“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.
