The wheel of information has been churning non stop since one time Nollywood sensation and ex-Beauty Queen, Ibinabo Fiberesima lost her case at the Appeal Court in Lagos and was sent straight to Prison on Friday the 11th of March 2016.
This was a case that was out of the public consciousness as the event in question was a decade ago. In that time, insurgency, terrorism, Abductions and so on have been rampant and therefore drove everything else to the back of the minds of Nigerians.
The actress was jailed for five years and she has since appealed, she will remain in custody for the duration of the legal battle. The reactions following the news have been of shock, not at the harshness of the court’s decision, but more because of the fact that she’s Ibinabo Fibresima– a celebrity, a person the public loves.
