The 21-year-old student of University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu, who allegedly killed SUPER TV Chief Executive Officer, Usifo Ataga, reportedly used the name ‘Jewel’ to book the short let apartment where Ataga was stabbed to death.
The apartment is located on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I, Lagos.
This is according to preliminary police report, which also revealed that several calls placed to the phone number with which Chidinma booked the apartment didn’t go through after Ataga’s body was discovered in the room on Wednesday, June 16.
The preliminary police investigation stated that Chidinma invited the late Ataga into the apartment on Tuesday, June 15, while the man was found dead around 1pm the following day by a worker who wanted to clean the room.
The report read in part, “Mogbo reported that around 3pm of June 16, 2021, she received a call from her security guard on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I where she has one flat being used as a short let apartment.
“She further stated that the security man informed her that one Jewel with a foreign phone number who rented the apartment invited one Usifo Ataga to the apartment yesterday (June 15) and that about 1pm of June 16 when the cleaner wanted to clean the room, he discovered that the door had been broken.
