I killed Ataga myself, Chidinma confesses in a video

The Lagos High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square yesterday watched the chilling footage of Chidinma Ojukwu confessing to stabbing to death the Chief Executive Officer of SuperTV, Usifo Michael Ataga, all by herself.

It also viewed the grim footage of Ataga’s body recorded shortly after he was found in a Lagos short-let apartment apartment.

Miss Ojukwu, a 300-level, Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, is the prime suspect in Ataga’s murder.

She is standing trial for the alleged offence alongside her sister and third defendant Chioma Egbuchu, and second defendant Adedapo Quadri.

They have been on trial since October 12, 2021, when they were arraigned at the high court before Justice Yetunde Adesanya.

According to the Lagos State Government which is prosecuting them, the alleged murder took place on June 15, 2021, at 19, Adewale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

At the resumption of proceedings yesterday the prosecution played the video recording from a Compact Disc (CD) on a large screen in the courtroom.

It showed Ataga lying on the floor facing up with his hands spread open wearing a white singlet and boxers shorts stained with blood. His head was close to the wall and there was blood on the floor on his right hand side.

The video also showed Ojukwu narrating how she killed Ataga, during interrogation by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Olusegun Bamidele from the Intelligence and Tactical Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Panti, Yaba.

The defendant said she met Ataga through a friend and they started speaking to each other and that on June 13, 2021, he asked her to look for a place for them to stay, so she got the short-let apartment where they ate, drank, took drugs and where he was killed.
