We’ve seen cases were wife killed husband or husband killed wife. My take is that these things don’t just happen; something is wrong. What this man did to his (ex-)wife sure left me wondering.
According to one of the wife Ivie Edobor’s lawyers, Emeka Ugwuonye, Zenith Bank has fired Mr John Edobor, who is standing trial for the attempted murder of his estranged wife. The accused and some hired thugs stormed Ivie’s home and attacked the mother of his three children, leaving her with broken legs.
Read what the wife’s lawyer wrote and a brief part of the estranged wife’s story:
“This is to inform the members of DPA that I just received a call from a top official of Zenith Bank to inform me that Mr. John Edobor has been fired from Zenith Bank. They made it clear to me that the reason they did so was because of the domestic violence he committed on his estranged wife, Ivie. The call was in response to the email I sent to Zenith two days ago indicating that DPA would commence a protest on the matter. We appreciate the fact that Zenith has reached out to us. This is an important first step that Zenith has taken. We shall continue the dialogue and negotiation today to see if we can reach an agreement that will avoid the protest that is planned tomorrow.
Thank you to all DPA members who have given their support to this effort. God bless you all. And please stay tuned. All we want is justice of this lady. She is somebody’s daughter. She is somebody’s mother. And above all, she is our sister and a Member of DPA. Once you are a registered member of DPA, we shall do everything to protect you when you face challenges. We must protect Ivie Edobor and her children. It is an obligation on us.”
Two years ago Mr Edobor kicked Ivie out of his house along with her 3 daughters ages 9, 7 and 4 on the grounds that her business failed and ran into debt.
The wife had said: “He moved in with his lover at the time, who is a divorcee with a female child and my husband said she would give him a boy since i gave him 3 children who are just girls. He snapped a picture with both of them on our matrimonial bed and used it as his whatsapp dp and also posted it on facebook barely a few months after he kicked us out. I was forced to move back to my father’s house and struggled to provide for my 3 children as he completely neglected them and even took them of his medical insurance provided by his office Zenith Bank Plc.”
Most men who do things like these are under some serious ‘influence’. How sad!
