Cecilia Ibru returns to the social scene

Former Managing Director of defunct Oceanic Bank, Mrs. Cecilia Ibru is back on the social scene. The pretty wife of Olorogun Michael Ibru staged a surprise comeback when she appeared as one of the guests at the wedding ceremony of Eyituoyo, son of Vanguard newspapers publisher, Sam Amuka Pemu to former Miss Oladele Funmi Adeshina.

The ceremony held at Yaba Baptist Church, Commercial Avenue, Yaba, Lagos, on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Mrs. Ibru, was decked in a golden lace, brown headgear and dark eye glasses.

She scaled down her social activities since 2010 when she was convicted of mismanaging Oceanic Bank’s assets. Justice Dan Abutu of Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos sentenced her to six months in prison. The jail term ran concurrently. She spent most of her term shuttling one hospital to another due to her ill health. There was even a time she reportedly relocated to the UK.

And when many thought it was all ever for the ex banker after she forfeited properties worth billions, she is steadily making a comeback on the scene.

A-list personalities like Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Mr. Chief Biodun Shobanjo, ex governors and powerful business people graced the colourful wedding of Mr. And Mrs. Tuoyo Amuka.
