The police in Lagos has paraded the alleged killer of Super TV CEO, a 21-year-old UNILAG student.

The Lagos state police command has arrested and paraded a 21-year-old lady alleged to have killed Michael Usifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, and a director in Super Network Limited.

Ataga, who resides in Banana Island, was reported missing on Sunday, June 13, by his family and friends after he didn’t return to his home in Banana Island and he also didn’t turn up at his Victoria Island office.

All efforts to reach Ataga, who would have turned 50 years old on June 18, proved abortive and this caused distress to his wife and children, who live in Abuja. Unfortunately, his lifeless body was found on Friday morning, June 18, in an Airbnb apartment in Lekki phase 1 with multiple stab wounds.

After a detailed investigation, Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu, a 21-year-old University of Lagos (Unilag) student was picked up by the police at her parent’s home in Alagomeji, Lagos and paraded today, June 24

Chidinma said she was introduced to the deceased by her friend four about months ago.

She mentioned that on the day of the incident, she told her parents that she was going for an ushering job but went on to meet with the deceased so they could have some fun.

She told newsmen that while in the Airbnb apartment, they smoked weed and took drugs which led to an argument between them when she refused to have sex with him.

She said she stabbed him twice before she fled the apartment.

She further told reporters that she withdrew N380, 000 from his account with the intention of using it to pay her school fees.
