Appeal Court upholds Ibinabo Fiberesima's five year jail term

Let me start from the beginning so it's easy to understand. In 2005, actress and mother of three Ibinabo Fiberesima was involved in a vehicle accident on Lekki-Epe Expressway in Lagos that cost a man his life. She vied off her lane and hit the car of a doctor, Giwa Suraj, who was a staff of Lagos state hospital. Ibinabo was arrested for dangerous and reckless driving and charged to court.

The case went to court and the Igbosere magistrate court sentenced her to five years in prison with an option of N100k fine. Ibinabo apologized to the man's family, paid the N100k fine and thought the case was over but the Lagos state government objected to the fine and took the case to a high court...

The High Court then said that the Magistrate court was reckless when they gave Ibinabo an option of fine for such an offence. The High court judge tossed out the N100k option and sentenced Ibinabo to five years in prison, saying that such an offence - reckless and dangerous driving which causes another person's death is liable to 7 years in prison. Ibinabo's N100k was subsequently given back to her.


So she and her lawyers took the case to court of Appeal, asking the court of appeal, Lagos Division, to set aside the prison sentence and restore the sentence she received from the magistrate court (N100k) but unfortunately, at the judgement that took place today March 11th, the court upheld the high court ruling and dismissed Ibinabo's appeal, saying it lacked merit.

Ibinabo was in court today and reportedly wept when judgment was passed. She and her lawyers are now heading to the Supreme court to appeal. If they fail at the Supreme Court, the AGN president will be spending the next few years in prison.

She didn't apologize to Dr Giwa's family at all! It was Daniel Wilson that went to apologize and beg the family because it was his jeep Ibinabo was driving that night. Vehicular manslaughter is 5-7yrs true, + DUI (reckless endangerment) is 11-15 in total. The judiciary system is lenient on her Abeg! She should be sentence at least 10yrs with no parole possibility. Cause she is not sober for killing Dr Giwa

Tough luck, but the law is the law. She needs to show serious remorse and not just apologizing to the family of the deceased. All these events and showmanship should reduce drastically.

Wow! I was just discussing this incident with a friend of mine last week as we discussed how some serious offenses get swept under the carpet prolly cos of the person's social status and the top shots she knows. She and her lawyers are devils, you kill someone and you want to just pay 100K and go. What about the deceased family? Do you know the deprivation they'd have faced, first from loss of fatherly love and then provision...and you want to pay 100K and be cruising around town like nothing happened. My fried, SERVE YOUR JAIL TERM!...Infact, her lawyer(s) should share the same prison room with her.

Don't drink and drive. People have been trying to avoid the real reason this case came about because Ibi is a celebrity. The Dr's family must have gone through hell over the years, while she's gone about her life, re marrying. Having extra children etc. The dead man can't and it's all because of her negligence

Celebrities abroad get jailed like every other citizen, but in Nigeria it's rare for police to even lock up a celebrity for one week. I pray Supreme Court will dismiss the case and give her a fine of 100million naira, because sending her to prision won't bring the man back, but the money can help the family of the deceased.

With the ordeal still hanging on her head like a dark cloud, couldn't she keep a low profile keep her head down?

Funny that we are all feeling sorry and sympathising and even calling on God of freedom. Kwat! lol. Probably cos she's a celebrity so we feel she shud be spared and maybe the family shud have just collected the 100k, thanked her and lick their wounds. But maybe we'll all be raining down curses if it was a mere citizen who did it. She committed a crime, she shud face it. Too bad for her kids but mommy did wrong. Too bad we live in a country where one is fine 100k for a life. Haba. If she was really remorseful when that happened, she shud have really begged and offered the family more than 100k. Was the Doctor not collecting more than that as salary? What can that amount do now that he's gone? Cover rent? Fees? or what? You kill someone's husband and maybe father sef and you come and offer 100k as if they were beggers? Evens beggars sef. She has done wrong, she shud face it kawai

Every court hierarchy has a maximum limit of fine it can impose. The case was held in a magistrate court (the lowest of all) so i am not too surprised 100k was the fine as at 2005.The question rily should be if the magistrate court had the power to conduct a case that involved death.

obasi martins said...

From 100k to life case! Well, sometimes, we have no control over how it will change an when and with whom.

I think she should have really begged the family and try to keep in touch. If she did that a the court still goes ahead to send her to five years imprisonment, then, we should look at what th law says for those who commit such offence.
