Nollywood In Uneasy Calm As Appeal Court Reserves Judgment In Ibinabo’s Murder Case





There have been uneasy calm in Nollywood as a Lagos appeal court reserved judgement in a suit between Ibinabo Fiberesima and the Lagos State government.


Speaking to judicial correspondence, comic actor, high Chief Mcsmith Ochendo said “The Judiciary has always been the hope of the common man. I have been praying fervently for a day like this and I congratulate the Lagos state government. Those miscreants who go about misinforming the public and interpreting the laws of our land upside down should now bury their heads in shame. This is purely a legal matter and not some slapstick comedy. The AGN National PR said.

Speaking further, the veteran actor said “Justice must prevail and I see light at the end of the tunnel. Ibinabo Fiberesima is a candidate of the gallows who has a foot in prison.” Ochendo posited.

Also speaking, a close ally of Ibinabo, Empress Ene said that she believes that the government should tender justice with mercy considering Ibinabo’s contribution to Nollywood. “ We are in prayers for her for God to intervene in this matter because we are not happy at all” Empress said.


On his part, Nollywood actor, henry oseiwenge said that he suspects fowl play in the way the case suddenly resurrected “I think the APC government in lagos is trying to be vindictive because of the role my boss Ibinabo Fiberesima play during the last presidential election, you know she mobilized the whole of Nollywodd to campaign for president Goodluck Jonathan in all the 36 states and she has never hidden her support for Goodluck Jonathan. I pray she is vindicated at last” Oseiwenge said.

In a post, Nollywood star actor and president of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Ike who have had a long legal battle with Ibinabo said “This is lesson for everyone that no matter how long it takes, the law will certainly catch up with offenders.

This is a woman who was convicted in a case of man-slaughter between her and the government of Lagos State a few years back where she caused the death of Dr Suraj Giwa, a US trained doctor and was sentenced to 5 years imprison. She refused to serve the jail term and she has not even shown any remorse because she thinks she can pay 100,000 as compensation for the dead. And this is a woman that wants to lead the creative Industry in Nigeria.

Do you know that On march 16, 2015, a federal high presided over by Justice James tsoho in a landmark Judgement sacked Ibinabo Fiberesima as president of Actors Guild of Nigeria, yet Ibinabo described the Judgment as a kangaroo and an arrangement by the APC Government to remove her from office because of her support for President Goodluck Jonathan in the last election, what insolence. Instead she is boasting of her connection in high places terrorizing and using the police to harass and intimidate perceived enemies in Nollywood. The era of impunity is over in this country”. Emeka Ike said.
