Embattled actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima who recently bagged a 5-year sentence for the death of one Dr Giwa Suraj who she killed in an auto accident along Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos in 2016 has opened up on her ordeal. The ex beauty queen disclosed to Vanguard that she always reach out to the family of the deceased.
“I am always praying for the family of the accident victim, Dr. Giwa Suraj.
“I almost committed suicide the first time I was jailed. Since the incident happened, I have learnt how not to trust anybody any more. I put my trust now in the Lord and this is better explained in the new song I recorded. The music captures my story.
“Emotionally, I have been drained and to some extent humiliated, even in public. I wasn’t happy that I was involved in that accident. I have said it over and over again that I’m deeply sorry that it ever happened.
“I don’t know how else to atone for the accident. I started begging my victim’s family from the very day the accident happened. My family attended the funeral rites and service of songs and I even attended the 40 days prayer when I was not strong enough to move about.
“I met with the mother and the wife of the deceased. There’s virtually nothing I didn’t do to plead with the family of the deceased to let me off the hook. I’m still pleading with them as I speak with you right now, even though they banned me from coming to see them, they warned me to stop coming to their house. So, I can only pray for them and that’s what I did always.”
