Ibinabo: This is not acting
In the world of make-belief, one is required to be in character even to the extent of killing. But popular actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima, now knows that the prospect of going to jail for five years is not acting.
The pretty actress who has been in court since 2006 over her actions that led to the death of Dr. Giwa Suraj has been commuted to 5 years jail time in a judgment by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of the Court of Appeal Lagos Division.
The ex-beauty queen, who is also the president of the Actors' Guild of Nigeria, AGN, was sentenced by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi for reckless driving which caused the death of Suraj in an auto accident along the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos.
With the judgment, Ibinabo will be hoping that she wakes up to find out that this is not reality but one of her pageants.
If Ibinabo had not challenged the verdict of the High Court, she would in all probability have served her time and in all likelihood gotten state pardon from the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
But with the apex court still her last chance, she has to galvanise her family and friends to seek for heaven’s intervention lest she walks prison corridors.
