Following the search for the killer of Super TV CEO, Usifo Ataga, who was confirmed dead days earlier, it has been reported that a 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu, has confessed to stabbings the CEO to death in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
According to reports, She said this at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja on Thursday after being arrested as a suspect by the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.
Ojukwu, a 300-level student of Mass Communication, disclosed that she has been having an affair with Ataga for about four months before the ugly incident.
According to her, “We were in the lodge smoking. He was trying to make advances on me. I was tired and he became violent on it. I let him have his way. Towards afternoon, he ordered roofies. We took it together and ate food. He became high. I was still not happy with the first one (sex) that we had, so, I was staying on my own, smoking and drinking. He, too, was on his own.”
She added that, “He came to me and I was like I am not happy with what he did. I was like, ‘You don’t help me, you don’t assist me with anything, you are just playing with me around’. He was like, ‘Take my ATM and withdraw what you want’.”
She also disclosed that, “He later became violent trying to get to me and I was resisting and defending myself. At some point, he hit my head on the wall and I also retaliated.”
Meanwhile, she confessed that after stabbing the late CEO, she withdrew N380,000 from his account using his ATM card.
