Lilian Afegbai, a Nollywood actress, says her mother, Carol Afegbai, has no hands in the murder of Ibrahim Momodu, a student of the University of Benin killed in 2013. 

Some Nigerians on Twitter attacked Afegbai after joining the campaign against police brutality claiming that her mother, who retired as a police officer, is guilty of the same crime.

Her mother, Carol, was the divisional police officer (DPO) of Ogida Police station in Benin city when the incident occurred in 2013.

In a post on her Instagram page, Afegbai said a police officer who was attached to her mother at the time has been found guilty and is currently serving a jail term at the Oko prison in Benin City.

“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,” she wrote.

“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.”
