Does it take a genius to figure out that I reside and study in England?
.

An appropriate comparison would be a fellow third world country example for instance your motherland Sleone .......regardless of whether you reside there presently.... a true genius would get that !!
Come back when you are in the mood !!
 
from ur post, it seems you are new here, yet u know so much about me and how I am safely tucked away in Holland. I will advice u stick to what u know. If your aim of Insulting and following me around is to get the same result from me, then I suggest u read the old threads here. There is nothing u can say or do that will make me stoop so low as to Insult you, definitely not in this life time.

If Nigeria is in a dark state, it is because of wicked, heartless and greedy people and not because people wish for friends, families not to be punished severly for their crimes.... That, is the human nature and not a Nigeria thing.... In Holland a footballer killed someone in a car accident and he was asked to sweep the street and in no time was back playing for the country...... YES a life was lots cause he went over the speed limit and YES he is supposed to be punished severly but he was not......But why didnt the country condem this with one loud voice? Simple, because people like him a lot and just want to see him playing football again.

Finally I guess u didnt join this site because of Khami, so there are other intresting things to do here than insult. I am immnune against that, especially from faceless people that I might never get to see. Be well

Dude you have your location up there in your public profile...

One more thing, stop getting emotional...

...and who says he can not use the English law as a yardstick in this case when you as a Nigerian should know; clearly; that the English law is one of the major laws governing your country.

Would you have validated his arguement had he used a South African case study as well? Afterall, SA is third world country as well...?

Justice has no other name but what it's called and it's irrespective of race,creed, location or gender!

The glaring fact here is that true Justice was not served!
 
What law are you talking about my sister ??

The law that sells alcohol and KaiKai at every street corner ??

or the law that does not conduct breathalizer test to caution its citizens about drinking/driving in Naija ??

What of the law that checks the age for drinking or buying booze in the nearby canteens or clubs ??

Maybe there are bill boards in Nigeria you have seen warning about drunk driving in Nigeria ?? It is a major problem and the department of transportation will have to start somewhere in fixing the problem that is caused by Ogogoro !

Is it the Law that has Road patrol going after dangerous drivers in Nigeria ???

We want to see justice but where is the infrastructure to prevent these kind of tragedies ???

I like Ayesha's suggestion of turning this problem into a public campaign ...a chance to change things around !!

Certainly you too believe in giving people a second chance ...dont u ??

The focus is what will be done from here on to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

2 kobo
2 kobo indeed that worths diddly squat!

When you say infrastructures should be put in place to avert such occurence in the future, what sort of infrastructure would that be, my dear Obariba?

Would it be better Mot'd cars or that some device should be placed in the human body to halt their drinking once they've reached the legal limit? I hope for your sake that you are not blaming this on the government. Did she hit the deceased because there were no road lights or due to misleading traffic signs? I really don't get the point you're trying to drive home here.

You said the focus should be what should be done to prevent a repeat of such incident, right? How about I suggest you advise the offender to not drink when she knows she will drive? I thought common sense should have taken care of that but since you asked, i'm only too obliged to exercise my common sense for your assistance.

Do not even try to tag this on the government! This isn't about bad roads or bad traffic signals. It's about the selfishness and carelessness of Ibinabo to which I painfully admit that she has gone off more than lightly!

For goodness sake! She'll soon be bringing forth a life after taking one! She'll be having some serious Owambe parties for her cohorts once she puts to bed whilst the Doctor's wife would be thinking of the next family member to approach for alms so she can pay her childrens school fees!

Tell me where the justice is here!

Ibinabo Fiberisima should be in Jail!
 
THANK YOU O JARE!
AND FOR THOES WEY WANT HER HEAD MAKE UNA LET ME KNOW SO I FIT TELL UNA WIAH SHE DEY....... IF THE FAMILY HAS ACTUALLY FORGIVEN HER I NO SABI WETIN SAINTS DEM GO GAIN FROM HER DESTRUCTION..... THE LADY HAS GONE THROUGH HELL AND BACK BETTI I GUESS NA UNTIL DEM LOCK AM FOR 1000YRS SOME FIFUL GO SATISFY....... NA DEM GO FIRST CLAP FOR R-KELLY FOR SLEEPING WIF A KID. AS LONG AS NA THEIR FAV AMERICAN CELEBRITY, NOTHING DEY HAPPIN. IF NA NAIJA EHEN! MAKE WE BURN AM WIF PETROL
Khamileon, you're my person, but come, come right next to me and let's dialogue.

Did you really write this or someone put a gun to your head and made you do this? Kai! E for no be you now....why na? I say, why???

On the forgiveness part, I think we've dealt with that and i'm hopeful that you've taken my view on board and pondered well over it so I wouldn't hammer on it.

But, as per the destruction bit? Bros, I no get you o. Who's been destroyed here exactly? She who is has just hooked herself a new man and is expecting a bundle of joy in a few months time or they who have lost a bread winner? A husband, a father, a son! Did you sit to think how many lives the loss of this Doctor would affect? Perhaps he still has parents who toiled to see him through medical school. Who were only too happy to see him graduate thinking that now they can eat the fruit of their labour? Do you know if he had siblings who relied on him for sustainance? How about his children? They no longer have that rock to see them through. Now, PTA meetings will only be attended by mum. No one to teach them how to ride a bike or how to do DIY around the home? Now, mummy would have to be there for them, financially, emotionally and physically. How about mum? No one to share her fears or aspirations with. she now sleeps all by herself in that big bed...

