January 29, 2016 – Ibinabo Fiberesima Murder Case: Nigerian Actress Faces Jail For Killing Doctor Giwa Suraj In Lekki Lagos
On Thursday the 28th of January 2016, an appeal court in Lagos reserved the ruling on the appeal filed by Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima for the 5-year jail term she was initially given by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi.
Justice Ndukwe Anyanwu paused the ruling yesterday because the actress was not in the country.
Ibinabo was slammed with a five-year sentence for her reckless driving that killed a doctor, Giwa Suraj in 2006.
She challenged the ruling at the appeal court asking that they revert to the Magistrate Court ruling which handed her a fine of N100,000.
Ibinabo Fiberesima’s murder trial has been adjourned.
