Court Grants Ibinabo Bail

0 30

Beleaguered Nollywood actress Ibinabo Fiberesima, was on Thursday granted a N2million bail by a Lagos State Court of Appeal.

The court also ordered the former president of the Actors Guide of Nigeria (AGN), to provide two sureties who are residents of the State and must each swear to an affidavit of means.

Recall that Ibinabo’s lawyer had filed a bail application on the grounds of a serious medical attention.

The actress was recently sentenced to a 5-year jail term by the Court of Appeal in Lagos after losing an appeal over the death of one Dr Giwa Suraj, who she allegedly killed in an auto accident along Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos, 10 years ago.

She has since then approached the Supreme Court to set aside the judgement.

Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur of the Appeal court said he was granting the actress bail pending the determination of a suit filed by her at the Supreme Court, as it would amount to injustice if after Fiberesima had been kept in prison and the Supreme Court later decides to nullify her jail term.
