Police reveal how they used ICT to track killer of Super TV CEO


The arrest of Chidinma Ojukwu, suspected killer of Super TV boss, Michael Usifo Ataga, has been attributed to the Information and Communication Technology unit of the Lagos State Police Command.

In a statement released by the Command’s spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, entitled: ‘Lagos Security: Police Go Tough on Armed Robbers, Miscreants’, it heaped praise on its newly created ICT unit introduced on the watch of the incumbent Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu.

The statement read partly, “The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, recently established ICT/Tracking Unit at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba-Lagos, to adopt scientific and forensic measures of unraveling crimes and criminality in Lagos State.

“The unit, named D23, headed by SP Kasumu Rilwan, a computer scientist, has been instrumental to the landmark achievements and many feats recorded by the command under the watch of CP Hakeem Odumosu, including the latest arrest of the prime suspect in the alleged murder of Mr Michael Usifo Ataga, one Chidimma Adaora Ojukwu on 23rd June, 2021.

“Similarly, the Commissioner of Police recently created two Squads, the Special Squad and the Strike Team, at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja-Lagos, to complement the existing department and units of the command in combating crimes in the state. The new Squads, as well, have played many roles in suppressing and keeping criminals and hoodlums at bay in Lagos State.”
