Nigeria: Court Orders Arrest of Ex-Beauty Queen

Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of the Lagos High Court, Igbosere, yesterday ordered for the immediate arrest of Nollywood actress and ex-beauty queen, Ibinabo Fiberesima.

The order of the court was sequel to the absence of the ex-beauty queen in court yesterday when the matter was mentioned in court. Her lawyer, Kemasuode Wodu, told the court that he had filed a stay of execution of the judgement of the court. Following this, Justice Oluwayemi asked, "Where is the convict?" Mr. Wodu answered that she was sick and currently recuperating at the BMH Hospital in Port Harcourt,
The lawyer tendered a medical certificate which read: "To Whom It May Concern". But this was rejected on the grounds that it was not addressed to the court. Justice Oluwayemi frowned at the absence of the convict, adding that the application for the stay of execution of the judgement would not be heard until she was produced in court.

The judge cited the cases of some convicts who are currently in prison, like Rev. King, to buttress her point. The former beauty queen was last month sentenced to five years imprisonment for dangerous and reckless driving which led to the death of one Dr. Giwa Suraj.

It's all so sad.. A family lost their bread winner, father and husband a few years ago and some other kids are soon going to lose their mum.... It's a no win situation, but justice has to be served... I am sure that if Ibinabo is given the oppurtunity to relive that day, she'll do it differently... If she was driving under the influnce, then what can I say, justice must serve it's course... Life is a mist....

For a populous black nation that's blessed with so much of what the world would desire (talent), we are in the face of the world at all times. If we must shake off the stigma we have been commited to by the world, then we must do things right. The law is no respecter of persons and we must start to do things right by upholding the law. This is one of the reasons why Lagos State is taking shape today. If the LAgos High court judge has passed a sentence upon the accused, then so be it. The question is where was the accused when the sentence was passed? And where are the 'Law Enforcers' (Police) whose duty it is to ensure incarceration? Will the situatiion be like this if it was a poor unknown Nigerian as the accused? Let us do things right because we will stare into the mirrors of our today when we will be helpless as we watch our children dole out exactly what we teach them now. Then, we may be at the receiving end. Let's work to receive that which is good and favourable!
