Nollywood actress and reality TV star, Lilan Afegbai has reacted to the allegation leveled against her mother, Carol Afegbai.
It was alleged that the Nollywood actress’ mother, now retired, was the officer that she killed a UNIBEN student Ibrahim Momodu in 2013, during her years in service.
Taking to her Instagram page to clear the air, 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.
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.
