Mum-of-3 cries for justice after her estranged husband, a Zenith Bank Staff, damaged her leg

When love goes soar, it obviously turns brutal and that's the case of this Nigerian mother of three, Ivie Edobor is crying for justice after being allegedly brutally assaulted by her estranged husband, John Edobor, a Zenith Bank employee.
When she started divorce proceedings against him after the break down of their marriage, he allegedly battered her legs with iron rods and shattered the bones so badly that she has to have titanium plates and screws inserted in her body to keep her leg in place, and as of now she still hasn't regained the use of her right leg, while he still walks about freely.

Ivie tells her horrible story below. Graphic photos attached

Her story reads: "Dear friend,

To shed more light on my ordeal, this is my story.

Two years ago my husband kick me out of his house along with my 3 daughters ages 9, 7 and 4. 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 off his medical insurance provided by his office, Zenith Bank Plc.

After much struggle, I finally got back on my feet. Got a great job, enrolled my kids in a new school and rented an apartment for my 3 kids and I.

About Easter time this year he decided he wants to be part of my children’s life again. I allowed him access to the children as I felt we could be civil to each other for the sake of our children. At this time, I had started putting my documentation together for the divorce process. Early hours of June 19th, on my way back from a function, a friend had parked right in front of the gate of my apartment to press the bell for the gateman to open the gate and let me into the compound when suddenly he was rushed at and attacked by a man waving an object.

The first impression was that it was an armed robber trying to rob us. My friend, (a man) pushed him away but he came charging back. At this point, I looked out the opened door and realized it was John Edobor my enstrange husband. Before we could react a group of area boys showed up but rather than saving us from the assailant, they joined him.

The proceeded to be my friend on the floor giving John the opportunity to focus his attack on me. He used a metal bar(wheel spanner/ metal rod) to try hitting me on the head through the opened drivers door but I shielded it. Not satisfied with that, he turned to the passengers door dragged out to the floor. I landed on the floor with my legs extended where he proceeded to hit me on the leg continuously with the metal.
When he was satisfied he was about going back to join the area boys who had gathered my friend when my neighbour who had heard my screams for help and seen from his window a man striking someone on the floor thinking it was an armed robber, numbed down his balcony with a machete to save whoever was being attacked.

On getting down he was faced with my enstrange husband whom he had prevented from entering my compound without my permission on 2 occasions so he recognised him. It was at that point he overpowered John. The area boys recognised him as a member of the security team for the street and backed off my friend.

By that time I couldn’t stand up and my leg was bleeding profusely. I was rushed to the hospital where my jeans was torn off my leg to see the nature of my injury. The injury was so severe that my broken bone torn through my skin puncturing an artery in the process.

Almost 3months and 2 surgeries later, I have titanium plates and screws to keep my leg in place and I am unable to use my right leg. I still have my 3 children to care for and my life is at a stand still. The perpetuator was charged to court and released on bail 3 days later. Now he moves around freely carrying on with his life. Now is it wrong for me to cry for Justice."


  1. What a Wicked World. God of vengeance will surely fight for you

  2. Although she didn't tell us what she did that made the stupid husband kick her out with three children, regardless, she doesn't deserve this cruel treatment. He doesn't even care about his children. very heartless man

  3. A beast in human skin! Hope d woman gets justice

  4. Imagine!!! What kinda generation is this?

  5. This Ivie lady has such a coloured past. A very long history of lies, lies and many more lies. She pretended to be married when she worked with in Econet (now Airtel) at the call center. With one story after another, she borrowed money from all of us and never repaid. We donated money for her "so called pregnancy" medical bills. Her tummy was growing daily before our very eyes. Her water even broke in the office. Guess what at the end of the day we found out she was never pregnant and the man she claimed was her husband came to say he was never married to her. Econet disengaged her because her lies were found out.

  6. I'm not sure her husband, John even knew about this because it was way before he met her. She was similarly thrown out of Stanbic for other sharp practices.

    Last I heard she owes a multitude of people over N50 Million. I hope she is paying her debt with all the monies she is getting from all this public support. She has caused her many creditors a lot of heartache.

  7. What broke the marriage was all this debt. Creditors were beating down their matrimonial home as early as 5 a.m. She could never explain why she asked for the money or more importantly what she used it for. John bailed her out as much as he could. She went as far as borrowing from his colleagues and stealing his zenith customers numbers from his phone and contacting them directly asking to borrow money and asking them not to tell John. John was forced to pay back the monies she 'borrowed" from his colleagues and customers in order to save his job.

  8. A month after the separation, she claimed she was pregnant with twins. Poor John was then ready to reconcile. Somewhere along the line, John found out that she had a long term lover MATTHEW AGBAIRE. They both went for counseling at St Dominic’s Church. John was ready to forgive for the sake of his children as the Church advised his only caveat was that DNA must be done on the pregnancy to ensure it was his. DNA can be performed on a pregnancy! It is believed that Ivie was not too sure so herself and Matthew terminated the pregnancy. She later claimed she had a miscarriage at almost 6 months.

  9. Matthew Agbaire is her nemesis. She can’t seem to do without him. He has the looks and he sabi the thing!
    Ivie and John still despite all that had happened, attempted reconciling at the beginning of the year. She helped John move into his new abode where they were eventually to move into as a family to start afresh in a new part of Lagos. John was spending time sleeping over at her place too. Only for that un-fateful night brought about by the innocent phone call of a child to her father, that they were alone at home with the young relative house help of about 13 years. I believe the oldest of the 3 girls is about 9 years old.

  10. Unbeknownst to Ivie; John was in the house with the kids when he called her and she said she was at home and that the girls were sleeping. He decided to stay outside and await her return, to once again catch her in a lie. Ivie and Matthew drove in way after midnight. Of course a fighting match ensued between husband and wife. Matthew Agbaire, a married man with 2 children, stepped in as the gallant boyfriend. A fight ensued between the 2 men. Matthew who works with Centrix Construction was the one who brought out the crowbar from his car to use on John. Ivie stepped into the mix and got hit during the scuffle. People around stepped in to restrain all parties. Ivie opted to be taken to the hospital by her loverboy Matthew Agbaire

  11. To date all her medical bills have been paid. She never needed financial help from the larger society for her bills or for her kids. John pays school fees and has receipts. So all of you donating to her “cause” are being duped. You are just continuing to feed her incessant and dangerous need for money. What she does with it nobody ever knows. Its free money for Ivie, left right and centre. Christmas has come early for Ivie.
    Ivie use it to pay all your many creditors please and for once think of your children. What you are doing to them by destroying their father’s life, is it fair? Will they really forgive you for they will one day know the truth!
