    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 !!

    ...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!

    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!

    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!

    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

    "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.

    We should separate the actors from the impostors

    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.
