A court sitting in Lagos on Thursday, 17th March, has denied Actors Guild of Nigeria’s president and Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima bail.
According to the three man-panel led by Justice U.I Ndukwe-Anyanwu, the case brought forward by the mother of three was ruled incompetent.
The ruling noted that the application was not properly filed as her counsel failed to attach copies of the judgment that was delivered by the court which confirmed the five years jail sentence imposed on her.
It will be recalled, that Mrs Fiberesima was last week sentenced to a five year jail term by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of the Lagos State Court of Appeal for reckless driving, which caused the death of one Dr. Giwa Suraj along the Lekki-Epe Expressway in Lagos.
The court adjourned hearing for her bail application till April 7th when copies of the March 11th judgement would have been included.
She was afterward sent back to prison.
