NEWS DIRECT has learned that the arraignment of Chidinma Ojukwu, 21, the principal suspect in the murder of Super TV Chief Executive Officer Usifo Ataga, would begin at the Yaba Magistrate Court in Lagos State.
Ojukwu, a University of Lagos 300-level Mass Communication student, is currently in court and will be arraigned alongside two other defendants in the case.
Usifo was found dead with multiple stabs on June 16 at a short let apartment on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I where he had checked in with his lover, Ojukwu.
Ojukwu was consequently arrested on June 23 in her father’s house in Yaba and paraded at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja.
She confessed to stabbing Usifo with a knife under the influence of alcohol and withdrawing N380,000 from the victim’s account with his ATM card. She, however, backtracked later in a video, absolving herself from the murder.
Usifo, aged 50, was buried on July 30 in a low-key ceremony attended by his family members, including his wife, and friends.
