ibinabo fiberesima jailed 5 years

March 11, 2016 – Nigerian Actress, Ex-AGN President Ibinabo Fiberesima Sent To Jail For Killing Doctor Suraju Giwa While Driving Under Alcohol Influence On Lekki Ajah Road In Lagos


After over 10 years of averting justice for her reckless driving that killed the official doctor of Lagos State government, Dr Suraj Giwa, Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima has been sent to jail.

The beautiful mother of 4 lost her appeal at Igbosere Court of Appeal today.

The court presided over by Justice Jamilu Turkur dismissed her appeal today with no option for fine.

Justice Turkur ordered Lagos State governor to refund Ibinabo the N100,000 fine she paid.

To cut the long story short, Ibinabo was today handed 5 year imprisonment for her dangerous and reckless driving that ended the life of Dr Suraj Giwa on Lekki Ajah Expressway.

After over 3 months in a coma, Suraj Giwa gave up the ghost on the 6th of February 2006.

Eyah!!! this is too much for her.

May God comfort her and may Giwa’s soul continue to rest in peace.

    Umh, it a shame for this country and its leadership who are not any special and could suffer same faith like the Doctor. She committed this offense and let off the hook for over ten years, then given 5-yrs, so she can return to enjoy her life with family, friends and celebrity status/attention while the Dr.’s family continues to live in pains, memory amd hopelessness without their bread-winner.

    Why not life in prison to send a strong message and encourage other people to take safety, speed and road sharing responsible. Our judiciary miss alot of opportunities to send strong message about the law and they turn around to blame the government involvement/corruption, until it hit home (happens to their Son/Daughter). Then they want heaven to descend/change the law overnight and start a facebook/twitter peoples’ simparity.

    I‘m afraid u dnt seem 2 undstnd wat d word “Jungle Justice“ rily mean, @ Bayo.

    2 me its more lk, conclusion w/t proper investigation or verification of a crime. A prejudice, leading 2 torture maiming or even gruesome killing of a suspect behind d Law.

    Bt here we had a murder case caused by drunk driving dat has bn tried in d Court of Law 4 a span of 3yrs nw running, dat finally came 2 an expected & justified end afta gvn a fair hearing n surprisingly… Some of u ar stll crying foul, 4 wat if I may ask?

    It serves her rt. In fact, its justice long ovadue. Afta d expiration of her jail terms, she‘ll undstnd dat drukeness is NOT suposed 2 b 1 of d characteristics of a woman bt an irresponsible man, Gbam!

    Just wanna…

    Finally, she got the punishment she deserves for killing an innocent man on the street of Lagos because she was heavily drunk. She has invaded justice for years because of her ungodly connection with Jonathan administration. This is a justice deserve to the window and children of the deceased-Dr. Giwa. Nobody should be killed on the street of Lagos or anywhere in Nigeria by a powerful drunken driver who has political connection, money, fame, and influence. This will serve has a great lesson that no wicked person will go unpunished for his or her wickedness at God’s appointed times. Only a dumb person will called this jungle justice if his mother or father was killed by a drunken driver.

    Guess she was drunk or DUI anything when it happened.I know if GEJ were still in power, she would have gone free.because she was at the fore front of of his campaign team.NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.

    Ten years provided the oppotuinity for Ibinabo to personally reconcile with the family of the deceased. I bet she could have succeeded if she had tried. Importunate pleas and unfeigned contrite over a ten-year period could soften anybody’s heart(I strongly believe). After all, a woman once forgave the killer of his son when she could not bear to see how the killer was crying while taken to the hangman’s noose.

    But she thought that she could use connection instead. Well, connections do not last.

    It’s really shocking and laughable to read some of the comments from the sympathisers of this lady (Ibinabo) on this forum; some have even suggested that, Ibinabo’s sentencing is POLITICALLY MOTIVATED!?????How is that possible? When this particular incident happened 10 years ago and it involved the death of a promising doctor whose life was cut short abruptly by a drunken unremorseful woman driver.
    The truth of the matter, is the fact that someone died in this unfortunate incident; and the death was caused by a drunken, unrepentant and unremorseful driver.
    This is justice well served on Ibinabo;and I personally think some Nigerians are NOT so used to seeing the high and mighty being sent to jail hence the shocking reactions and disbelief, in their comments.

    She would have appealed & pacified the family of that doctor. It’s her fault she delayed everything thinking she will go scot free now she’s heading back to prison

    this is total rubbish i which the deceased is just a normal human being the case would have been closed now. is because the man is lagos official doctor that is why they brought justice to prevail

      Im surprised at those that are sympathetic towards the Accused?? She committed a crime yet some are saying that her 5 year sentence is unjust? Do you know what is UNJUST? the fact that it too TEN YEARS for her to serve punishment for her action. The fact that a court slapped her with a 100k fine which she PAID is enough ADMISSION to her GUILT. If she was innocent why accept to pay the fine? Now you are being handed a 5 year jail sentence which is the CORRECT punishment for the crime committed and now it was an accident? Go to any civilised country and see if drink driving is taken so lightly, especially when you kill other INNOCENT road users. She deserves to do the time for the crime she committed – this will also serve as a DETERRENT for anyone else who gets behind the wheel whilst drunk. Not trying to be rude but let us STOP using sentiment and let us think and talk like the intelligent people we are.

    God none of us should be a victim of circumstances. Because drunk or not accident is bond to happen. We should all pray. Even d judge that gave verdict can be a victim too. The world they say is full of evil.
