Ibinabo Fiberesima Cries Out, Says Family Of Hit & Run Victim Has Banned Her

March 19, 2016 – Ibinabo Fiberesima Cries Out, Says Family Of Hit & Run Victim Has Banned Her

Few weeks before she was jailed, Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima made a final appeal to the family of late Doctor Suraj Giwa to forgive her by accepting her monetary offer.

Sadly, her offer was rejected as the family of the deceased intensified their legal effort to get justice.

This is what Ibinabo said:

“I almost committed suicide the first time I was jailed. Since the incident happened, I have learnt how not to trust anybody any more. I put my trust now in the Lord and this is better explained in the new song I recorded. The music captures my story.

“Emotionally, I have been drained and to some extent humiliated, even in public. I wasn’t happy that I was involved in that accident. I have said it over and over again that I’m deeply sorry that it ever happened.

“I don’t know how else to atone for the accident. I started begging my victim’s family from the very day the accident happened. My family attended the funeral rites and service of songs and I even attended the 40 days prayer when I was not strong enough to move about.

“I met with the mother and the wife of the deceased. There’s virtually nothing I didn’t do to plead with the family of the deceased to let me off the hook. I’m still pleading with them as I speak with you right now, even though they banned me from coming to see them, they warned me to stop coming to their house. So, I can only pray for them and that’s what I did always.”

Ibinabo is currently serving a 5-year jail term in Kirikiri

      Yes,,, we all need to learn from your experience. when we are driving we should not live our brain at home and be driving with empty head, we should remember that we are driving among people not goats. so, your punishment is just five years but the person killed would never come back to live again. so just understand, shut up your mouth and forget not you creator. so, just try to pay that for the man’s life.

    It is realy a pity that you are passing through this. What I see here is that in your effort to sort out things with the family, you did not forget your ego. You speak of being humiliated. True contrition would hadly notice that, considering the life that you took. N100000 is a serious insult to the late doctor and the survivors. You could have gone very out of your way to appease this people. You could have swallowed every insult if they fed you with that. But you kept your social status in view and that was your error. I don’ think the family would have banned you if you were saying reasonable things.

    Yet I have a token for you: Firstly, withdraw this case that you have forwarded to the supreme court: you never can tell what bigger trouble it may buy you. Secondly, try and reach the family, preferably by letter writing. Tell them that you now feel deeply sorry for what you had put them through, and that you know that you even deserve to do a longer time than has been allocated to you in the prison. Say this, even if you do not believe it. Tell them that when you come out, you would be a better and more responsible woman.

    You could write this letter over and over again, never forgetting to send them warm regards. Do not make the mistake of pleading for your release in the letter, otherwise it could backfire. Just keep it short, straight to points. And believe you me, this would influence the judge to quickly give you parole.

    My dear Nollywood star, thank God that you are still alive to complain about trust issues, about the victim’s family banning you ftomorrow their residence, and talking about prison humiliation. Endure the jail term that is not measurable to the man slaughter offense you committed under serious influence of alcohol on the day you accidentaly killed Dr. Giwa . You have been very smart, well connected, and highly famous to have invaded justice for ten years since the day you turned Dr. GIWA’S wife to a widow, and his children to orphans. Please gladly serve the five years sentence, and ask God for forgiveness. Please stop complaining and winning because I fully believe in justice for the poor, the weak, powerless aND voiceless. May God help Ms. Ibinabo.

    Madam, you have a good way of showing how sorry and emotionally drained you were! Like we have not been seeing the glitz and glamour that has been the your lifestyle in the past years? You are just saying all these because of your jail term. How about you serve the term and 5 years from now apologize to the family? You almost committed suicide the first time you were jailed….. so really, it is not about you being sorry for the life that was lost on that fateful day, it is about you going to jail. Please stop disturbing public peace and humbly get used to your new abode. You better start acting for your co-prisoners so you don’t lose your skills by the time you get out. After all, your career is so important to you. Mtchew.

    “Judge not for you shall not be judge”. Reading all the news junky, I see a lot of folks judging this young Lady and have actually condemned her. I pray for divine intervention of peace, mercy and healing on the family of the deceased. We all make mistakes. I don’t think Ms.Fiberesima just woke up on that faithful day and decided to go kill an innocent Man. I pray for the soul of this man to rest in peace by everyone letting go, especially the media and million of self righteous folks that have done worse atrustcity

    It’s very dis-heartening to see a lot of folks using this case to express their stupidity.

    What happened to Late Dr. Giwa and Ms. Fiberesima could happen to anyone. Instead of spitting out childish talks we should speak out more intelligently on how to make our roads safer. How the authorities should regulate auto mobile licenses, putting up proper traffic signage.; and proper road construction. Speak out on reformation of road safety Corp. Speak on reformation of traffic law.
    My Dr. Giwa’s soul Rip and I pray divine peace and dive mercy .

    Nigerian justice system sucks. It favors whomever.

    Anthony all you mentioned is nothing when One is driving under influence. Its a pity She got Just five years and not fifty. Ibinabo”s utterances still reveal so much ego and no remorse. She should serve her term quietly. Shikena!

    Thank u Anthony 4 DAT comment, bcs d hateful word some people are commenting here make me to wonder if she intentionally killed d man, accident can happen anywhere & any day. But my problem with her is her ego & refusal to apologize in public, anyway I pray that God Almighty should give d family d fortitude to bear the loss, grant eternal rest to the dead & also come to d aid of IB.

    In any case drinking and driving is a crime which every dick and harick do in Nigeria without thinking the damage it can cause, but what I have to say in this issue is that the accident has happened but dont forget it was not intentional, this can happen to any drunk and drive person. The family of disease should temper justices with mercy, our Lord in heaven forgives us our sins when we ask for forgiveness, if she spend hundred years in prison, will it bring back the dead? In everything that happens to us,We should learn how to give thanks to God Almighty who owns vengeance. In the bible, remember our Lord’s prays, forgive our tranpasses as we have forgiven those that has transpassed against us. Except you people do not a Christ Jesus… Please forgive her..because it God that knows tomorrow
