A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday sacked the Ibinabo Fiberisima-led executive of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN). In his verdict, Justice James Tsoho declared the election that produced Ibinabo and others into office as null and void. The judge said the election was conducted against an order of court that parties should maintain status quo. He ruled that the Incorporated Trustees of AGN disobeyed the court order. He ordered Ibinabo to henceforth stop parading herself as the AGN President, as well as other national officers that emerged from the said election that brought them into office. Justice Tsoho also ordered Ibinabo and all the national officers of her executive to render full accounts of monies generated by the AGN under her, including details of income and expenditure. Besides, he ordered that a comprehensive audit of the accounts of AGN be conducted within 90 days of the date of delivery of the judgment. The suit that brought about the judgment was filed by an actor, St. Maradona Mikevine. St. Mikevine, who was the National Treasurer in the election that produced another popular actor, Emeka Ike as AGN President, had filed the suit to contest Ibinabo's election as AGN President.
