Revered cleric, Pastor Joshua Iginla of the Champions Royal Assembly has announced the end of his marriage to his wife, Yemisi over infidelity on both sides.
The preacher who made the shocking announcement on Sunday said:”When my wife cheated and had an ‘unholy’ child, I covered her up but when mine happened, she started blackmailing me”.
“This is why I urge us to pray for our leaders. Its not easy for me to come out in public to say this, but I warned my wife, she didn’t listen rather she preferred to turn me to a laughing stock.
“I had serious battles in my marriage, we covered it up. We would have not gotten to this point today If my wife had listened to me when we had this battle.I also went out and had a child outside wedlock and then it became a battle in the family. This battle has become a big one and some men of God are taking advantage of it. It has pushed me to this point that I am confessing to the world”.
The video has generated diverse reactions from Nigerians on social media.

@Omololami: Why will he be in Nigeria and his wife abroad? She doesn’t even worship in the church but she is still their church mummy…hmmmm. ok ooo. Married people who live under the same roof cheat not to talk of long distance marriage. Body no be wood and pastors are human too. God will intervene.
@Labapraise: Oh 😭😭😭 i almost cried. I pray God heal your heart sir. God bless you
@Iyawobobo: This is so sad, I’m happy that he was able to come out to the public rather than die in silence, I know a pastor whose wife doesn’t even give him food not to talk of sex yet he can’t do anything because his a PASTOR. God help us all
@OfficialChelly: He is only human and he is owning up to his fault willing to risk it..God bless you sir,he is better than some that do and pretend..God heal you.
@Mrdandidi: Advice to unmarried people don’t ever believe it’s Just God that makes marriage work but when you marry you best friend especially in honest foundation, only one word I take he’s separating from her because he wants to live long so many married couples have gone to early graves because of wrong partners it’s always better to walk away and remain alive especially the ladies
