Zeigbo started his career playing with Nigerian teams NEPA Lagos and then Enugu Rangers. On August 7, 1997 he made his debut with the Nigerian national team in a match against Cameroon, also scoring a goal during the game.[2] He then moved to Europe, joining Legia Warsaw and immediately scoring a winning goal in his debut, a Polish Supercup match against Widzew Lodz.[2]

He was then noticed by Venezia scouts and signed by the arancioneroverdi, then playing in Serie A, in 1998. However Zeigbo failed to break into the first team and was immediately relegated into the reserves and successively loaned out to United Arab Emirates side Al Ain, Libyan club Al-Ahly and Serie C1 team L'Aquila. In 2002, he returned to Venezia, only marking three appearances as a substitute before being sold to Serie C2 side Belluno on January 2003.[2] After two difficult seasons and a number of serious injuries, Zeigbo left professional football and moved to Eccellenza Veneto amateurs Prix Camisano in 2005, leaving them in 2007 to sign for Eccellenza Sardinia side A.S.D. Villasimius, joining former Internazionale and Cagliari player Fabio Macellari.[2]
