Nigeria Slams Nollywood Beauty Queen 5 Years Jail Term

Bellanaija reports that Nigerian actress Ibinabo Fiberesima has been slammed a 5-year jail term by The Court of Appeal in Lagos on Friday. Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur delivered the decision on last Friday, saying that the appeal was shallow and lacked merit.

She (Ibinabo) was alleged to have collided with the car of a staff of Lagos State hospital, Giwa Suraj as a result of reckless driving on the Lekki-Epe Expressway in February, 2006.

The Nollywood actress had already been fined N100,000 by a Magistrate court, a decision that was overruled by the High Court. Justice Oluwayemi of the trial Court replaced the fine with a five year jail term, saying that the Magistrate exercised “judicial recklessness” by giving the option of a fine.

She appealed the case, but according to Vanguard newspaper, her appeal was dismissed; thus setting her on the path to a 5-year jail term.
