As Nigerians keep mentioning names of brutal Police officers that had allegedly killed or abused citizens, some people on social media have named Carol Afegbai, mother of Nollywood Actress and former Big Brother Africa housemate, Lilian Afegbai, as the killer of a University of Benin student in 2013.
This comes after the celebrity who has been part of the #EndSARS protest reminded protesters of their purpose for protesting while saying that online protesters have lost focus.
The actress’ mother Carol Afegbai who is now retired was accused of killing one Momodu Ibrahim, UNIBEN student in 2013, while she served as the DPO of Ogida Police station in Edo state.
After Lilian released a video asking Nigerians not to lose focus, they told her to comment on the allegations against her mother.
In reaction, Lilian Afegbai denied that her mother ever killed anyone.
Taking to her Instagram page, the actress wrote that her mother was absolved of the crime and the officer that was involved, one Amadin Idahosa was sentenced to life in prison for the crime.
“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.
“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”
