Why should we pray for Ibinabo Fiberesima?



A lot have been said about Ibinabo Fiberesima, the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) in the past few weeks about her court case and her subsequent sentencing. We already know she was
involved in an accident which led to the death of one Dr Giwa and of course accidents do happen, it doesn't matter whether you drive very carefully or recklessly but a life was involved. Many people have called for her to be released, many have called for prayers for her, many have asked that the judgment be reversed and I have been asking myself why? Is it because the person involved is Fiberesima? is it because she is an actor and popular or have we been begging Judges in Nigeria to reverse their judgments when ordinary Nigerians were sent to jail for their crimes?

I honestly think all those calling for her to be freed are just ignorant of what the law says, they have refused to look at what the law says about manslaughter, they forgot about the life of a Doctor that was wasted in that accident and all what they were thinking was how Ibinabo Fiberesima would be spending just five years in jail, yes just five years! I think she should be happy that it was not a life imprisonment or not longer than five years, five years of Ibinabo in jail will not bring back Dr Giwa but she has to pay for her reckless or careful driving. In countries like the UK, people are jailed for traffic offences, for mere over speeding how much more someone that killed someone and even had to flee the scene of the accident until she was traced.

Nigeria has so many things to cry about and certainly this is not one of them, allow Ibinabo Fiberesima to serve her jail term at least it would go a long way in serving as a warning to the so called celebrities that they could be made to face the consequences of their actions.
