Last week, the Court of Appeal in Lagos dismissed an appeal filed by president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima which challenged Lagos High Court judgement sentencing her to five years in prison for the death of Dr. Giwa Suraj.

Following social media reactions, her son penned a heartfelt note, asking Nigerians to pray for their mother. And now, popular OAP Daddy Freeze of CoolFM has called for her pardon.

According to him, “Should Ibinabo go to Jail for 5 years???

Daddy Freeze wrote in an Instagram post, "I ran a poll on the Roadshow on @coolfmlagos today, and callers voted 6:1 in favor of her serving the sentence.  Do I agree? Well, no." The OAP continued, and they added that her children shouldn’t be deprived their mother, plus there are other measures to punishing the former beauty queen for the incident that led to the death of another man.

Well, should she go to jail? Here’s what Daddy Freeze has to say:

"Let’s not deprive her children of their mother and not further traumatized them with the negativity associated with their mum being an ex-convict.

However, a N100,000 fine? Seriously???? what can 100k buy in Nigeria today??? Not even an iPhone 6! Probably an iPhone 5s at the most! So are you saying a woman would be deprived of her husbands love, care and intimacy in exchange for an iPhone 5s??? Or the children would be told "sorry guys daddy is gone but here is an iPhone 5s for you guys to share" really???

I am of the opinion that she should be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the children. This responsibility should be directly proportional to her income. Also, a portion of her income should go to the wife unless she, (the wife) states otherwise. No amount of money can replace a loved one. However, taking financial responsibility could help bring closure to the bereaved family.

I pray she is pardoned but she needs to show empathy and remorse, while being responsible for the family of the deceased.
