Popular actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima was on Friday, March 11, 2016 sentenced to 5 years imprisonment by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi. Ibinabo was visibly apprehensive throughout the proceeding and burst into tears immediately the judgment was delivered.
Actress Ibinabo Fiberesima has been slammed a 5-year jail term by The Court of Appeal in Lagos on Friday. Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur delivered the decision on Friday, saying that the appeal was shallow and lacked merit.
She (Ibinabo) was alleged to have knocked down a staff of Lagos State hospital,Giwa Suraj as a result of reckless driving on the Lekki-Epe Expressway in February, 2006.
The Nollywood actress had already been fined N100,000 by a Magistrate court, a decision that was overruled by the High Court. Justice Oluwayemi of the trial Court replaced the fine with a five year jail term, saying that the Magistrate exercised “judicial recklessness” by giving the option of a fine.
She appealed the case, but according to Vanguard newspaper, her appeal was dismissed; thus setting her on the path to a 5-year jail term.
