I Have Nothing To Do With Ataga's Death - Chidinma

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has described the new claims made by Chidinma Ojukwu, the suspected killer of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, as an “afterthought”.

In a video that went viral on Monday, the undergraduate denied killing the Super TV CEO – a claim that is contrary to her initial confession.

When she was paraded at the police command headquarters on June 24, the suspect had admitted to stabbing the 50-year-old in the neck with a knife after a disagreement.

She said, “Before I was leaving, he stood up to lock the door, but when I got in, I was knocking, and when there was no answer, I opened and the door was already opened, as it wasn’t locked; the duvet and pillow were on the floor.

“The couch was facing the door and the bed was stained with blood already. The floor where he was was filled with blood and then music and TV were on. The room was already disarranged like someone broke in, then I saw him on the floor.

“I just did it; it is not like I had something to do with his death. I never had anything to do with his death.”
