0
The Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, has upheld the
judgement of a Lagos High Court which sentenced star actress and former beauty
Queen, Ibinabo Fiberesima to five years’ imprisonment for the death of one Dr
Giwa Suraj.
The court dismissed the appeal filed by the star actress
challenging the sentence which was handed down by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi for
reckless driving which caused the death of one Dr. Giwa Suraj in an auto
accident along the Lekki-Epe expressway, Lagos.
In a unanimous decision delivered by Justice Jamilu Yammama
Tukur, the court also dismissed the sentence of a Magistrate Court which had
earlier awarded a N100, 000 fine on the actress.
The Appeal Court held that the Magistrate lacked the
discretion to grant Ibinabo the option of a fine upon conviction. Immediately, the judgment was delivered, Ibinabo who was
visibly apprehensive throughout the proceeding burst into tears and wept
furiously.
