It's in some dictionaries, but I've never come across is being used.

'alibi' is a noun.

It can definitely be used as a verb. The definition of the verb form is 'to give an excuse; offer a defense.' For example, "to alibi for being late."

"Who would alibi for that guy? "

I saw this sentence in newspaper, so I think it can be used as a verb.
