The Nigerian Police has reacted to a statement by Chidinma Ojukwu, the alleged killer of Super TV Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Usifo Ataga.
Recall that Ojukwu had during a recent interview with Crime Fighters denied killing Ataga, contrary to her earlier position that she killed him while he tried to force himself on her.
According to her, she had nothing to do with the murder but only found Ataga’s corpse after returning to the service apartment where both of them had lodged at Lekki, Lagos State.
Reacting to the new position by Ojukwu, a senior police officer stated that a lie detector could be deployed to test if her latest claim was true or not.
The officer said:
“It appears that her lawyers or relatives are teaching her; but this is different from our investigation. This is a fake angle and she cannot dismiss convincing evidence that is already available and recorded, which she herself demonstrated.
“So, this means she is a two-faced person; she tells lies and when the investigation gets to a top level, they will use a lie detector to know whether she is telling the truth or not.”
In the recent interview, Ojukwu said;
“Before I was leaving, he stood up to lock the door, but when I got in, I was knocking, and when there was no answer, I opened and the door was already opened, as it wasn’t locked; the duvet and pillow were on the floor.
“The couch was facing the door and the bed was stained with blood already. The floor where he was was filled with blood and then music and TV were on. The room was already disarranged like someone broke in, then I saw him on the floor.
“I didn’t know what to do, so I took my things with his things and left. I was afraid; I didn’t know if I had raised the alarm, they would have arrested me for doing it because I and him were just the only people in the room.
“I just left; I was packing my things to leave, then I noticed that my clothes were stained, so I changed to another. I took the bag that contained his ID and documents like bank statements. So, I just packed them and put them into the nylon and left.
“I just did it; it is not like I had something to do with his death. I never had anything to do with his death.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has stated that the UNILAG student is exhibiting traits of an active criminal with her new confession.
He recalled how she was recorded the night she was arrested and at the state CIID.
“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, investigation will prove that.”
