Exclusive: Bank Worker who broke wife’s leg and ran to U.S begs for forgiveness after wife revoked his Visa (photos)

Do you remember John Okeikhan Edobor, the Zenith bank worker and Ivie Edobor’s ex-husband who was dragged to court in a domestic abuse lawsuit for permanently breaking his wife’s leg?

Well he’s now begging for forgiveness after his wife reportedly wrote the U.S embassy to revoke his Visa, which they did.

Recall that his wife who marked one year anniversary of the incident recently, revealed that John ran to United States.

John Okeikhan Edobor who has been stripped of everything including his job, visa reached out to Lailasblog, and here’s the open letter he wrote;

“Dear All,

This may come as a surprise but I’m writing this because I need help.

My name is John Okeikhan Edobor, former husband to Ivie Edobor. I have offended my wife and children dearly.

The repercussion of my actions is catching up with me thus my being in hiding since March in the United States. Please tell her I’m sorry and I am ready to make amends to right all my wrongs.

In my defence I had said a lot of things but that was to take the attention off what I did. I’m now living as a fugitive. I don’t know what pushed me this far. Ivie gave me all the time in the world to make amends but my pride wouldn’t let me.

I was so blinded by my relationship with my then mistress I lost sight of the diamond I had. Yes we had our differences but no woman would have taken all the pain Ivie went through because of me. She has raised my 3 daughters singlehandedly. I know my first daughter should be graduating from primary school now and I cannot be there to share in the joy.

I have lost my job, my wife and my children because of my act of violence. Ivie supported my family and I for a long time hence my wanting her back. When she wouldn’t come back to me and insisted on a divorce my anger led me to lay ambush and attack her that night but truly I didn’t expect the injury to be so bad I only wanted to scare her. I was so infuriated I got angry and struck her repeatedly on the leg.

Please help me plead with her. I was so afraid of going to jail and my mistress assisted me to relocate to the United States. I thought I was home free but Ivie wrote to the embassy telling them about the case on ground and how I jumped bail and my visa has been revoked. My life is hell now as I am now a fugitive living in hiding with no job or source of income.

Please plead with Ivie for me to drop the charges in criminal court and allow our families settle us amicably.

I am unable to come out in public. Who knows if she won’t involve Interpol at this rate.
Ivie please forgive me, I will pay for all the damages to her leg, I will take up responsibility for the children if given the chance. I apologise for the lies and slander. Please forgive me my life is in ruins.”





Bank worker

He also apologized to his mother in-law for bringing her tears and being disrespectful;


Dear Mom,

It’s really hard for me to express how deeply sorry I am to have hurt you. Words cannot describe

how making you feel disrespected and that alone has made me feel―miserable and guilty. I

wasn’t in my senses then, but that is no excuse! As a child, I was taught to respect others, even if

they were rude to me. How could I hurt you of all people? You, who never gave up on me, you

who made things happened and ensured my marriage was fruitful even in all odds. You, who

always made me realize how special I am when the world forced me to believe that I was

worthless; you, who never left me alone when I was upset or afraid.

I remember the times, you radiate with beautiful smiles made things ease out for me and my wife

and you were never tire to carry us high. And now I feel horribly guilty of doing and say all what

I said against you, blaming my anger as an excuse! I realize the fact that no matter how hard

you tried to comfort me in my pain, I pushed you away thinking that you would never

understand! But I was so wrong mom. You knew beforehand that things were not right with me,

you understood me before I could understand myself, that the path I took, did not have a happy

end. I was too busy, and too much engrossed in my own world, that I forgot that my world is

nothing without you! I realize that now, and I am terribly sorry for hurting you, for saying words

that should have never even crossed my thoughts, for taking your love, your care, and your

concern for granted.

I am really sorry, dear mom! And what makes me feel more guilty is the unconditional love that

you have for me, in spite of behaving in such a disrespectful way, your arms are always open to

hug me and make me feel safe, secure, and loved. Your smile still tells me that no matter what,

you are always happy to see me, your eyes are enough to show the love that you have for me,

and I feel I am the worst son-in- law, for bringing tears to those eyes. I love you mom, and I

realize that I am nothing without you. Your love and your blessings are the most important to me

in this world. I promise it will never happen again and I will be the son-in- law you deserve to


I really hope that you will forgive me…

I love you mom,

John Edobor.”

      Pls sir, you are still a young man. Leave your ex wife alone and go somewhere to start a new life. Both of you can share custody of the children.
      Why am I saying this?
      The state of both of you right now is bad for cohabitation. You are currently a desperate man who is afraid of facing life alone. And if you go back to her and she does not cleave to you like before,you might loose it one day and try to “scare her” just like the one that led to the loss of her legs.
      On the other hand; Your ex wife even if she forgives you will never forget, and will always harbour some bitter resentment for you. This bitterness could make her over-react one day and harm you. After all you made her to realise that she can do without you.
      My advise: Get a job. Seek her forgiveness alright. Don’t get remarried to her. Ask for shared custody of the children and provide for them fully (allow her use her money on her health; this is your permanent atonement and penance for damaging her body). Finally organise and pull yourself together, in time love and good companionship will find you again(this time, respect it).

    Oga which one do you want us or your wife to forgive? For damaging her leg or cheating and abandoning?

    If you are ask how it happened now you will say it’s the devil. The devil that was doing Yahoo when you were doing all that came to your mind.

    This guy is apologizing bcoz he has no other place to go . She shouldn’t drop any of the charges against him . He should pay for what he did to his wife. He’s saying family members should settle them Abeg they shouldn’t come and brainwash her with that marriage is better for worse bullshit o ! She should be wise and be a good example to those women in abusive marriages who are unable or scared to speak up

    I believe he should be forgiven but,that doesn’t mean the relationship should continue.Any relationship that could or has lead to such physical abuse and injury is not worth it.If you don’t forgive those who have offended you,they would unintentionally be controlling your life.Any time you hear their names or see their pictures you get emotionally disturbed.

  21. Edwin Eddreamz Chinedu Azubuko

    July 16, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    He is not even sorry for the harm he has caused but rather for his visa being revoked… This one don kolo big time i swear…..

    Well, what he committed is a crime, not a civil offense, that means that the case is not between him and his wife, it is a case between him and the State of Nigeria or the police.

    He is lucky this did not happen in the US where domestic violence is taken as much serious as robbery and murder.

    I will offer no advice here, he had started a new life with his mistress who betrayed him, which betrayal is giving rise to this late hour repentance.

    I know Nigeria and Nigerians, soon they will go after the woman, even turn against her, that it was the devil and that he was man enough to confess and ask for forgiveness “what more does she want and all that crap in-between. In Nigeria, there is no criminal responsibility, everyone pins his stupidity on the devil knowing that the devil will never come out to deny that he was responsible.

    It’s a pity

    This goes to show that Nigerians are really jobless. All these letters are been forged by Ivie against John and for your info John is very ok. Ivie knows she has lost her marriage and the boy has moved on with his life else where in the world be it America or Europe. And for the woman she is accusing lives in Nigeria.

    He should keep his stupid apologies to himself, so it is now that he realise that he had the best mother in-law, assuming the wife never filed a case against him I’m sure he would have been the with no feel or remorse or whatsoever. The lady shouldn’t forgive him because if she does he will do worse. Once beaten twice shy. Stupid man

    You have not done well. You have offended God, man and the law. If you escape the judgement of man and the law, you cannot escape God’s judgement. Only insane man beats his wife.
