Court slaps Ibinabo Fiberesima half a decade Behind bars

On-screen character Ibinabo Fiberesima has been hammered a 5-year prison term by The Court of Appeal in Lagos on Friday. Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur conveyed the choice on Friday, saying that the appeal was shallow and needed legitimacy.

She (Ibinabo) was alleged to have crashed into the auto of a staff of Lagos State healing center, Giwa Suraj as an aftereffect of heedless driving on the Lekki-Epe Expressway in February, 2006.

The Nollywood on-screen character had as of now been fined N100,000 by a Magistrate court, a choice that was overruled by the High Court. Justice Oluwayemi of the trial Court supplanted the fine with a five year jail term, saying that the Magistrate worked out “judicial recklessness” by giving the alternative of a fine.

She appealed the case, yet as indicated by Vanguard daily paper, her appeal was rejected; in this manner showing her the way to a 5-year prison term.
