Esther Egbon shortly before she was murdered gained admission to study nursing at the Southend University – she had been working as a healthcare assistant at King George Hospital London
On August 8, a promising nurse, 30-year-old Esther Egbon, was killed in Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham, London. The same day the body of 36-year-old Igie Ehrabor was also found on nearby Gosfield Road. Igie had taken his own life after stabbing Esther Egbon to death. Esther, reports indicate who was a healthcare assistant at the King George Hospital, was a frontline healthcare worker in the heat of the Coronavirus pandemic in the UK.
Pat Egbon, Esther’s sister immediately set up a fundraiser for the deceased’s four children who are aged between three and 10. The fund according to Pat is to help care for the children. Igie and Esther had all four children together before their marriage hit the rocks. So far the sum of £2,765 had been raised in the campaign, with more appeal to the public for help to ensure the kids are well catered for and not affected by the stigma of the incident.
Pat noted that Igie had lived with her sister for 16 years without a job and was addicted to video games. “After struggling for 16 good years as the bread winner taking care of four children and her lazy Igie, Esther finally got admission to do nursing at Southend University with an upgrade to midwifery.  This progress was too much for Igie to handle and he decided to move out of their rented house.”
“He promised to get a fixed income job but didn’t. My sister was a permanent night shift worker yet Igie couldn’t look for a daytime job for a fixed monthly income but used his life to play video games and watched movies 247 for 16 years. When she decided to move on with her life he horribly murdered her,” Pat wrote.
