Nollywood Actress Ibinabo Fiberesima's bail application declined by Court of Appeal

Ibinabo Fiberesima

The actress and mother of three will eventually spend years in prison over the car accident in 2005 that took a man's life. Her bail application did not have some requirements and was rejected yesterday Thursday March 17th at the court of Appeal in Lagos after the judges ruled that her application was incompetent.

The three man-panel led by Justice U.I Ndukwe-Anyanwu, said that the application was not properly filed as her counsel failed to add copies of the judgment that was delivered by the court which affirmed the five years jail sentence imposed on her.

The court adjourned hearing for her bail application to April 7th when copies of the March 11th‎ judgment would have been included. She was afterward returned to prison.

Ibinabo has appealed to the Supreme Court to set aside the March 11th verdict of the Lagos State Court of Appeal which validated the 5 year jail term handed down to her by the state's High court over the 2005 accident in which the victim was killed.

I just pray for her, hoping the law will have an overlook on her case, because it is quite obvious the law is being followed strictly and without sentiments all because a life was lost in the accident.

May God help her, include her in your prayers.
