Ibinabo’s Fiberesima's 5-Year Jail Term Upheld By The Appeal Court

The Court of Appeal in Lagos today dismissed an appeal by Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima challenging a jail term slammed on her by a Lagos High Court. Ibinabo was sentenced to five years imprisonment by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of a Lagos High Court for reckless driving which resulted in the death of a hospital staff.




 She was alleged to have driven her car recklessly on the Lekki-Epe Expressway and knocked down a man, Giwa Suraj. The deceased was said to be a staff of a Lagos state’s hospital. A Magistrate court (court of first instance) had earlier given the appellant an option of N100,000 fine for the offence. 


The judgment of the magistrate was,however, set aside by the high court which replaced the option of fine with a jail term. Dissatisfied, Fiberesima had filed an appeal through her lawyer, Mr Nnaemeka Amaechina, urging the court to set aside the five-year sentence. Delivering judgment on Friday, the appellate court dismissed Fiberisima’s appeal and affirmed the decision of the Lagos High Court.


 In a unanimous decision delivered by Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur, the court held that the trial Magistrate Court lacked the discretion to have granted Ibinabo an option of fine having been convicted. The court further held that the appeal lacked merit and consequently dismissed it. Other members of the panel are Justice U.I. Ndukwe-Anyanwu (presiding) and Justice Tijani Abubakar. 


It will be recalled that the appellate court had earlier ordered the appellant to appear before it when judgement was to be delivered. Counsel to the appellant, Amaechina, said the judgment will be challenged at the Supreme Court, adding that a notice of appeal had already been filed. Justice Oluwayemi of the trial court had held that the magistrate exercised “judicial recklessness” when he gave the convict an option of fine. 


The court noted that the trial Magistrate must have misdirected himself based on the allocutus made by the counsel to the convict that she is a working mother. Oluwayemi had held that Sections 28 of the Traffic Law under which the accused was convicted did not give an option of fine. She held that “when a term of imprisonment is mandatory for an offence the court cannot and should not give an option of fine.” She insisted that the fine did not serve the purpose of justice in the case and subsequently ordered that the N100, 000 be returned to the appellant.

I called my friend Ibinabo but she was not available to speak with me because they have sent her to Kirikiri already.I am really really heart broken right now.

Omg!
Was she drunk while driving or her village witches had finally caught her?
Will the 100k raise the dead?
I really felt bad for her
What if the deceased family withdraw the case, will she still go to jail? Maybe her family member should go plead on her behalf(omg what do I know) . She going to jail cant even raise the dead.
This is really devil at work.
May God save her and may the soul of the deceased continue to rest in peace. Amen

Can you see where Greed has led you too? You were given an option of Fine to pay just 100k then you go die of guilty conscience.. Yet you refuse that cheap offer and wanted to even pay nothing and get your freedom.. Come to think of it.. If the appeal had been won. How will you sleep at night?
5years too small.. you should have been hanged allong with Rev King..

You are a bastard.. I pray one of your child is Knocked down by an agbero who has taking sk and codeine.. so the court can give him an option of fine to pay 20k or 5yrs..
You aint even a Learner.. you were under the influence of Strong Drink.. Yet you went to court of Appeal cuz you didt want to pay 100k... Ogbeni Jonathan is not the President again ooooo.....

I pray they rape you in Kirikiri.

Manslaughter is not just a case against the victim's family but against the State. So the family of the deceased cannot withdraw the case. Na Lagos state she follow get kpata. I really feel for her, this can happen to anybody drunk or not. I pray the Supreme court let her go even if she has to pay 5m naira fine. This case has been on for over ten years Abeg!

Anonymous said...

James why are you tribalistic? If the doctor she killed was your brother how will you feel paying a fine of 100k. I am sure the judgement was delayed because she was close to people in power in the last dispensation. Nigerians please let us always put sentiment apart in situations like these n put ourselves in the shoes of the family that lost their loved ones.

Very good. This is good news. Justice! Finally!
She was living like there's no tomorrow, knowing well that every time she's in the news the only thing the deceased family will feel is grief. After a crime of this magnitude, you would expect a reasonable person to lay low and seek forgiveness from the family of the deceased. No! You killed a man, you decided to flaunt yourself again.
Go and enjoy kirikiri.

I feel really sad about this but DUI and manslaughter in the process is really painful. I feel really bad for her but the law has to take it's course. This is delayed justice because she should have finished her time by now and moved on with her life,but they kept stretching d thing. Now she has to leave her kids and new husband to do time. I just hope he sticks by her at this time. I hope.

