#EndSARS: Lilian Afegbai reacts as her mother, Carol Afegbai is accused of murder during her time as DPO in Benin

Nollywood actress, Lilian Afegbai has been forced to defend herself and her mother after the latter was accused of brutality while working in the police force. 

The actress had taken to social media to blast Nigerians who had a thing or two to say about how people dress to the protest grounds during the #EndSARS protests.

Shortly after sharing the video, Nigerians took to Twitter to remind her about the allegation against her mother, Carol Afegbai.

Carol Afegbai is a retired policewoman who is accused of killing and hurriedly burying a final year student of the University of Benin in 2013.

She took to social media to respond, writing:

“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”

She also shared pictures of court papers to back up her claims. See the pictures below:
