Nollywood actress Lilian Afegbai has come out to throw her support behind her mother for allegedly killing a UNIBEN student in 2013 backed with evidence.
The mother of the actress, Carol Onyekachi Afegbai was accused by some social media users of shooting to death a student of UNIBEN. They also called on the federal government and the Nigerian police to arrest and probe Carol.
Reacting to the accusations, Lilian Afegbai has debunked rumors and has shared documents on her Instagram page which suggests her mother didn’t kill anyone. According to the post, the real murderer Amadin Idahosa is currently in jail at Oko in Benin after being sentenced to life imprisonment.
“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 has put all of us into this mess.
