The Edo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry has ordered the arrest of retired CSP, Carol Afegbai for failing to appear before it to explain her alleged complicity in the murder of a student of University of Benin, Ibrahim Momodu in 2015. Carol is actress Lilian Afegbai’s mum.

At the resumed sitting of the panel yesterday, a member of the panel, named A. B. Thomas said that Afegbai who was then Divisional Police Officer of Ogida police station when Momodu was killed has no right not to have appeared before the panel to explain her roles in the killing if she has nothing to hide from the public.

Thomas argued that if the court had not tried her then when the case was first instituted, it was because she was not included in the suit but added that as it is now; she is a party to the case.

He said: “That we ordered her arrest and that she should be brought to this court here. If she was not arrested in the high court, if she was not arrested in the court of Appeal, it is because she was not a party, it was state versus the man who pulled the trigger but before us here, she is a member to the party and if we just go ahead to conclude my Lord, it will seem she is above the law.

“Therefore, we summon the Commissioner of Police to produce Mrs. Carol Afegba before this panel”, he said.

In her ruling, Chairman of the panel, Justice Ada Ehigiamusoe (rtd) ordered the immediate arrest of Carol Afegbai.

She said: “Earlier, the panel had summoned the respondent to appear before this panel in today’s proceedings and it is on record that she has failed to do so.

“It is of the view therefore of this panel that the respondent having failed to appear before the said panel, a warrant of arrest should be issued against her to appear before the said panel.

“Accordingly, it is hereby ordered that a warrant of arrest be issued forthwith on the said respondent who is named Carol Afegbai who shall appear before this panel following the order of this panel on the 9th day of December, 2020”,  she said.

The late Ibrahim Momodu was a 500 Level student of Faculty of Laboratory Science, University of Benin as at the time he was killed close to his family house at No 1, Igbobaewaye Street, off Siluko road by Textile Mill junction.

In a related development, a lawyer, Abraham Oviawe who is counsel to one Solomon Obode has prayed the panel to invite the police officers who were allegedly involved in the killing of Benson Obode as the counsel feared that the alleged killers may have escaped from the Oko Correctional Centre and the Benin Maximum Correctional Centre along Sapele road, Benin City.