Now this is d height, it makes no sense to u that a family lost its breadwinner and d children of the deceased may face hardships because of the woman's reclkess driving, did yoruba people drive her car for her? Or did they set her up? So she shouldnt face d consequences of her actions because d deceased is yorba? Lest we offend d igbos and non yorubas? How inhumane can u be? Ur hate for the yoruba tribe will be your downfall in jesus name. May u experience worse sorrows than what dis woman put d family of the deceased thru in the hands of your fellow igbos so that u will understand that humans commit crimes and not tribes. U claim that yprubas are everything bad, but u r an example that no tribe has monopoly of evil. God put u among the igbos to show that foolishness abounds around the world not juat wit the people u hate, u r a cursed man for thinking such when a person's life is at stake. Big disgrace to humanity! Stella, pls post it. Tnx.

James aka money maker, your stupidity knows no bounds.
Infact your brain cells are non existent.
I know your Yoruba father dumped ur mother and didn't accept the pregnancy, dats why you spew thrash.
I am sorry, I really am not sorry for Ibinabo, when people committ crimes, whether by mistake or not, bcos I know ibinabo didn't do this purposely. But when you drink and drive recklessly, you need to be punished accordingly. The man that died is not a goat, he had a family, had kids. Those kids will be fatherless because smone decided to not do the right thing.
That guy being a medical doc may be the person responsible for his family, his aged parents.
Let's leave sentiment aside Stella. In Germany or any developed country, she will be charged for manslaughter and will spend maybe just few yrs if the judge is lenient.
I hope they atleast give her a comfortable cell. I hope she wld be kept for atleast 1yr instead of the 5yrs.
She needs to pay for taking a humane life. Let others learn from this, if you are maybe too tired or even too drunk,don't drive. I don't know if drunkness is part of her crime, but she was irresponsible and she cut off someone's life and future.

Stella make I no search for my comment with microscope. Bcos dat is what you do when smone criticises ur views.

Your brain is non existent! You just spewed serious trash up there. What the f..k do you mean by she was given option of a 100k fine but refused to pay? Can you read at all? I'm seriously amazed at how stupid you are! As in you are a serious dunce, did you attend primary school at all? You can't even understand a simple write up yet you insult ibinabo so much. I'm astounded at how empty your brain is and yet so poisonous. May God have mercy on you!

Let me help you break it down ibinabo was given an option to pay a fine of 100k by a magistrate and she paid that fine but the judgement was cancelled by the high court because the magistrate court first of all does not have the jurisdiction (authority) to handle a manslaughter case and secondly giving an option of a fine was improper because the traffic law did not give an option of a fine for such an offence. Subsequently, the high court sentenced her to 5 years in prison for her offence. Then the appeal court upheld the decision of the high court ( the 5year prison sentence) and ordered that the 100k be returned to Ibinabo.
If you still can't understand this then you are probably hopeless.

All this sentimental rantings is for nothing. The #1 victim of the accident is DEAD. Whether 5yrs or 50 yrs will not bring him back to life. It's okay for Ibinabo to serve jail term for manslaughter. It will give her closure of this whole saga & somewhat settle her conscience too. It might not have been easy with her and her own conscience. That is regardless of the legal drama and hurdles she's been trying to overcome. That one sef even small pass how her mind go dey worry am.

I pray the deceased family too will have some peace, that justice prevailed.

Anyway or anyhow you look at it, tragedy, waste of life, mishap, unfortunate, sadness is all you see. The man's kids are fatherless, Ibinabo's kids too will be motherless temporarily, so make she just serve the time, so this too will rest.

Nevertheless some of us are strong putting up façade of "all is well". I guess most of you wanted her to be crying on Social media about this tragedy. She knew she was jail bound, she came out of the AMCVA putting up that façade. How una want make she do?

When a woman moves on after separation or divorce, we congratulate her, but if a man does the same thing, any woman in his life becomes a husband snatcher.

How do you all rejoicing over this helpless woman's misfortune even sleep at night? She is a mother of 5 kids. I don't wish even my worst enemy to be separated from his/her little kids. Some people just have no conscience. I bet you people don't have caring mothers dat's why it means nothing to u people.
I find it totally abhorrent that you people are demanding that she be crucified simply bcos she is not your language person. It is obvious that you people would be asking for her freedom if she is one of you.
I pray the Supreme Court find her not guilty and set her free. Bcos it was an accident. It wasn't premeditated . she is not a serial killer. And she is a first time offender.
I also pray that God will strengthen and provide for the family of the dead.

Yes that anonymous was right. She was so drunk that night, she was driving Daniel Wilson's car when that accident happened. That night, her recklessness cost someone his life, a woman, her husband, some kids who are now adults, their father and Lagos State, a brilliant medical doctor and a citizen...... However you see it, all the victims deserve closure. Sorry Ibinabo, you had this coming.

