Nollywood actress Lilian Afegbai has responded after facing backlash over allegation that her mother Carol Afegbai, a retired senior police officer, killed a student in 2013.
Lilian’s mother was accused of killing Momodu Ibrahim a student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) in May 2013.
Mrs Afegbai who was then the divisional police officer of Ogida Police Station in Benin City and her orderly Amadin Idahosa, were alleged to have shot Ibrahim and hurriedly buried his body.
However, responding on Saturday, Lilian wrote on Instagram that the allegation was false.
“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.
