A full-blown fight ensued between the couple which ended in their house being set on fire. Their kids were lucky to have escaped in time but Bimbo was not so lucky as she was badly burnt in the fire and had to be rushed to the hospital.

She was rejected by several hospitals before one eventually accepted to treat her, and she’s said to be in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the moment.

Well, this is not the first time the couple are in the news for domestic violence as three years ago, Bimbo slipped into coma after she was badly beaten by her husband when she was eight months pregnant for their fifth child.

However, on October 4 2020, IVD disclosed that they have reconciled and set aside their differences days after she wrote an exposé detailing how she had been a victim of domestic abuse for 19 years.

Following the incident, she kept dropping subtle hints on her social media page that she was still being abused by her husband.

Just recently in January 2022, Bimbo shared a cryptic note believed to be directed at her husband saying, “I gave you more than I gave myself, so loyal to you that I betrayed myself.”
