He said that Ibinabo Fiberesima had been carrying around the trauma for the past 11 years, adding that his mother was just unlucky, while denying that she was driving drunk.

Actress Ibinabo Fiberesima’s   five year jail term was upheld at the  Court of Appeal in Lagos on Friday. Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur delivered the decision saying that the appeal was shallow and lacked merit.

She (Ibinabo) was alleged to have collided with the car of a staff of Lagos State hospital, Giwa Suraj as a result of reckless driving on the Lekki-Epe Expressway in February, 2006.
