Nollywood actress, Lilian Afegbai has responded to allegations of the alleged murder of one Momoh Ibrahim, a final year student of UNIBEN by her mother, a former CSP.
The actress had been called out on Twitter with shreds of evidence alleging the involvement of her mother, retired CSP Carol Afegbai in the cold murder of a student in 2013.
In reaction, the actress took to Instagram to debunk the claims while stating that her mother is innocent. She added that the officer who took the shot is currently serving a life sentence in prison.
Lilian Afegbai further stated that despite the death threats and cyberbullying since the news broke, she will not be silenced in her fight against police brutality.
She wrote, “My spirit will not be dampened by the death threats and cyberbullying. 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,” She added.
