The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, currently in detention for manslaughter, now seek bail on health reasons. The three-man panel, presided over by Justice Ndukwe-Anyanwu, said that the appellant failed to attach copies of the judgment that was delivered by the court which affirmed the five years jail sentence imposed on her.
The trial magistrate had earlier given the appellant an option of N100, 000 fine for the offence. This judgment was, however, overturned by the high court, which replaced the option of fine with a five-year jail term. This is coming after the embattled actress’ March 11 failed attempt to secure bail.
In a six paragraph affidavit of urgency deposed to by one Victor Eden, the deponent averred that a tumour was expelled from Ibinabo’s breast.
The court of appeal has fixed April 7 to hear a bail application causing the actress and ex beauty queen to file an appeal through her lawyer, urging the court to set aside the five- year sentence.
