The latest accusations made by Chidinma Ojukwu, the alleged killer of Super TV’s Chief Executive Officer, Usifo Ataga, have been termed as a “afterthought” by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.
The undergraduate denied killing the Super TV CEO in a video that went viral on Monday, contradicting her previous confession.
According to her, the dead had locked the room before she left, so when she returned, she was astonished to find it unlocked.
She went on to say that she departed with a suitcase holding his credentials since she was unsure what to do now that he was deceased.
“I went out to get food but when I came back I noticed that someone already broke in because the door wasn’t locked.
“The duvet and the pillows were on the floor, the couch was facing the door with the bed stained with blood already.
“The room was already disarranged like someone broke in, then I saw him on the floor that I didn’t know what to do that was why I took my stuff and his ATM and left,” she said.
Reacting, Odumosu in a statement, insisted that the police have the suspect on tape during her confession.
“That is the trait of an active criminal; she was here, we recorded her. The night she was arrested, we recorded her at the state CIID, even the lady that rented the place to her, we recorded her and we have all that. If she now has an afterthought, the investigation will prove that,” he said.
He also urged the public to disregard the recent interview, adding that Chidinma remained a prime suspect and whatever was said in the video would not change the facts.
