Court Denies Ibinabo Fiberesima Bail | New Details Emerge of Recent Breast Surgery



Ibinabo FiberisimaA three man panel presided over by Justice Ndukwe-Anyanwu has denied actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima bail yesterday. The panel, which included Justice Samuel Oseji and Justice Tijani Abubakar refused to continue with the actress’s application for bail, saying she did not attach copies of the judgment delivered by the Court of Appeal on March 11th, 2016.

Justice Ndukwe went on to say that the options remaining are either to reject the appeal, or adjourn it to a later date. Ibinabo’s lawyer, Nnaemeka Amaechina opted for the adjournment of the case so that he can file a more competent application.

The case was then adjourned till April 7th 2016 for the hearing of the bail application.

Meanwhile, in her Notice of Appeal, the President of Actors Guild of Nigerian told the Supreme Court that the Court of Appeal erred in law by honoring the judgment of the high Court and setting aside the bail granted her by the Magistrate Court. She said it was “interference by the High Court with the exercise of discretion by the Magistrate’s Court”.

According to The Nation, an affidavit of urgency deposed by Victor Eden, said the ex-beauty queen is just recovering from breast surgery and needed constant monitoring.

He also said that in the interest of justice and her health and safety, Ibinabo should be granted bail pending the determination of her appeal before the Supreme Court.

    Where are the new details of the recent breast surgery? What is the correlation between the legal issues and her anatomy?

      In NIgeria when its time to face the law everyone pulls the sickness card
      From Cecelia Ibru to Dezani to Ibinabo
      Madam face your work in Jail … You have had your day in court .
      Those even supporting Ibinabo , have you noticed she doesnt dispute the charges …….. THINK DEEPLY ABOUT IT . what she is begging for is fine instead of jail term .
      Yet all these fake versions keep springing up . STICK TO THE FACTS

      You Nigerians baffle me sometimes. So is it impossible that a woman her age just had breast surgery. Both sides should have a doctor’s note showing she had surgery and needs monitoring. The state should also have a doctor discounting the need for further monitoring. Only in this country will a judge decide on his own whether or not to grant medical bail and only in this country will the pple support that judge. Omg.

      Well it happens in other places. But that’s not our standard

      Maybe she should change her lawyers. Nigerian judges especially JCAs are overworked. I was even surprised they gave her April….mssschew….you’re a lawyer, you get your day in front of the judge and you’re unprepared? Well then….

      With the way people drink and drive in Nigeria, and the loss of lives associated with the irresponsibility…any reasonable journalist would use this as a campaign against driving under the influence….not some pity party for a celebrity.

      Nigerians are addicted to disordeliness…that and it seems a lot of people didn’t follow the story back then because they were kids, or didn’t live in the country.

      What I remember: She was drunk, got in an accident, fled the scene, Daniel Wilson was somehow involved and then when she was finally arrested, they bribed the judge and got a ridiculous judgment.

      I also remember sitting at the end of my bed, reading a newspaper and my blood just boiling over the injustice. The story would have ended there if the family weren’t educated. That’s what hurt me the most…the fact that people can just bribe and ‘celebrity’ their way through life without consequences.

      BN please just stop trying to convince us or the courts. Use this as an opportunity to educate these celebrities and rich kids that they need to be responsible!

      So true …….I don’t know why people will be yarning dust
      Every single time the case was tried , it returned GULITY . Every single time
      That shows you the facts to the case yet people will be analyzing nonsense

      There is a reason why it keep returning GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY .
      Many facts are just not public knowledge yet except some mentioned by the sister . Yet people will still be arguing .

      For example it was proven in court that Ibinabo took the plates number out of the car and all the documents . This is not heresay but she was found guilty of tampering with evidence in a crime scene yet some people ask if this is true .

      Duh the evidence spoke for itself .

      Ibinabo was said to have been seriously drunk while driving the vehicle ( a jeep) belonging to her erstwhile lover, Daniel Wilson, in which she was with some other girls.

      Though the actress pleaded not guilty, the prosecution called five witnesses during the trial to prove its case, and all the five who, included two eye witnesses, gave detailed account of how the offence was committed, to the court.

