It has been reported that Odion Jude Ighalo and wife, Sonia Ighalo has been matrimonial squabble and has been alleged that Lilian Esoro is the cause.
Rumours have been that their marriage has been in crisis since Odion completed his multi-million naira building in Lagos which he has often visited without Sonia (who was allegedly cheating on him) and their three children who are based in London.
Though, they did not officially speak about it then in 2019, their actions would give them away as they stopped giving out marriage vibes which they usually do together. In 2018, the Ighalos wowed Nigerians with their beautiful Christmas photos. It was during Christmas same year that the footballer, who plays for Shanghai Shenhua in China, celebrated the opening of his mansion and gifts his beautiful wife a brand new Range Rover Sport to celebrate her as well. He posted pictures with friends and family members during the housewarming party.
His wife, Sonia, had also taken to her Instagram page to share videos of the mansion and the celebration on her Instagram story. The beautiful lady also prayed that God should continue to bless her husband. As they used to be the envy of Christmas photos, last year, they never posted any picture of their family to celebrate Yuletide. Rather, the ex-Super Eagles star posted photos of himself alone to wish his fans a happy new year. They also did not celebrate each other on their 10th wedding anniversary last year which was looked out for.
However they did celebrate during their ninth wedding anniversary with a dinner in 2018. It was star studded with celebrity musicians, comedians and actors. Commemorating their ninth wedding anniversary, Ighalo posted a cute picture from the night party with the mother of his kids and captioned it with a simple message: Happy anniversary to us#emo… @ighalojude “Happy anniversary to us.” The anniversary message was completed with hashtags such as “#9years,” “#nov14,” “#blessed” and “#Godisthegreatest.”
Lilian Esoro on the other hand has allegedly been going out with the footballer which has also sparked outrage on social media.
