Lilian Afegbai has responded after facing backlash over accusations that her mother Carol Afegbai, a retired senior police officer, murdered a university student in 2013.
Social media users on Friday had called out the Nollywood actress after she slammed critics accusing her of wearing flashy attires to the #EndSARS protests as well as losing focus of the movement.
Soon after, the aggression from Nigerians who are currently protesting police brutality, shifted after they brought to light a murder case involving her mother Carol Afegbai. Mrs Afegbai was accused of killing Momodu Ibrahim, a student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) in May 2013.
The widow 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.
“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,” Afegbai wrote addressing the accusations on her Instagram page.
Lilian further went ahead and denied the allegations while sharing documents to prove. “As per my mother being dragged for murder, to the best of my knowledge my mother who is now retired did not kill anyone,” she wrote.
“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 never be broken. I will fight for justice and against the system that have put all of us into this mess,” she added.
