A 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu, who was alleged to have murdered the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga has narrated how she carried out the act in Lekki area of Lagos State.
The 300-level student of Mass Communication told newsmen at the Lagos State Police Command that she stabbed Ataga twice on the neck, rupturing his arteries in the process.
Ojukwu, who was the only suspect paraded at the command on Thursday, confessed to having a romantic relationship with the deceased for about three to four months before the incident.
She alleged that an altercation broke out while they were having fun and, in the ensuing confusion, she stabbed him twice.
“I took a knife, stabbed him in the neck twice and dropped it on the bed. When I saw him going for the knife, I took it. That was when I managed to stab him in the stomach.
“When he dragged the knife with me, it sliced my hand before it broke. But it was still stuck in his hand before he fell on the floor. While he was lying there, I just changed and left,” she said.