Ibinabo has gone through hell? Fine! Then she should have no problems going to jail! I guess hell must have given her a good practise and from what I believe, no one goes to hell and returns but since she has been and returned, Jail should be easy, peasy, lemon squeezy for her, shouldn't it? Let her go to jail, please. As a celebrity, she would be setting good standards.

Imagine the family of the deceased watching this woman move on with her life. Watching her in movies. How will the children feel?

How dare you use R Kelly as a study case? What corelation does his case have with this? Maybe you care to know that R Kelly didn't exactly hold a gun to the girl's head, neither did he abduct her. Now, I don't support child molestation and I think R Kelly is a dirty, shameful human but what in the name of God has sexual assault to do with taking a human life? One is violation of a child's body, her emotions and what have you but the other is taking out a human life! Worst still, that he was a doctor. Someone who added value to other people! Ibinabo did not only deprive the Doctor's family, but she deprived Nigeria as a whole!

Ibinabo did decide to take a human life by drinking and then getting behind the wheels! Yes! She's a murderer!

Born to lead and follow
people on nr n ass licking comments....why r u folks talking as if none of u have conscience?if ibinabo was ur flesh n blood wudnt u rejoice that shes not gonna be locked up?

she paid for her crime becos the guilt n pain she went thru more than made up for any amount of yrs any judge might wanna jail her.even the drs family forgave her and declared they wanted the case outta court.what just happned with this sentencing is mere formality.ibinabo killed a man cos she was drunk but she came out a new person and on one here has a right to judge her,no not one cos no one is without sin,the crimes some pple commit in their private lives might make her own fade into nothingness.
i judged her when that incident happened but i hve since learned that until u live in a glass house,u will never know the meaning of loss,fear,pain and victory.
pls give her a break!
not true at all my love, they jus had 2 accept the judgement that was passed and have decided to move on. Things happen and only God can judge. But that they decided they wanted the case out of court is a big fat robust lie. No offense intended

Manslaughter: Lagos Appeals Actress’ Conviction
By Davidson Iriekpen, 04.18.2008


The Lagos State Government has asked a Lagos High Court to impose a seven years prison term on Nollywood Actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima, who was convicted last year by an Igbosere Magistrate Court, Lagos, for dangerous and reckless driving and causing the death of one Dr Suraj Giwa.
The magistrate court had on August 17, 2007, after finding her guilty on the two-count charge, imposed a seven and two years prison terms on the counts or N100,000 option of fine.
Mr Olasupo Shasore (SAN), Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, in the appeal brought by the state is contending that "the law creating the offence of dangerous driving causing death has provided for a term of imprisonment as punishment for anyone convicted under the section, hence the magistrate ought not to exercise such arbitrary discretion to impose N100,000 fine in lieu of seven and two years imprisonment on charge, for which the convict was convicted". Ibinabo was charged under section 28 and 29 of the Road Traffic Law, Cap. R10, Volume 2 Laws of Lagos State, 2004 (as amended).
The state is asking the further asking the court to determine, whether under the provisions of 28 Road Traffic Law, which prescribes a punishment of seven years imprisonment on conviction, the magistrate had a discretion to impose a fine of N100,000 in lieu of a term of seven years imprisonment in the light of the provisions of section 382(5) of the Criminal Procedure Law and section 2(a) of the Lagos State Legal Notice no. 7 of 2006.
The High Court is also being asked to determine, whether the trial magistrate acted judiciously and judicially in commuting a seven and two years imprisonment respectively to a N100,000 fine considering the seriousness of the offence.
The court is further asked to determine whether there is any ambiguity (in respect of punishment) in the provisions of the section 28 of the Road Traffic Law Cap. R10, Volume 2 Laws of Lagos State, 2003 to warrant the magistrate to rely on section 2(a) of the LSLN no 7 of 2006 in sentencing the respondent.
The state is arguing that the magistrate court did not have the discretion to give an option of fine of N100,000 since the written law (RTL) has specifically provided that only a term of imprisonment is a commensurate punishment for a serious offence of taking the life of a human being, out of sheer recklessness and negligence.

Are they suggesting that the magistrate was bribed?
 
Some posters comment like primary school pupils.

This so called Nollywood actress is just using acting for her wayward life.
She has no dignity and no integrity.
Any dummy can become Nollywood star once she is fair or can use her loins more than her brains.

I do not regard her as an actress.

Acting is a profession and not prostitution.

Chai for real? Welcome back bro!
 
We should separate the actors from the impostors

Chai for real? Welcome back bro!
Thanks. The break was good for me.

Most of these people being called Nollywood star actresses cannot act when compared to the real but unsung actresses of the Yoruba movies.

One yellow girl or woman acts four Nollywood flicks and she is suddenly Nollywood star actress.

Naijarules should separate the actors from the impostors.

We do not have enough intelligent professionals to let someone who murdered one of them to escape unpunished.

From several samplers to Philip Trimnel to others to Fred Amata.
Who is next?

Please, give me a break.
