The prime suspect in the murder case of Super TV CEO, Usifo Ataga, Chidinma Ojukwu, has denied killing him. Ataga’s lifeless body was found days after checking into an apartment with the suspect in Lekki, Lagos.
It was gathered that the suspect fled the scene of the crime until the Lagos State police arrested her at her father’s house in Yaba, Lagos.
The suspect while been paraded by the police disclosed that she killed him while he was trying to force himself on her.
She also sought forgiveness from the family of Usifo and pleaded that she does not want to die.
“I regret killing Mr Ataga. I don’t know what my future holds but I don’t want to die. Please, I don’t want to die because of this case. I have not killed before.”
“I totally regret everything I did and I am sorry. Mr Ataga’s family, I am deeply sorry for what I did. If I had my life back, I wouldn’t do anything like that. I am deeply sorry and I hope you forgive me,” Chidinma had said at the time.
But in a video which is currently in circulation, Chidinma said she knows nothing about Ataga’s death.
“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.
