When would this 2 sheath these drawn swords? It is already becoming like a bad Nollywood script, with each combatant surely not ready to concede any yard. First it was Clarion that threw the first salvo, then Ibinabo not wanting to look wimpish released her own salvo, now Clarion has come forth with another below the belt shot that is going to reverberate, for quite a while. She seem to have opened a Pandora box of evil deeds. Hear her-
''I am not on the same level with Ibinabo Fibresima professionally, educationally or in any other form. I find that she is deliberately misleading the public and wanting to push the issues at stake under the table with her so-called open letter. I will not allow her to do that.Item ‘U’ of the electoral guideline of AGN disqualified her. No convicted person can stand for election in any post. She was convicted for manslaughter and she was given a jail sentence which she served. There is a court injunction stopping Ibinabo from parading herself as the AGN president. This is the copy of the judgment. I have it. Manslaughter has no option of fine. Her sentence was reduced from seven years to five years and we all know she went to jail. The judgment reads in part, ‘there is proof that she drove recklessly and caused the death of Dr. Sura Giwa contrary to the road traffic laws of Lagos State.’ She was drunk. How could this person be the face of AGN?”

The court injunction of 2011 and 2013 was forwarded to the presidency. The criminal conviction of manslaughter was sent to the presidency. The president is supposed to be a symbol of the supremacy of the rule of law. He disregarded the law in recognising Ibinabo as president of AGN. The president is now saying there is no law in this country. So the AGN has become an ethnic grouping. This is a professional body of actors. It is not a Niger Delta solidarity platform.
Some actors have even explained to me why they followed her. They said they were taken there on a fraudulent arrangement for her to use and get what she wanted. Would she really have approached me for a thing like that?”I have the data of every government house she has been to. No single chapter has seen a dime for running the guild. She went to Ondo State and she was given N500, 000. What chapter did she inaugurate in Ondo State? The guild wasn’t set up to go begging from one state government to another.”
In 1989 when she was running Pyramid Club in Lagos, she was 22. How can she say 25 years later that she is just turning 40? I have known her a long time. I know what I am saying when I say she is not a professional actor.”With this newly released lethal gunshots from the hips, what are we to expect from IB, does she have her own 'dirts' on Clarion to release too? Or would she let sleeping dogs lie? Let us wait and see. Truth be told this new salvo from CC is totally below the belt and is just bringing back to fore, a time in the life history of IB she wouldn't want any one to be reminded of. But like it is said, ''all is fair in love & war'', so anything goes abi? The beauty of the whole matter is that, the more they go at each other, the more fun for everyone.
