The high-profile case of the slain Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga took another dimension on Tuesday when the key suspects, 22-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu and Adedapo Quadri, appeared before a Lagos High Court sitting at Tafawa Balewa Square.
Channels Television reported that the both Ojukwu and Quadri pleaded not guilty before Justice Yetunde Adesanya to all the eight counts bordering on the offences of murder, forgery and stealing.
The two suspects were arraigned alongside Chidinma’s sister, Egbuchu Chioma from whom the late Ataga’s iPhone 7, was said to have been recovered.
A sober-looking Chioma was said to have also pleaded not guilty to the ninth count of being in possession of stolen property.
They are being prosecuted by the Lagos State Department of Public Prosecution, Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi.
