Ikeja, Lagos – A 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu has been arrested by the Lagos state police command for allegedly killing the chief executive officer of Super TV, Michael Usifo Ataga, in the Lekki area of the state.

According to the report, Ojukwu, a 300-level student of Mass Communication, said she had been in a romantic relationship with 50-year-old Ataga for about four months before the ugly incident occurred on June 15, 2021, at a Short Service Apartment, situated at No 19, Adewale Oshin Street, Lekki, Phase 1, Lagos.
The Nation also reports that the undergraduate said she and Ataga were “having fun” when an argument broke out and she stabbed him twice.
She said: “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 (s3x) 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.”
