A Federal High Court in Lagos has struck out a case instituted by popular actor, McSmith Ochendo, seeking to remove Ibinabo Fiberesima as the President of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).

ochendo_vs_fiberesimaJustice J. Yinusa ruled on December 2, 2013, Monday that the matter brought before the court by Ochendo lacks merit.

The actor addressed court seeking an injunction to remove Ibinabo from office because she is an ex-convict.

Justice J. Yinusa stated that Ochendo cannot seek Ibinabo’s removal because he did not contest in the election that produced the ex-beauty queen as the AGN President. Therefore the case was struck out for lack of merit.

However, Ochendo will not give up. In his interview with Nigeriafilms.com after the judgement, the actor said he would appeal the ruling. He claimed that the matter, which was brought before the court, was not addressed by the judge. According to him, Ibinabo shouldn’t have contested the election in the first place.

On her part, the AGN President expressed her joy on the outcome of the case in court. She described the ruling as a victory for the guild.

It would be recalled Ibinabo Fiberesima has now spent over a year in office in her two-year single term. She was sworn into office in November 2012.
