wife, Stella, died. Together with Stella they founded Word of Life church together on November 15, 1987.

Stella passed away in March 1996 as a result of diabetes complications and afterwards he married Helen.


After years of waiting for the fruit of the womb, Helen gave birth to three children: Ayodele Joseph, Ayodeji, and Ayodeta.

The triplets are believed to be his only offspring from the two marriages.

Pastor Ayo was the first Pentecostal pastor to serve as president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), a position which he held for five years.
