We have just received report that veteran Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima has just been granted bail today, April 7, 2016, after being hit with a 5-year jail term by the Court of Appeal in Lagos. The jail sentence came almost exactly 10 years after she was alleged to have collided with the car of Dr. Giwa Suraj, a staff of Lagos State Hospital, along Lekki-Epe Expressway, as a result of reckless driving on her part.
According to the Appeal Court, in a ruling delivered by Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur, Ibinabo was granted the N2 million bail pending the outcome of a suit filed by her attorney with the Supreme Court.
In recent days, the actress’ colleagues have fueled a campaign asking for mercy on her behalf. A few days ago, actor Segun Arinze took to TV to literally plead with the family of the late Dr. Giwa for forgiveness. The actor prostrated on the floor as he spoke Yoruba directed to the victim’s family.
For Ibinabo, the battle for exoneration is far from over and for the Giwas,’ justice they believe, still needs to be served.