Mr james wat is miscarriage of justice in dis case. Did she commit d offence of not. She committed an offence,first as a woman and not as an igbo woman"drunk driving" and thru d act killed a man not only a man, a father,husband,son,brother uncle friend to someone,who is still grieving, oh yes d dead cannot come back.and no amount of jail term can bring him back. But d offender needs to serve her punishment and av a sober reflection on wat she did.
Someone said her children will suffer,but they av forgotten dat dr giwa's kid av been suffering too since dat night 10yrs ago.

Exactly Jennah! You have done the world a disservice by not reporting him for driving drunk. Who knows if he has gone on to not only disfigure, but kill other people as he got away with it? Drunk driving is a serious crime and the consequences are dire. That someone bears the repercussion of his actions doesn't mean you didn't forgive him. They aren't mutually exclusive.

I found it depressing reading comments on this blog . Law is non repeat of color or tribe . @james and other tribalism nonentity try and commit a crime and see if you will not pay for it . For those paying family off before it get to court , it is evidence of poverty
No wonder most of you see nothing wrong in politician stealing your children future. Nigeria is a laughing matter in international community due to our attitude to embezzlement we made it feel it is normal and that is why some of our citizen are been prosecutes through hanging or huge prison setences abrading . To those playing down justice system , I wonder what you will be teaching your children in future , otherwise they will end up like Ibinabo. Listen to me folks, Ibinabo is an uncultured kids with no iota of conscious.Go and ask people that schooled with her at University of ibadan. 5his situation may help her to learn real Life. Life is a learning curves. For those pitying her , she is only going for 5 years and not forever , and now think our Dr Who left for life ? Imagine children been fatherless , imagine how their life will be affected, imagine how just one parent will be responsible for the 3 kids financially,morally,physically. .I guess one of the commentators said that one should think of her kids, what about the dead "s children? Pls enough of sentiments and tribalism . Do not cover crime, otherwise it will continue happening. The commentator that claimed that claimed that her sister was affected by accident and driver was not reported Do you know how many people the driver must have killed after your sister"s accident? Nigeria justice system is going into good direction. LET ALL EMBRACE IT.

Goodman you mirrored my thoughts. She should have laid low after the accident. She should do the time. I hope they allow conjugal visits.

What's all these attack for?...
Most of you masturbating under money makers comment goes anonymous to say worse things...
All of you should smell out biko!...

Sad as it is, I pray the supreme court upholds the judgement. It will serve as a major lesson to everyone.

See why it's good to hit and run!...
Chai Ibinabo,next time you hit somebody with your car,just flee!!...

But truth be told,the Giwa's family are very wicked!...
A friend of mine that had the same problem with IB paid the family of the deceased off!..
Will sending her to jail bring back their father?...
This is pure wickedness!...

Kiks said...

E.O.D!

And what has been happening to the kids of the Dr? Go and borrow sense. She committed a crime against the state. I.e Nigeria. So Nigeria is prosecuting her not yoruba people. Did you see the name of the presiding judge there, Anyawu. Go fuck your brains cos it's worthless

mimie said...

Hmm,this life!IB sorry,Mrs Suraj Giwa sorry.nothing dey this world abeg let's live in peace.God will see u both through.

You're a fucking idiot! She KILLED somebody's husband, son, father, brother and friend! Was she remorseful?? NO!

Set her free in your dreams? She's just away for 5yrs (which is actually 2& half years in prison calendar) from her children but Dr Giwa can't & wont be able to see his lovered ones again so stfu

I hope you'll still be of the same opinion if what happened to Dr Giwa's family happen to your family! Anofia

Not belle said...

James, are you kidding or have you really lulled yourself into believing what you're saying? It has to be the latter because what you're saying is that drinking, and even worse, DUI is not by choice. How many "Do not drink and drive" warnings are issued out, even by the makers of these alcoholic drinks? Plus, true remorse which I have yet to glimpse in Ibinabo's demeanour, is the ONLY ground for forgiveness and in this case, revoking the jail-term.

Omo said...

Some spiritual forces are bent on finishing this lady
I emphatise with the family of the dead doctor cos they need closure too but no amount of punishment given this lady is enough to pacify the wounded heart of the family member ..... His life can't b replaced no matter the punishment .
But I will beg the family to forgive and let go totally
Ibinabo is a nice lady whom I ve met twice .... She is just unlucky with life and events.... Too many enemies around her.
I will appeal to the doctor s family to pls take heart and forgive this woman .... Leave judgement to GOD plsssssss. Forgive her in the name of GOD
A life is taken - yes , it's sad.

James said...

