FULL STORY!! How Chidinma, A 21-Year-Old UNILAG Student, Conspired With Others To Assassinate Super TV CEO, Stole His iPhone
According to Hakeem Odumosu, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu, a 21-year-old UNILAG student who was paraded earlier today for allegedly killing Super TV’s Chief Executive Officer, Michael Usifo Ataga, conspired with other people who are now at large to carry out the crime.
According to a statement made by the state police command’s spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Odumosu revealed this while arraigning the defendant.
A murder case was moved from the Command’s Maroko Division to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti Yaba, for confidential investigation.
The facts of the case are that on 15/06/21 at about 1700hrs, one Chidimma Adaora Ojukwu, a 300 level, undergraduate of the University of Lagos, conspired with others, now at large, and allegedly murdered one Michael Usifo Ataga, m, 50, by stabbing him multiple times with a sharp object at a Short Service Apartment located at No 19, Adewale Oshin Street, Lekki, phase 1, Lagos.
The prime suspect, Chidinma, who had earlier booked for the apartment on 13/6/21 secretly, left the apartment after the deed had been done on 15/6/21 at about 1730hrs.
The suspect was traced down and apprehended at her home in Alagomeji, Yaba-Lagos, at No. 57 Akinwunmi Street. During the search, the main suspect, a University of Lagos Mass Communication student, was discovered with a blood-soaked cloth, presumably worn on the day of the event.
After a scuffle, the suspect admitted to stabbing the dead with a kitchen knife. She further admitted to taking the knife with her as she fled the scene and disposing of it in a dustbin at her home.
It was also found that the suspect took the deceased iPhone as well.
Other accomplices are being sought as part of the investigation.
The case will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is completed,” the CP said, according to Odumosu.
