Court remands Chidinma, alleged killer of Super TV CEO, in prison for 30 days
A Magistrate Court in Yaba on Monday remanded Chidinma Adora Ojukwu and Adedapo Quadri over alleged murder of Chief Executive Officer, of Super TV, Usifo Ataga.
Magistrate Mrs Adeola Adedayo remanded her for the first instant 30 days pending legal advice from the Director of Public prosecution DPP.
Chidinma is a 300 level Mass Communication Department student of the University of Lagos and has been the prime suspect of the murder.
The media entrepreneur was stabbed to death and left in the pool of his own blood inside a Lagos hotel on June 15.
Chidinma was thereafter arrested in connection with the murder.
The 21-year-old student had earlier confessed to stabbing Ataga “twice on the neck side,” alleging that the businessman forcefully had sex with her.
“I threw the knife to the bed and he was going for it but I also went for it. He dragged the knife with me and it broke and he fell on the floor,” she had said.
But Chidinma in July made a dramatic u-turn and denied being involved in Ataga’s death.
She, however, admitted that they spent time together, drinking and smoking before he died.
Chidinma however claimed that she was not inside the apartment at the time he was killed.
“I didn’t injure anybody. I don’t know who must have come into the apartment, and did that… I don’t know who that person is. I don’t know what happened. I did not kill him,” the suspect said.
