Ataga Usifo’s murder: Chidinma’s video confession played in court

A video where Chidinma Ojukwu confessed to the murder of Super TV CEO, Michael Usifo Ataga, has been played in a session at a Lagos high court.

Chidinma, a 300-level student of the University of Lagos, was seen confessing to stabbing Usifo to death.

The court sat on Tuesday in a resumed trial and viewed the grim footage of Ataga’s lifeless body recorded shortly after he was found in a Lagos serviced apartment.

She is standing trial for the alleged offence alongside her sister and third defendant, Chioma Egbuchu, and Adedapo Quadri. They have been on trial since October 12, 2021, when they were arraigned at the high court before Justice Yetunde Adesanya.

According to the Lagos State Government, which is prosecuting them, the alleged murder took place on June 15, 2021, at 19, Adewale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

At the resumption of proceedings, the prosecution played the video recording from a Compact Disc (CD) on a large screen in the courtroom.

It showed Ataga lying on the floor facing up with his hands spread open wearing a white singlet and boxers stained with blood.

His head was close to the wall and there was blood on the floor on his right-hand side. There were also large blood stains on the floor and the pillow and duvet cover.

The video also showed Ojukwu narrating how she killed Ataga during interrogation by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Olusegun Bamidele, from the Intelligence and Tactical Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba.

The defendant said she met Ataga through a friend and they started speaking to each other and that on June13, 2021, he asked her to look for a place for them to stay, so she got the short-let apartment where they ate, drank, took drugs and where he was killed.
