January 30, 2016 – “Ibinabo Fiberesima Sick, She’s Recovering From Surgery “- AGN Rivers Chapter Defends Sacked President
May I through this medium inform our dear fans and fellow Nollywood practitioners that the rumour about the AGN National President, Ibinabo Fiberesima being jailed is false.
I am reliably informed that she is still outside the country. She just underwent a successful surgery in the UK. Meanwhile may I inform you that the motion for stay of execution in the jugment delivered by Justix Tsoho in the matter between one St. Maradona Vs Actors Guild of Nigeria came up before Justice Olatore of the Federal High Court Ikoyi lagos yesterday, 28/01/2016.
After hearing the final submissions from both counsels, she adjourned the case till March 23, 2016 for final judgement. Present in court yesterday were our lead counsel, Barr. Amaechina, Chairman/Vice of the BOT, Nat Excos and over 25 members of the Lagos state chapter of AGN.
Our counsel made a brilliant presentation that there cannot be a vacuum in the leadership of the organisation therefore the motion be granted pending the determination of the appeal court.
Ibinabo Fiberesima who could not fly down due to her health condition had to break the bed rest rule placed on her to monitor all the proceedings throughout.
We pray for victory on 23rd March and also wish her a speedy recovery.