      The presiding magistrate, Mr. A.O. Isaac, thus held he was totally convinced that the actress committed the offence, having looked at the circumstances surrounding the matter as well as the account of the prosecution witnesses. He found her guilty as charged and convicted her accordingly.

    If she did not go to prison i will have no trust in the Nigerian judicial system. Alot persons are in prisons all over the country awaiting trial for more than the five years she was sentence to over minor crime not manslaugher. It is rather unfortunate that it now that she have breast surgery.

    It hurts that people can come on here and delight in another person’s misery. its non of your business if it is medically or cosmetics or if she has been attending parties, why are you looking for the details or correlation? Its been years, forgiving and letting the soul of the deceased rest in peace is very important, it was a mistake, she admitted and she is sorry. Ok after 5 years in jail, will it bring back the dead? Or is Ibinabo just being punished because she is in the lime light?
    What is you definition of Justice?

      March 18, 2016 at 12:29 pm

      Madam, the dead will not return but atleast justice would have been served. She shouldnt think pride, money and connection will extricate her from this mess she created if she had publicly apologized. The public would have been behind her and the case would have been dusted. But she fled the scene, took every incriminating evidence with her and took to her heels. And the new witness’s statement is valid, how would one take an unconscious person from Lekki to St Nicholas hospital and why didnt the hospital provide medical record to back the claim?. Abeg, ibinabo should just go to jail or else karma might serve her a worse meal.

      Robbers who kill innocent people and are sentenced, are you saying sentencing them is not accurate as it won’t bring the people they’ve murdered back to life? Please, you need to think critically and be analytical about the situation.
      It’s a sad situation for both parties involved but the law has to be executed appropriately.

      JUSTICE is when someone isn’t able to get away with KILLING a man, brother, husband, father, uncle, son, doctor, friend as a result of DRUNK DRIVING AND fleeing the scene of the crime….(hit and run). then paying 100,000 naira… I’m sure you are educated. but your comment sounds incredibly unintelligent.


      March 18, 2016 at 3:31 pm

      The definition of justice is paying for your crimes. If the essence is forgiveness then we should not have consequences for any detrimental actions. She committed manslaughter and the confirmation of guilt already determined by the courts requires she spend 5 years in jail. When a family member of yours is killed by someone’s criminal negligence come back here and spew your bullshit. We have laws and no one should be above the law.

WTF… that’s unfair, not even with community service, no human life is worth 100k, they should have said community service at least. I don’t even want her to be jailed, but hey.

    March 18, 2016 at 11:41 am

    I haven’t made any comment on this issue since. Because I really did not know what to say. I felt sorry for Ibinabo but I also felt sorry for Giwa’s family. I felt worse for Giwa’s family because Ibinabo practically rubbed her continued enjoyment of life in their faces: awards shows, pageants, affairs, marriage etc It seemed she lived to the fullest careless of the fact that her actions cost another person his life so my sympathy was swayed towards the Giwas.

    However, with this continued charade, I am beginning to lose all sympathy for Ibinabo. O gini di? People go to jail for crimes far less than manslaughter. Though her sentence has differed, she has been found guilty at 3 different courts. And here we are still saying things like ‘her sentence will not bring Giwa back’ “she is being attacked by GMB” “a new witness has come forward” and all other rubbish. Three courts, three guilty verdicts (with one different sentence) why are we still here? Why are we belaboring this point? I don’t pray to kill anyone, I pray nobody kills anyone but if you ever find yourself in this situation, have the heart to try your best to make reparation, whatever that reparation may be! If Ibinabo had gone to jail 5 years ago, by now she for don forget say she go jail. But because the case has listed for over 10 years, she can now not imagine going to jail for something she has put behind her.

    But it was a human life. How do you put a human life behind you. If the man had never encountered you, he might still be alive today. Ibinabo should be thankful for her life and accept the courts verdict then put this behind her once and for all! Ike this prolonged dissecting of one case agwu go everybody!

