Nigerian actress Lilian Afegbai having faced backlash over allegations that her mother, Carol Afegbai, a retired Divisional Police Officer, murdered a student in 2103 is denying the murder allegation.
Afegbai was accused of killing Momodu Ibrahim, a student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) in May 2013. Afegbai, who was then the DPO of Ogida Police Station in Benin City and her orderly, PC Amadin Idahosa, were alleged to have shot Ibrahim and hurriedly buried his body.
Lilian in her response denied the allegations: “As per my mother being dragged for murder, to the best of my knowledge my mother who is now retired did not kill anyone. The police officer (AMADIN IDAHOSA) that was attached to my mother’s station who killed the suspect was sentenced to life imprisonment by Justice R. Irele-Ifijeh of the High Court of Justice, Edo State in Charge No: B/CD/24C/2014.”
She also revealed that Idahosa is currently serving his jail term at the Oko Prison in Benin although he has appealed the matter up to the Supreme Court.
“My spirit will not be dampened by the death threats and cyber bullying. I am a Nigerian youth and we deserve a better Nigeria and I will continually fight until it is fixed. My spirit will never be broken. I will fight for justice and against the system that have put all of us into this mess,” Afegbai wrote on her social media page.
