They are currently being arraigned alongside Chidinma’s sister, Egbuchu Chioma from whom the late Ataga’s iPhone 7, was said to have been recovered.
In other news, the House of Representatives have kicked against the multiple media interviews of Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of Super TV CEO, Mr. Usifo Ataga.
The House during plenary yesterday, July 13, expressed concern that since the arrest of Chidinma, she has been paraded around, granting interviews to various several news platforms, thereby causing the internet and news media to be agog with the discussion and dissecting the matter. They, however, asked the police to ensure that there is no repeat of violation of human rights such as media access to arrested persons in the future to avoid compromising the case in a court of law.
Recall that the 300-level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos was arrested on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, over the alleged murder of the Super TV CEO, Mr. Usifo Ataga, in the Lekki area of Lagos.
