Manslaughter: Ibinabo Fiberesima Seeks Bail On Health Grounds

Nollywood actress and ex-beauty queen, Ibinabo Fiberesima, has urged the Supreme Court to set aside the judgment of the Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal, which last Friday affirmed the   five years’ imprisonment imposed on her by a Lagos State High Court.

In a six-paragraph affidavit of urgency filed in support of her bail application, one
Victor Eden said Fibresima had just undergone surgery to remove breast cancer.

Eden said:

“Her (Fiberesima) wound has not fully healed and, as such, she is afraid that her continued stay in the prison may endanger her life as she will not have access to a proper medical attention.

“It will be in the interest of justice and for her health and safety for the appellant to be admitted to bail pending the hearing and determination of the appellant’s appeal before the Supreme Court.”

But the bail application suffered a setback on Thursday as the Court of Appeal decided it was ‘incompetent’.
