Police in Lagos state have has the public to disregard the new revelation disclosed by Chidinma Ojukwu over the death of the Super TV boss, Ataga Usifo.
The undergraduate student who had earlier narrated how she stabbed Usifo to death has in a new video claimed she knew nothing about his death.
Following this, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, said the new claim by the UNILAG 300L student was an afterthought.
According to the commissioner, “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.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, had urged the public to dismiss the interview.
Chidinma in the new video had narrated that she found Ataga’s corpse after returning to the service apartment where both of them lodged at Lekki, Lagos State.
She 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.”
