The Lagos State Police Command has apprehended a 21 years old student of the University of Lagos (Unilag), Chidinma Ojukwu for allegedly killing the CEO of Super TV, Osifo Ataga.

According to reports, CRIMECHANNELS learnt that the suspect stabbed the victim multiple times on his neck before fleeing the crime scene, in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

Speaking to newsmen at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja on Thursday, June 24, where she was paraded as a suspect by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, she claimed that an argument broke out between her and the deceased, who happened to be her lover.

She said, “I and Ataga, have been in a relationship for the past 4 months. 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 you did. I was like, ‘You don’t help me, you don’t assist me with anything, you are just playing with me around’. He then told me to take his ATM card and withdraw anything I 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.”

“When I discovered he was dead, I ran out of the apartment, and went to withdraw the sum of 380,000 naira from his account, using his ATM card” she narrated.

Meanwhile, Odumosu said that the Police have arrested the owner of the apartment where the crime took place in. He also said that the Police have blocked the victim’s account so that no one will be able to withdraw money from it.
