Biola Giwa-Adeyemi, sister of the doctor killed in an accident caused by Nollywood actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima, says she should be made to face the law.
Biola, on Wednesday, shared an article which she labeled ‘Ibinabo Fiberersima Vs Lagos State’, in which she said the actress fled the scene of the accident without checking for any survivors, took her license plate and registration out of the car.
She added that people at the scene of the accident recognized her as Ibinabo Febresima, and said she was drunk.
She wrote: “On this faithful day of Feb 26th 2006, along the Lekki Epe Express way, my late brother, Dr. Giwa was driving with his brother and another family friend in his car coming from a meeting in Ajah, they were held up in traffic around the evening time, when this tragic accident happened.
“Ibinabo was driving towards Lekki while the late Dr. Giwa was coming from the other direction facing towards Island, just by shop-rite, when ibinabo’s jeep flipped and lost control from her lane, it jumped over the culvert or pavement that demarcates the road from the oncoming vehicle.
“The speed that skipped and flipped a jeep over the road demarcation will be considered “Reckless and Endangerment” because the VIO department checked the jeep brakes, the engine and all the mechanical and electrical of the jeep but the result shows nothing wrong with the jeep and confirmed the accident as due to “OVER SPEEDING” in which the result was on record.
“After the accident, Ibinabo left the scene of the accident without checking for any survivors, she took the license plate and registration out of the car and fled from the scene, that was considered “HIT AND RUN”. The people at the scene of the accident recognized her as Ibinabo Fibresima, and stated she was drunk...”Driving Under Influence” of whatever she had.
“The State Department of Transportation had to use the Vehicle Identification Number, VIN number to locate the Owner of the jeep, in which the owner was Daniel Wilson. That was my very first time of hearing the name of Ibinabo Febresima.
“The Doctor died at the scene of the accident because the jeep was on top of the Honda accord driven by him and they couldn’t save him on time because of the seat belt and the weight of the jeep, the brother and the other family friend in that car had survived. Did she know the state of mind and the emotional instability of the people involved in that accident up till now, Ibinabo has never been in a coma.
“After all the evidences against her, with the result of the VIO by the State department of Transportation, The DPP office took over and charged her to court and she hired Festus Keyamo in which after reviewing the case, he withdrew by saying he cannot represent her because it’s a bad case.
“Ibinabo was never remorseful, they brought her to meet with me shortly after my brother’s death in GRA Ikeja before my return back to the USA, but her only concern then was to drop the charges against her. I told her that it’s not my family Vs hers but the State Vs her, that where I come from in the USA, we do not interfere with the justice system, that they should do their job and advise her to apologize publicly to the masses and to the family and throw herself to the mercy of the court.
“She said and l quote “I CAN’T DO THAT, BECAUSE IS GOING TO DAMAGE MY CAREER!
“What an ego, she cannot apologize publicly, I feel like kicking her a*s. She’s worried about her stupid career, What happened to the career of the Doctor, who happened to be a Medical Director and the head of the department of physical rehabilitation medicine at General Hospital Lagos.
“On behalf of our family and friends, we really thank the Lagos State Government, the Attorney General, Mr Sasore, DPP, Mrs Odutola and colleagues, Justice Deborah Oluwayemi, Justice Jamilu Yammama Tukur, Justice U.I Udukwe-Anyawu and Justice Tijani Abubakar and everyone for their support. No evil shall befall anyone. As you all go out and come in, may God’s grace and protection abide with each and everyone.
“Ibinabo has never paid a dime to any family member of the late Dr giwa as indicated by her friends, and if she did pay any family member, she needs to start mentioning names now.
“Justice at last, Justice is finally done,” she wrote.
