It is being proved right after all that the other side of man is usually dirty. This is coming as a result of a new discovery recently uncovered about the respected late man of God, Archbishop Benson Idahosa, founder of Church of God Mission. News of the People exclusively gathered that that Bishop Margaret Idahosa, the acclaimed wife of the late Bishop was not the only woman who bore him kids. There is another child he had outside wedlock and the child in question is christened Stella and will be celebrating her 44th birthday this year. The lady is equally married to a pastor with The Redeemed Christian Church of God. The story of Stella is a well- guarded secret in the household of Idahosa and in particular, Pastor Ayo Oristejafor was said to have played a major role in the whole alleged secrecy. Pastor Oristejafor, according to insiders, was said to have helped the late Bishop’s family from disintegration when Bishop Margaret was to release a book she wrote some years back. Stella, popularly called Madam Toritsemotse in her husband’s church in Ireland, was also said to have written a book titled “The Secret Behind the Gospel” which was prevented from going public by members of the Idahosa family led by Pastor Oritsejafor. The book, according to insiders, made attempts to reveal her (Stella’s) paternity and most importantly how she was subjected to humiliation and disengagement from her immediate family. The book, till date, remains unreleased and may never see the light of the day. Sensing a kind of special relationship between her and Pastor Oritsejafor, her husband was once quoted to have said that he has three people that inspire him, and they are Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor who his first son was named after and his wife Stella. Stella seems to have toed the line of her father as she now oversees her husband’s parish, called Fountain of Love located in Nass, Co-Kildare in the Republic of Ireland. Late Idahosa, who was affectionately called “Papa” by his many followers, was the founder of The Church of God Mission International, with headquarters in Benin City, Edo State. He is often referred to as the father of Pentecostalism and televangelism in Nigeria, while many notable pastors like Ayo Oritsejafor, Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Felix Omobude, Fred Addo and Chris Oyakhilome are his protégés. His widow, Margaret Idahosa is the current presiding Bishop of the Church.
