Nollywood actress Lilian Afegbai has denied categorically that her mother is responsible for the death of UNIBEN students in 2013 as various online portals propagate.
The case was resurrected recently on when social media users call for the mother Carol Onyekachi Afegbai to be investigated and charged for murder after her heinous crime which snuffed the life out of the student yet she’s walking as a free woman.
The actress has however mounted a strong defense for her mother with evidence that proves that she’s innocent of what’s brandished about on social media. “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.
