Photos: Victim of domestic violence, Ivie Edobor arrived court yesterday on crutches

Domestic violence victim, Ivie Edobor arrived the Magistrate Court, Surulere, on November 10th, where her estranged husband is on trial for assaulting her. The mother of three was brutally attacked by her husband, John Edobor last September, following their failed marriage.

Taking to her Facebook page after the trial, she thanked her friends, family and all who came to the court to show their support...
 

"Thank you all for you overwhelming support today at the court. So many people hadn't met me before or seen the level of my injuries and incapacitation. I pray for full recovery and the ability to walk again. My DPA family came in their numbers too. God bless you all"

Her lawyer and activist, Emeka Ugwuonye has this to say about the trial:

"First thing this morning, we were at the Magistrate Court, Surulere, to stand for Ivie Edobor. This is a case which means so much to DPA. It is a case where we need to take a clear stand to show that we oppose domestic violence in all its form.
Being a criminal trial, it was a case where I would play only a marginal role. But I wanted that marginal role to be definitive in impact. First move: I met with the Prosecutor to demand that the charge be amended to attempted murder, instead of assault, that is has been. Second, I demanded that steps be taken to stop the man from continuing to threaten Ivie. These two were accomplished. Charges will be amended and upgrade to attempted murder.
Next: my ultimate objective is to be allowed to take over the prosecution of the man. I want to conduct the prosecution so that I ensure he is convicted and sent to jail for life. We are working on that.
It was nice to see the brave Ivie Edobor in court today. She is strong in spirit, but obviously in serious pains from the injury the monster caused her. Initially when the case started, the man was laughing in the dock. But when he realized what was happening, that he was about to face serious charge of attempted murder, there was no smile on his face, but there was a big smile in my heart. 
 
I was pleased to meet so many wonderful people - lawyers, other professionals and well-wishers, who came to court to show their solidarity."

No doubt the man messed up . But there is something I don't understand, you have kids with this man and your aim is to send him to jail for life. But wait again, how will your kids feel to be associated with kids from a family where their mum sent their Dad to jail. Human ego eeh. I hope non of your children grows up to resent you for this.

That's stupid reasoning. He committed a crime and should do time. End of stock story. Keep your primordial sentiments to yourself.

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous at 11:52am, so you can do the same and expect your wife not to drag you to prison via court sentence? Next time, he may kill her after attempted murder like this. Justice must be served to a barbarian. If you don't want your wife anymore divorce her and let her go in peace and not 'cripple' her.

its a pity

parrot said...

So she should forgive and forget Until he comes back to kill her or the kids?

Anonymous said...

He did not know he had kids when he was breaking her leg right? No room for sentiments. When you act like an animal and in your adult mind, you must be prepared to face the full consequences of your actions. The children are better off without a father who lacks the sense that God gave a rat.

Sandra said...

Pls what is the address of the court? I want to attend the next sitting and give my solidarity to Ivie. I am a strong feminist and i want to see that man that did this to her rot in jail

Sam said...

If you have been following the story, you would have read where they said the man drove the woman and her three children out of the house because they were all female children. If he cared about his three daughters, he wont have driven them away together with their mother. He then came back after two years without asking how they were feeding or paying school fees and he broke their mother's legs and she was their only source of income. Do you think such children will bother if their dad went to jail?

Akinolu said...

If you were still in love with this woman after two years of seperation, you would have simply begged her back instead of using force and violence to get her back

The lady married the wrong man. It's a pity

She cant even wear shoes. The man really destroyed her legs oh. I hope she will be able to walk again

Stephen said...

Fine woman. I can see why the man doesnt want to let go. He will rather break her legs so that nobody can have her since he cannot have her. Selfish man

All of you saying that she should go ahead with this case are butch of fools who could not manage their homes hence you are out there in the cold prostituting all round and you want Ivie to take to that kind of street life and be sleeping around from one man to another.

Ivie should know now that this people are her enemies and stop this fake and wayward living of undue, cheap and unnecessary public disgrace. Were are your parent? I hope they are still alive?. This is a shameful act.

Vivian.....

Ivie I never knew you were so much like this. You borrowed money from me and this same man called John paid and because of your wickedness and atrocities you were injured as result of a fight between John and your secret lover man called Matthew who is even married and today you and the guy does not want his name stated, we all in Zenith know the truth. The Matthew impregnated you and you wanted to give John the child as his. After the children had told him about your romance with the man, John demanded for a DNA conducted you started reacting and you went and kill the five month old twins you were pregnant with. Has court jailed you? Abortion is an offence in Nigeria, are you not aware?. Park well and go hide your face in shame. Stupid woman.

I am a member of Ivie Imobhio-Edobor’s family, 2nd cousins to be precise. We, Ivie’s family have since known of Ivie’s Psychiatric disorder since she was a teenager. Every single member of our family knows this. Ivie was diagnosed with Münchausen syndrome at a very early age.

Munchausen syndrome is a psychiatric factitious disorder wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves. Munchausen syndrome fits within the subclass of factitious disorder with predominantly physical signs and symptoms, but patients also have a history of recurrent hospitalization, travelling, and dramatic, extremely improbable tales of their past experiences.

Ivie was match made with John by both their families and no one informed John’s family of Ivie’s disorder. It has been one problem after another, which I have been personally involved in settling, since the day they got married.

It’s a shame to see John in such a mess when Ivie’s entire family knows of her disorder. I have urged her mother, father, sisters and Aunts to come forward and end this mayhem immediately. I have give them a time frame which if they do not adhere to, I will air the families dirty linen in public.

Ivie Imobhio attended Federal Government Girls College, Abuloma and University of Lagos, Akoka. Both institutions have documentary evidence of her disorder. Staff and ex-students can give accounts of episodes of Ivie’s disorder.

Ivie Edobor has worked for Airtel Nigeria and Stanbic IBTC, and management and staff of both companies have documentary evidence and personal experiences respectively of Ivie’s disorder.

Contact me via email if you need to see government identification to verify my identity.

Thank you.
