Lagos Commissioner of Police, Mr Hakeem Odumosu has announced the arrest of more suspects in connection with the murder of Mr Usifo Ataga, the late Super TV boss at a short service apartment in the Lekki Area of Lagos last June.
Odumosu made the revelations on Wednesday while parading the suspects at the command headquarters in Ikeja, noting that a case of conspiracy has been established.
The Commissioner who assured that the police would never compromise on the murder case, did not give details on the number of suspects arrested and their connection to the murder.
He noted that 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu who had confessed to killing Ataga, before her sudden u-turn remains a suspect with her rights guaranteed by the constitution.
Odumosu also dismissed insinuations that the police were attempting to give her a soft landing following a recent viral video, where se was seen walking back her initial confession to the murder.
Odumosu said: “We have established a case of conspiracy in the murder and we have arrested more suspects.”
In the recent interview with crime fighters case file, Chidinma had said she admitted to killing Ataga at the time because of pressure and the fact that nobody believed her.
“I don’t know what happened when I left the room to buy food. Because of what I did after by not alerting the police and also withdrawing money from his account, I feel guilty for what happened but I did not kill him,” Chidinma had claimed.
