The 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos, Chidinma, who was accused of killing the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, has narrated how she stabbed the deceased in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

Chidinma disclosed this at the headquarters of the Lagos State Police Command on Thursday after she was paraded as a suspect by the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu.

The Commissioner of Police disclosed that the suspect was apprehended at her parent’s residence in the Yaba area of the state on Wednesday night.

The 300-level student of Mass Communication disclosed that she had been in a relationship with Ataga for about four months before the ugly incident.

Chidinma said she and Ataga were “having fun” when an argument broke out and she stabbed him twice.

She said, “We were in the lodge smoking. He was trying to make advances on me. I was tired and he became violent on it. I let him have his way. Towards afternoon, he ordered roofies. We took it together and ate food. He became high. I was still not happy with the first one (sex) that we had, so, I was staying on my own, smoking and drinking. He, too, was on his own.”

“He came to me and I was like I am not happy with what he did. I was like, ‘You don’t help me, you don’t assist me with anything, you are just playing with me around’. He was like, ‘Take my ATM and withdraw what you want.”

“He later became violent trying to get to me and I was resisting and defending myself. At some point, he hit my head on the wall and I also retaliated.”

“At some point, he was chasing me around the kitchen cabinet. I took a knife and stabbed his neck. I approached the door and he followed me. I stabbed him twice on the neck side. I threw the knife to the bed and he was going for it but I also went for it. He dragged the knife with me and it broke and he fell on the floor.”

Chidinma noted that after stabbing the late CEO, she withdrew N380,000 from his account using his ATM card.

While the owner of the rented apartment where the tragic incident took place had been arrested, Odumosu also said Ataga’s account had been blocked to prevent further withdrawals from it by those taking advantage of his untimely death to deplete the account.
