Actress, Lilian Afegbai Speaks Up Over Murder Allegations Trailing Her Mother Who’s A Policewoman

Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Lillian Afegbai, who is popularly known as Lilly Afe, is one of the sought after actresses in the industry.

She is an Ex Big Brother Africa Housemate. In 2018 she won the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) for Indigenous movie of the Year for her production debut ‘Bound’.

Afegbai is from Edo state, Nigeria. She is the daughter of CSP Carol Afegbai who’s currently going through a backlash following allegations of murder and police brutality in Edo State.

Nigerians yesterday called out Lilian on social media after she slammed critics who accused her of wearing flashy attires to the #EndSARS protests as well as losing focus of the movement.

Soon after, Nigerians, who are currently protesting police brutality, brought to light a murder case involving her mother, Carol Afegbai in 2013. Carol, a senior police officer, was accused of killing Momodu Ibrahim, a student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) in May 2013.

According to Sahara Reporters, the murder of Momodu Ibrahim allegedly by Afegbai had generated controversy so much that Edo Political Forum (EPF), based in Benin City, urged the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed D. Abubakar, to investigate the killing.

Ibrahim who was a student of the University of Benin had reportedly been buried hurriedly without the consent of his family, the report stated.

In the defense of her mom, Lily Afegbai wrote:

“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. #endsars #endpolicebrutality”
