Some days back, the government upgraded the charges against Mr John Edobor from grievous bodily harm to ‘attempted murder.
Now, Zenith bank have sacked Mr John, who back in September, broke the leg of his estranged wife Ivie Edobor after she filed for divorce against him.One of Mr Ivie Edobor’s lawyers, Emeka Ugwuonye, revealed this on Facebook…He wrote:
“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.”
