Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of Super TV CEO, Usifo Ataga, has denied killing him. This denial was made in a video interview that went viral on Monday, 12th June.
The viral video is reported to be contrary to her initial confession, of stabbing the 50-year-old in the neck with a knife, during a misunderstanding.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, has reacted to the video, saying that it was just an afterthought, and that Chidinma is still a suspect.
The commissioner stated that her earlier confession was recorded on a tape.
“That is the trait of an active criminal; she was here, we recorded her. The night she was arrested, we recorded her at the state CIID, even the lady that rented the place to her, we recorded her and we have all that. If she now has an afterthought, investigation will prove that.”
The interview was conducted by Crime Fighters, where the 21-year-old suspect 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 didn’t know what to do, so I took my things with his things and left. I was afraid; I didn’t know if I had raised the alarm, they would have arrested me for doing it because I and him were just the only people in the room.
“I just left; I was packing my things to leave, then I noticed that my clothes were stained, so I changed to another. I took the bag that contained his ID and documents like bank statements. So, I just packed them and put them into the nylon and left.
“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.”
