A 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu has told of how she killed the CEO of Super TV, Usifo Ataga.
Ataga was recently found dead in the pool of his blood at a service apartment in Lekki area of Lagos last Thursday sparking a manhunt for his killer amid prima facie evidence he was murdered by a lady he was in a romantic relationship with.
The police on Thursday paraded Chidinma, a 300-level mass communication undergraduate before newsmen who owned up to the crime, narrating how their four-month old romance turned sour.
According to her: “We were in the lodge smoking. He was trying to make advances on me. I was tired and he became violent on it. I let him have his way. Towards afternoon, he ordered roofies. We took it together and ate food. He became high. I was still not happy with the first one (sex) that we had, so, I was staying on my own, smoking and drinking. He, too, was on his own.
“He came to me and I was like I am not happy with what he did. I was like, ‘You don’t help me, you don’t assist me with anything, you are just playing with me around’. He was like, ‘Take my ATM and withdraw what you want’.
“He later became violent trying to get to me and I was resisting and defending myself. At some point, he hit my head on the wall and I also retaliated.
“At some point, he was chasing me around the kitchen cabinet. I took a knife and stabbed his neck. I approached the door and he followed me. I stabbed him twice on the neck side. I threw the knife to the bed and he was going for it but I also went for it. He dragged the knife with me and it broke and he fell on the floor.”
The undergraduate also disclosed that after stabbing the late CEO, she withdrew N380,000 from his account using his ATM card.
