Reports indicate that the Super Tv boss, Michael Usifo Ataga’s hands were tied with a rope, and had his iPad and iPhone stolen from him after he was allegedly murdered in cold blood by 21-year-old Chindinma Ojukwu.
The deceased’s lifeless body was found on Thursday, June 17, 2021, in an Air bnb, after he was murdered by University of Lagos student, Chindinma, who was said to be his “side chick” or “lover”.
A source disclosed that Chindinma took the deceased’s gadgets to Computer Village to wipe off all data on the gadgets in what is commonly called flashing.
According to the source, Ojukwu told investigators that one Feni introduced her to Ataga and she had high hopes of making a fortune off him.
But she started complaining that the man was not giving her as much money as she hoped for.
“She was angry that each time they met, he would just give her small money like transport fare and she wanted to get back at him. We do not believe she acted alone nor in self-defence. The girl is yet to really say what transpired that day but when she is confronted with concrete evidence, she will open up by force.
“She claimed they took roofies together. How come she then remembers everything that happened while she was under the influence of roofies? She also claimed the man was struggling with her but she is yet to say at what point she tied the man up.
“Was it after stabbing him twice on the neck as she claimed or when she stabbed him on the stomach while he was lying helpless on the floor?
“If it was self-defence, why did she not call for help? Instead, she changed her blood-stained clothes, left the scene and went to withdraw money from the man’s account. She did not also tell anyone about the incident nor did she run to the police to report herself,” said the source.
The police are bent on unveiling mysteries surrounding the murder, including Chindinma’s accomplices, as they were not convinced that the suspect acted alone.
