Miss Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300-level Mass Communication student at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), is the prime suspect in Ataga’s murder.
In the video, Ataga was seen lying on the floor facing up with his hands spread open wearing a white singlet and boxers stained with bl00d. His head was close to the wall and there was bl00d on the floor on his right-hand side.
There were also large bl00d stains on the floor and the pillow and duvet cover.
Narrating how she k!lled Ataga during interrogation by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Olusegun Bamidele from the Intelligence and Tactical Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Panti, Yaba, Chidinma Ojukwu said she met Ataga through a friend and they started speaking to each other.
On June 13, 2021, he asked her to look for a place for them to stay, so she got the short-let apartment where they ate, drank, took drugs and where he was k!lled.
“After I got the place on Sunday, we were smoking loud, drinking, watching movies and then I went to get food. The drug we were taking got finished and I ordered another one and went downstairs to get it from the delivery guy in the morning; that was on June 14, 2021.
“Then on Tuesday, we drank and smoked loud. I added Rophynol to his drink and we had sex. I was on the bed and he was on the chair. Then later he started disturbing me for more sex. I was tired and after struggling with him, he had his way and still wanted more.
“He wanted it, he was no longer himself and I thought he was no more interested in s3x, only for him to return to the bed to ask for more s3x.I pushed him away, which resulted in him hitting his head against a stool that had a glass. He had a cut on his leg and he became weak.
“I got a knife and stabbed him in the neck, ribs and stomach so that he would not be able to harm me. I tied his hands with handkerchief.
“His blood was out and I was scared.
