Ibinabo Fiberesima’s jail sentence: Let actress be responsible for upkeep of victim’s family – Freeze


Cool FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, Freeze has expressed his opinion regarding the court sentence on Nollywood actress and President of Actor Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Ibinabo Fiberesima.
A court of Appeal had hast week, upheld her five-year jail sentence for the death of Dr. Giwa Suraj in a car accident 10 years ago, which has left the actress devastated.
Following her present predicament, the popular and vocal OAP has called for her pardon.
On what he tagged, “Should Ibinabo go to Jail for 5 years???” Daddy Freeze wrote in an Instagram post: I ran a poll on the Roadshow on @coolfmlagos, and callers voted 6:1 in favor of her serving the sentence.

“Do I agree? Well, no,” the OAP continued, and they added that her children shouldn’t be deprived their mother, plus there are other measures to punishing the embattled former beauty queen for the incident that led to the death of another man.
It would be recalled that the actress was initially given a fine of N100, 000 by Chief magistrate O.A Isaacs.
But the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Olasupo Sasore (SAN), was unsatisfied with the judgment and appealed it at the Lagos High Court.
In his opinion, Freeze proposed: “Let’s not deprive her children of their mother and not further traumatized them with the negativity associated with their mum being an ex-convict.
“However, a N100, 000 fine? Seriously? What can 100k buy in Nigeria today? Not even an iPhone 6! Probably an iPhone 5s at the most!
“So are you saying a woman would be deprived of her husband’s love, care and intimacy in exchange for an iPhone 5s??? Or the children would be told “sorry guys daddy is gone but here is an iPhone 5s for you guys to share” really???
“I am of the opinion that she should be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the children.
“This responsibility should be directly proportional to her income. Also, a portion of her income should go to the wife unless she, (the wife) states otherwise. No amount of money can replace a loved one.
“However, taking financial responsibility could help bring closure to the bereaved family.
“I pray she is pardoned but she needs to show empathy and remorse, while being responsible for the family of the deceased,” the presenter noted.
