Ibinabo Fiberesima Sentenced to Five Years Imprisonment
Things are not really bright for Ibinabo Fiberesima, the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria,AGN, who has been sentenced to five years imprisonment yesterday by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of a Lagos High Court. She is answering for the death of one Dr Giwa Suraj whom she killed in an auto accident along Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos years back.
The actress had gone to the Court of Appeal to challenge the jail term given to her by a Lagos High Court,and her lawyer, Nnaemeka Amaechina, had urged the court to set aside the sentence and restore the decision of the Magistrate Court which sentenced her to a N100, 000 fine.
The appellate court dismissed the appeal and affirmed the High Court's judgment. Ibinabo had taken to her facebook page to ask Nigerians to pray her. “Pray me ,” she wrote.
Ibinabo's PA confirmed that the once cheerful actress has been speechless since the judgment was delivered.
According to her, “My boss has been feeling unwell since the judgment was delivered. We are afraid it doesn't affect her health. She just had an operation.”