    I am glad she was denied bail. These lies keep making me wish her the jail term. Why does she keep appealing? I see all shades of guilt on this. Ibinabo, if truly you are innocent, you will be exonerated and karma will leave you but as long as you are guilty that karma will pursue you till you go to prison. And you successfully extricate yourself from it with every string you can pull, it will deprive you of a lot. You would have made this easier if you had gotten down from your high horse and done the needful.

Reverse is the case here and everyone is saying ibinabo going to jail won’t bring the dead back..Hmmmmmm,yet we condemn the justice system every chance we get..Do we all know how many people have lost their lives through such accidents? If ibinabo were to be abroad she would have served her jail time long ago…I don’t have anything against her but a life was lost,through recklessness…

It is so insensitive for people to say ‘will her jail term bring the doctor back?’.

    Ibinabo Ma, if you know you are guilty can you please do the needful and pray for God to send you help somehow.
    A family friend knock down a 13 year old sometime in December. She was on her way to church and the poor girl was going to fetch water for her family. It was in the morning, not case of over speeding because it was in a tight street. She wasn’t drunk but it just happened. She reported herself to the nearby police station and the police in the area could not explain it because they couldn’t imagine how it could have happened. She was in their cell for days and the family of the girl was contacted but the father didn’t want any case but just wants for his daughter to be buried and with pleads/prayers ooo because I believe only God made it possible and easy.
    When you think you have all the connection and some lawyers be collecting your money giving you hope that you have a case, then you will have to dance to the music.
    No one wants to be a family member of both sides especially me. It must really be a difficult time.

    I don’t understand all these analysis is about, I have commented on all the stories, maybe I should give a true life experience, my driver hit 2 girls who while trying to cross the cross ran in front of our vehicle. Thank God the girls were not hurt, and of course a crowd gathered and people started giving all sorts of theories. We took the girls to the hospital, paid the bill, waited for their parents to come. By the time the parents arrived, some people started telling them that they should ask me to pay because I was rich (I wish). Fortunately for me, a soldier who had followed us from the scene of the accident overheard the people telling the parents to make sure we pay money despite the fact that the accident was not our fault and the girls had a just few bruises. The soldier who had been on their side now confronted them and ensured that I did not pay extra money. Plus the girls’ parents were Christians this is a long story but the lessons that should be learnt from which did not happen in Ibinabo’s case. 1. We stopped 2, we took care of the girls despite the fact that it was not our fault., My car windscreen was shattered I had to bear the cost. if you act in a way that shows remorse, you will find someone who will be sympathetic to your cause, I don’t know the soldier and I have never seen her again after that day but she took on my case without asking for anything. My 2 cents, in any situation always do the right thing and allow God to take control.

Ultimately, it’s how you handle the aftermath, which Ibinabo has allegedly handled inadequately; based on what the deceased sister and the court of law have said to the general public.

    This case just keeps getting sad. She hasn’t even been sentenced for manslaughter but driving under influence. I think she should be charged with manslaughter too so she can spend the rest of her life in jail. Did I hear some1 say cruel””

    See as humans, we should always know that our decisions, actions and disposition in life will affect the next person, if you live a cautious life or reckless life you will definitely have a share in the outcome of your actions. Any thing that has to do with the death of a human life becomes the matter of the state(govt) and to think that she wasn’t remorseful…… the family will nurse their pains forever if she goes to jail or not but justice must be served.

    What she is facing is grievous but the case and loss of life is also incredibly painful and traumatic for all involved. My advice for her is to ask her ‘CLUELESS LAWYER’ not to try and get her out of serving the sentence by making fruitless appeals but to ask that she serves her 5 year sentence under ‘HOUSE ARREST’. That way both parties get some closure. She will serve out her sentence at home with a tracking device attached to her leg like the ones they use in the STATES and she will have to report to her Prison Officer twice a month. I know some people may say, ‘What planet do I live on? In Nigeria…….but all things are possible. This is my advice to Ibinabo. Her passport should be seized and she has to be continuously monitored during this time. This way she can be with her children but also serve out her sentence. Visitors will be restricted from visiting her in compliance with the restrictions placed on her.
