According to a preliminary police report on the alleged murder of Uwaifo Osifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu, a 21-year-old UNILAG student who is the prime suspect in the case, booked the short-let apartment in Lekki where the incident occurred under the alias Jewel.
After Ataga’s body was discovered in the room on Wednesday, June 16, several calls to a phone number with which 21-year-old Ojukwu booked didn’t go through, according to the report.
Mrs Nkechi Mogbo, the facility’s operator, is said to have reported the incident to the police.
An excerpt of the report reads:
“Mogbo reported that around 3 pm of June 16, 2021, she received a call from her security guard on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I where she has one flat being used as a short let apartment.
She further stated that the security man informed her that one Jewel with a foreign phone number who rented the apartment invited one Usifo Ataga to the apartment yesterday (June 15) and that about 1 pm of June 16 when the cleaner wanted to clean the room, he discovered that the door had been broken.
When she (the cleaner) peeped into the room, she discovered that the said Ataga was lying in a pool of blood. All calls put across to the said Jewel to come back to the apartment proved abortive.”
Chidinma was apprehended on June 23 at her Yaba home and paraded in front of the media on June 24, confessing to stabbing the TV boss multiple times. She claimed she met Ataga at a wild party a few months ago and that they have been seeing each other ever since.
