Nollywood actress, Lilian Afegbai, has reacted to allegations circulating the social media that her police mother, CSP Carol Afegbai, allegedly killed a student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Momodu Ibrahim, in May 2013.
KanyiDaily had reported that Nigerians are dragging the actress on Twitter, asking her to produce her mother, CSP Afegbai, who is said to have shot Ibrahim three times in the chest on board daylight, buried him and later exhumed his corpse.
Reacting to the allegations on her Instagram page, Lilian said her mother, who is now retired, did not kill anyone. Rather, Amadin Idahosa was the policeman who killed the student and 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.
“I am a Nigerian youth and we deserve a better Nigeria and I will continually fight until it is fixed,” she wrote.
“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.
“He is currently serving his jail term at the Oko Prison, Benin, although he has appealed the matter up to the Supreme Court.
“My spirit will never be broken. I will fight for justice and against the system that have put all of us into this mess. #endsars #endpolicebrutality.”
This coming amidst the ongoing #EndSARS protest across the country against the SARS tactical unit of the Nigerian Police Force over its brutality, illegal arrest, extortion, extra-judicial killings, among others.