Well said @queen and boss, I support settling with family of the dead. But I am totally against hit and run. That's lawlessness

Transparency said...

Why would you be so bitter? What has her kids got to do with this? She did not appeal the 100k, she paid it already which is why it is states there that the family should return the fine to her. Please read and comprehend properly before you write .

And she had to free like a peacock....peacock is proud. The judge must have read so much meaning and decided to humble her. Now she will be dressed like a dove.

Her picture in prison uniform will break the internet. Stella that should be your focus now not this pity-party

Queen of whatever you are an animal. Pay off the family Abi, if someone kills your own family member while drunk you can choose to collect money since you are a hungry mofo. That poverty has been allowing people get away with stuff does not make it the norm. This is not GEJ's government when anything goes. Now you commit a crime you do the time. Yes it will not bring back the deceased but that's not the point the point is to make people think twice before they get in a car and drive when drunk destroying the lives of innocent people. When people go to jail for rape or murder it does not reverse the crime but act as a deterrent for others . By the way a criminal case is against tech state and not this family and this is lagos state not all your jungle states where anything goes.

James you are simply sick, many Yoruba People are in jail for killing other Yoruba people. Don't make everything about tribe even when it has nothing to do with tribe. By the way the Judge was not even Yoruba so shut up. For those saying she should have run away she was seen by witnesses. Even if You away you will surely pay in one way or another. You cannot kill someone through carelessness and except To go Scot free

It was a hit and run case. She could have restituted after hitting the man but nooooo... She decided to run. She could have probably saved the guy if she had rushed him to the hospital sef. Humans are just wicked. Now do you think she doesn't deserve what she is getting? Or is it the man she killed that isn't separated from his family. Let's even leave all that cus she has a case with the government not the man's family or yoruba people. It is the government that is suing her. Di hou now get it?

Madam hulk hogan queen and boss my feet, it's U dat shd smell out frm here. Pray dat u shd be experience wat d Dr family went thru. Do unto others wat u want to be done to u.and leave sentiment aside

Her enemies and spiritual forces poured the alcohol down her throat till she got drunk and drove the car for her till she killed an innocent man, just like in Nollywood movies.

Anonymous said...

The lesson is don't drink before driving or drinking while driving. Get someone not drinking to do the driving. I feel bad for her though. She looks like a nice somebody. Stells, you should not have given the details of her been in kirikiri. Just my thought.

I think her being all over the place recently made it seem like she was without remorse. Seeing her in the media doing her thing everyday will keep reminding the family of the deceased that she's the reason he's gone. So their anger is inevitable. But I think that they can still appeal to them somehow. Then again there may be more to this.

sisi eko said...

I hope her husband will not remarry before she returns

sisi eko said...

Exactly. Doing fashion parade on red carpet upandan. Had an elaborate wedding and was gallivanting aso rock while battling the AGN thing. She just had a lot going that put her in the news. That wasn't wise at all. She'll go on vacation and plaster it online. Let's be sensitive

Stella, it's a shame you are talking like this. You are "really really sorry for her". Sometimes it's best to say nothing than type. Because she is your friend, fa? In Germany where you live, would someone who committed this kind of crime go Scot free. It's a big disappointment that you use your blog not to stand for justice as you try to claim. Big shame.

As for those melodramatic human beings that have turned this to a tribal issue, wait till it happens to you then you will know how far.

Linda Eze -- you are a classic example of why EDUCATION is important. It is not too late to attend Adult school.

God who doesn't slumber or sleep will judge you all on this blog. Make una continue.

Some people are so stupid and irresponsible with their response sha. Are we forgetting that she did kill someone. Someone's life was lost. She should be grateful she only got 5 years for vehicular manslaughter. She will come out eventually to her family and kids. What has the family got. She still has life. He was a productive citizen of the country. The family should rightly take her to civil court after her sentence because she does need to now financially compensate them. Next time don't drink and drive. How irresponsible. Naijas need to embrace the law, it should work for everyone equally irrespective of your status in the society.

It's so sad, but i am happy justice will be served even if it's small time she serves, i don't wish this fate on anyone but the family would breath knowing that dey fought a good fight. So sorry Ebi, time would pass fast that's if you really do go to jail

Like in said reason comment on this blog is depressing . S@queen may what happens to Dr Giwaa happens to you entire family , then we will be able to judge you. So shall bit be. Look at the deluded element on this blog . Also taking about hit and run , and you are expected to sleep at night . Honestly I fear your tribe which ever side you are from

Jesus H Christ!!! This is a crime against the STATE! Nigeria sent her to jail and not the family. The law is the law, dammit! If the family had begged on her behalf, the law will still run its course! Are you guys learned at all? How can people be displaying stupidity like a trophy! Eish!
