Evangelist Eucharia Anunobi Clashes With Pastor Itua Ighodalo Inside His Church

The Pastor of Trinity House Church, Itua
Ighodalo, and members of his church got
much more than they had bargained for
recently when the he decided to organise
an award ceremony for Nollywodd
actresses. Unfortunately, the three actresses
who made it to his church – Eucharia
Anunobi, Stephnora Okereke and Doris
Simeon – have all had trouble in their
marriages at different times.

Sunday, April 15, 2012, thus became a
dramatic one for members and guests at
the Trinity House Church. Pastor Itua
“mistakenly” seized the opportunity to
insult actresses with broken marriages, and
he got an instant response from the no
nonsense Eucharia Anunobi (now an

According to the source, Pastor Itua, who
wanted to give summary of the award
initiatives before handing them over to the
actresses, said that Nollywood marriages
are breaking up everyday as a result of too
much nudity in the industry and rituals in
their movies.

He was said to have dwelt too much on the
issue of broken marriages in Nollywood
that people felt that he was directly talking
to the three actresses in his church. He
allegedly stated that he wanted to redeem
them from broken marriages and that was
the reason of the award.

The actresses were said to have told each
other that Pastor Itua seems to have
forgotten that his own marriage also broke
and he had to even take a second wife who
he is living with now, as he is not free from
what he accused them to be doing.

One of them was said to have told others
that Pastor Itua himself was expelled from
Redeemed Christian Church of God because
he left his first wife to marry a second
woman without any justifiable reason. After
murmuring unbearably with each other,
Eucharia Anunobi (the Evangelist) refused to
keep quiet.

When the time came for her to collect her
award from the pulpit, Eucharia decided to
voice out in defense and against the Pastor.
She was said to have disclosed that she will
like to correct the notion that it is only
Nollywood marriages that are breaking up.

She indicated that she knew marriages of
people who are not stars that had broken,
that she knew pastors whose marriages
had broken as well as ordinary Nigerians.
She was said to have asked the pastor,
“How can you say that Nollywood
marriages are breaking everyday? When
you marry wrong wife, the marriage will
break. When you marry the wrong man
also, your marriage will break”.

Speaking further she said, “Mine broke not
because I wanted it to break. No sane
person would marry hoping that the
marriage would break. The records must be
set straight and not give people wrong
impressions about us because as I stand
today, I am shining light and ambassador of
God in the film industry”.

According to the source, anger was said to
fill the faces of Trinity House Church
members when their pastor derailed from
his message and focused attention on
Nollywood marriages, but they took to
clapping when Eucharia was correcting
their pastor.

Immediately she finished her bitter remarks,
Evangelist Eucharia Anunobi was said to
have moved straight to the Pastor greeted
him and left the church premises with other
actresses without sitting down again.
