He made the revelation in an interview with Punchng. While reacting to the ruling by the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos which removed Ibinabo Fiberesima as the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria and made him the president, he said: “My victory at the court has nothing to do with Ibinabo’s predicament.
This case is different and if Ibinabo is not going to go to jail for my own case, they should come and beg me. Instead of them to come and beg me, they are still going to the press to say all sorts of rubbish about me. There is still a second jail term for Ibinabo.
It is called contempt of court and it would also include Segun Arinze. People have threatened to kill me but I am not scared of them. I am waiting for them and I would look them in the face and tell them that they are evil and I am righteous. The people saying that I am happy about the sentence are actually Ibinabo’s enemies.
This is a lady that was used because of the powers she could garner and control. Some people were using her and now that they have messed her up, they are still using her in prison. What I was only telling Nigerians is that people of Ibinabo’s status do not contest for any public office.
Should we stop telling the truth? She had a criminal issue in court. Let’s leave sentiments, we have to be realistic. It is rather unfortunate that she is surrounded by the wrong people and advisers; she was surrounded by sycophants. Instead of them to tell her how to solve her problem, they were pushing her to jail and now that she is in jail, they will not leave her alone.
Why did they not advise her to form a team and go to Giwa’s family house and roll on the floor for forgiveness? They could have sent her away for days but they would not send her away forever. We are a cultural people, I am sure that after going repeatedly, an elder in the family would plead on her behalf. She should have been very remorseful but she wasn’t. We told Nigerians that some of us would not agree but they began to call us names because we took the matter to court.” Cc: Punchng
