A 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos, Chidinma, has been arrested and paraded for allegedly killing the Chief Executive Officer, Super TV, Usifo Ataga, in Lekki.
Speaking with journalists today, the 300-level student of Mass Communication, said she had been in a romantic relationship with Ataga for about four months.
According to her, they were “having fun” when an argument broke out and she stabbed him twice. She also disclosed that she withdrew N380,000 from his account using his ATM card.
Last week, we reported how Mr Ataga was reportedly stabbed to death a few days to his 50th birthday.
Usifo was reported missing by his family and friends after he didn’t return to his residence in Banana Island, The Street Journal had reported.
It was gathered that he was found dead with multiple stab wounds at an apartment in Lekki Phase 1 on Friday morning, June 18, 2021. It was said that several withdrawals had been made from his account, ostensibly, by his killer.
Usifo, who is married to a manager in NNPC, had met the said mistress about a fortnight ago and they started seeing each other. He had rented an Airbnb in Lekki, where they would meet clandestinely, away from prying eyes and ears.
According to reports, following his disappearance, the police tracked down the owner of the Airbnb, who received payment from the side chic’s bank account into which Ataga had previously made a transfer for the payment to.
After the apartment was broken into, Usifo was found dead with multiple stabs on his neck, chest and thigh. The robbers withdrew N5million from his account before killing him.
It’s believed that the mistress carried out the murder as security guards at the rentals confirmed that no third party had visited the lovers besides a dispatch rider, who is suspected to have brought the lethal drug to the side-piece.
