Ibinabo Fiberesima stripped of Actors Guild of Nigeria's Presidency

Just weeks after Ibinabo Fiberesima was sentenced to 5 years in jail for her involvement in an auto crash that killed Dr Giwa Suraj, a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has stripped her of her position as Actors Guild of Nigeria's President.

The National Secretary of AGN, Femi Durojaiye, released a statement confirming that Ibinabo will step down as the president and Emeka Ike will take over. Read the statement below.

“The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, this morning 23/3/2016 at the application and argument of Counsel to Actors Guild of Nigeria, Barr. Peter Andor Oboyi, struck out Ibinabo’s and BOT suit challenging the nullification of her election to the Presidency of AGN and also challenging the legitimacy of the Presidency of Emeka Ike and his Exco. The implication of this judgement is that Engr. Emeka Ike led Exco remain the only authentic and lawful leaders of Actors Guild of Nigeria,"

"The Honourable Court vehemently reiterated the position of the judicial authority that, Ibinabo, her purported exco members and the Board of Trustees vacate forthwith the office of AGN both at the National and State level and accordingly surrender all AGN assets at their unlawful possession to the incumbent Engr Emeka Ike’s Government.”
