Tall, elegant and brilliant Nigerian medical doctor Isioma Ebegbodi was murdered in cold blood by her Nigerian husband in Texas state of America on Saturday March 22, 2014.She attended Queen’s College Yaba Lagos and later proceeded to University of Lagos to study Medicine
She was until her gruesome murder a medical resident physician at Marshfield clinic in Texas.
What really went wrong between a 36 year old wife and her 63 year old husband?Was she suffering in silence until the tragedy happened?So many questions with limited answers. A 63-year-old Nigerian man was later charged with murder after he confessed to the shooting to death of his wife around 3 a.m on Saturday March 22,2014 in west Harris County, Texas USA.
Martin Ebegbodi went to a neighbour’s house and asked him to call police after getting into a fight over argument and then shot his wife, 36-year-old Isioma Ebegbodi. The Harris County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the house in the 19700 block of Youpon Leaf Way and arrested Ebegbodi.
Gbemisola Boyede,former schoolmate to Isioma wrote this tribute for her on Facebook
Here I am just as I was breathing the sigh of relief that justice was done in the case of Titi Arowolo murdered by her husband in a grotesque act in their own home here in Nigeria And watching with bated breath the ongoing trial of Oscar Pistorius who shot dead his girlfriend in his luxury house in Pretoria on Valentine day
I got the rudest shock of my life that a colleague, friend, former classmate in medical school was shot dead at 3am on Saturday in Texas, United States by her own husband! This is too close home for comfort!
Someone tell me what’s going on? Why are people who professed to love forever and who vowed before God and man pulling the trigger to abruptly cut short the lives they are to protect?
How do we explain this to the innocent children who are going to be deprived for life of parental love and care? Mum is dead but dad isn’t available because he’s serving terms for killing mum?
How? How?? How???
Please if you’re in an abusive relationship riddled with domestic violence, this is the time to get out! Please stop keeping the front of happiness when you’re dying inside!
The society may not understand, we may even condemn ignorantly But you owe it a responsibility to those innocent children to be ALIVE! Please get out NOW to a safe house
I don’t want to ever mourn another victim of spousal or domestic abuse I can’t begin to describe all the emotions I’m going through. So you can only imagine what her parents, sister and children will be going through! This is so sad and how many times I’ve wished in the last 48 hours, we can turn back the hand of the clock! Rest in peace Isioma, Issy Awele Ebegbodi and I pray God comfort your children and family and us all mourning you!
It shall be well! With deep sadness, We announce the untimely passing of our dear friend and Colleague OGQC (93, “Z” set) Dr Isioma Ebegbodi Nee Unokanjo on Saturday 22nd March,2014 in Texas in the most tragic circumstances.
