Lagos Pastor, Ex-Lover At War Over Viral Sex Video

The Presiding Pastor of Zionwealth of Life Assembly in the Lekki area of Lagos State, Apostle Chris Omatsola, and his former lover, Tamaratokoni Okpe, have clashed over a sex video that was leaked on the Internet, The PUNCH is reporting.
While Okpe, who hails from Delta State, accused Omatsola of releasing the video to force her into marriage with him, the cleric told PUNCH Metro that the video was leaked to blackmail him.
The PUNCH correspondent gathered that the two estranged lovers dated for about seven months in 2018, during which they had sexual intercourse, which was filmed.
However, shortly after things fell apart between them, the lurid video emerged on the Internet.
Okpe, in her account of the incident, said the pastor had threatened to leak the video after she quit the relationship.
She said: “I met Apostle Chris Kevwe Omatsola, the founder and pastor of Zionwealth of Life Assembly (Zola) in Lekki, Lagos, and we started dating in February 2018. It quickly escalated to a sexual relationship and when we had sex the first time, he told me that we should make it right by getting married. We continued our romance and one of the things we did together was recording videos and taking pictures of our intimacy.
“I informed my mum about a guy coming for my hand in marriage and she said she was going to pray about it. Everything was rosy until he became violent and constantly beat me up till I bled. He came begging after each episode and I forgave him.”
She said by July, she had become indifferent about the relationship.
Okpe alleged that the cleric’s temperament and constant assault of her also discouraged her.
She said: “In August, I called off the relationship and I was surprised that he accepted it in good faith initially, given his penchant for violence.
“Sometime in August, he asked that we meet to talk on platonic grounds. During the meeting, he became hostile when he realised that I was no longer interested in him. He also refused to drop me off at home. He beat me up, seized my phone, forced me to unlock it and retrieved contacts from it just to track who I was seeing.
“That was the final straw for me; so I never saw him again till September when he showed up at my place, crying and begging. I refused to fall for his tricks and there was no further communication from both sides till sometime early October when he apologised again.
“On October 13, he contacted me with an anonymous number via WhatsApp with pictures, videos and threat messages, saying if I did not come back to him, he was going to release everything.”
She noted that she was surprised when at 7pm that day, people called her attention to the nude video and pictures circulating on the Internet.
The Computer Science graduate said the case was reported to the police and Omatsola was arrested the following day.
She said: “He said now that my pictures and videos were out there, no man would want to look my way again; that it was best we got married.
“After the arrest, in the presence of his dad, he confessed to releasing the pictures and video. He apologised to me, my family, his family and the public. This was recorded on October 19, 2018 and I am in possession of the video. He even accepted to pay damages.”
Okpe, who noted that she regretted the relationship, said she had faced ridicule from friends and family members
