The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has described the new claims made by Chidinma Ojukwu, the suspected killer of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, as an “afterthought”.
In an interview with Crime Fighters, the 21-year-old undergraduate denied killing the Usifo, a claim that is contrary to her initial confession.
According to her, “I went out to get food but when I came back I noticed that someone already broke in because the door wasn’t locked. The duvet and the pillows were on the floor, the couch was facing the door with the bed stained with blood already. (watch the video here).
The room was already disarranged like someone broke in, then I saw him on the floor that I didn’t know what to do that was why I took my stuff and his ATM and left.”
Reacting, Odumosu in a statement, insisted that the police have the suspect on tape during her confession.
“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, the investigation will prove that,” he said.
