Fresh details have emerged revealing how a 21 year old student of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, Chidinma Ojukwu killed Mr. Micheal Usifo Ataga.
It was earlier reported that Chidinma, a 300 level student of Mass Communication gruesomely murdered Ataga in an AirBnB short-let apartment in Lekki Phase one 2 weeks ago. She was arrested by police detectives at her parents’ house last Wednesday.
The murder has generated so much controversy with many wondering how petite Chidinma could overpower the 50 year old Ataga. Speculation that she could not have carried out the murder alone went viral on social media.
However, it’s been discovered that the deceased was drugged before being strangled and stabbed.
In her confession to detectives of the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba, Chidinma disclosed that she carried out the act alone stating that she was able to overpower him because he was weak.
She disclosed that the late Usifo became ‘weak’ after taking three wraps of Rohypnol while she took one wrap.
She admitted strangling the Super TV CEO before stabbing him. She also revealed that she is being haunted by the deceased as she cannot sleep since the dastard act was committed.
“I have never had peace since the day I was arrested. Never in my wildest imagination did I envisage I would kill a human being. I see his face in my dream every night. At times I would be scared to sleep.”
“I have been begging God for forgiveness. This is not what I wanted for myself. I don’t know what fate holds for me.”, she said.
