He later tried to head back to the UK but was arrested at the airport and extradited to Nigeria. He is as of now, banished from the UK for the next 15 years.
2. Ibinabo Fiberesima
On the 26th of February 2006, Nollywood actress and former Actors Guild of Nigeria National president Ibinabo Fiberesima was driving along the popular Lekki-Epe expressway when she lost control of the wheel, veered into the inbound lane and crashed her car into a certain Suraj Giwa’s car, which resulted in his death. Ibinabo Fiberesima was convicted and sentenced to five years in jail by Justice Deborah Oluwayemi of a Lagos State High court in 2009. However, the actress was later granted a N2million bail following an appeal filed by her lawyer, Nnaemeka Amaechi. While a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, with Ibinabo Fiberesima having been found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to five years imprisonment, which she appealed now to the level of the Supreme Court, it has been alleged that that the actress newly found political aspiration was questionable. Especially, as she allegedly turned down the demand for an apology by the family of the deceased.
3. Rich Oganiru
The name Rich Oganiru might not ring a bell, but he is one of the finest Nollywood actors in the good old days of Nollywood. According to reports from credible source in 2012, Rich Oganiru allegedly killed his wife by poisoning her in a quest to acquire her property. The wife was said to have been hospitalized for three months for an undisclosed ailment in an Abuja hospital with the Nollywood actor abandoning her until the last day she was to be discharged, before Rich Oganiru came to the hospital to take her home. On getting home, she died that same day. Police sources however told Saturday Vanguard that though investigation into the death and alleged murder of the wife was still ongoing, Mr. Rich Oganiru has been granted bail. The allegation was that Rich Oganiru murdered his wife through poison. Though our investigation showed he did not treat her like a wife deserves to be treated and there was nothing to show that she died or was killed by poison. The report alleged that the woman was not his first wife, as the first wife also died years back and that Rich Oganiru was in a very poor state of life before he met the Abuja based multi-millionaire who transformed his life in a matter of months.
