Police arrest more suspects in connection with SuperTV boss Ataga’s murder
The police in Lagos State have apprehend more suspects in connection with the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga.
The state commissioner of police, Hakeem Odumosu, disclosed this while parading some suspects at the command headquarters in Ikeja on Wednesday,
He did not give details of the latest arrest.
According to him, “We have established a case of conspiracy in the murder and we have arrested more suspects,” he said.
Ataga, whose wife and children reside in Abuja, was first reported missing by concerned friends and family after all efforts to reach him proved abortive.
His lifeless body was later found in a flat in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos with multiple wounds on June 16.
Chidinma, a 300-level student in UNILAG’s Department of Mass Communication, later confessed to stabbing Ataga to death while being paraded at the state police command headquarters, Ikeja, Lagos State on June 24.
But in a video that went viral on Monday, the undergraduate denied killing the Super TV CEO – a claim that is contrary to her initial confession.
The 21-year-old Chidinma also confessed to withdrawing N380,000 from the deceased’s account to pay her school fees.
The undergraduate also told newsmen in Lagos that she stabbed Super TV CEO Michael Ataga to death in self defence.
The student, who said she was arrested at her residence at Alagomeji, Yaba, said that she met Ataga about four months before the incident.
