21-Year-Old Varsity Student Arrested For Alleged Murder of SuperTV CEO
A 21-year-old Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, identified as Chidinma, has been arrested for allegedly killing the Chief Executive Officer, Super TV, Usifo Ataga, in Lekki.
Speaking with journalists today, the 300-level student said she had been in a romantic relationship with Ataga for about four months and they were “having fun” when an argument broke out and she stabbed him twice. She also disclosed that she withdrew some money from his account using his ATM card.
Recall that Usifo was reported missing by his family after he failed to show up at his residence in Banana Island.
It was gathered that he was found dead with multiple stab wounds at an apartment in Lekki Phase 1 on Friday morning, June 18, 2021, a few days to his 50th birthday and several withdrawals had been made from his account by his suspected killer.
Usifo, who is married to a manager in NNPC, had met the said mistress about a fortnight ago and they started seeing each other. He had rented an Airbnb in Lekki, where they would meet clandestinely, away from prying eyes and ears.
According to reports, following his disappearance, the police tracked down the owner of the Airbnb, who received payment from the side chic’s bank account into which Ataga had previously made a transfer for the payment to.
It’s believed that the mistress carried out the murder as security guards at the rentals confirmed that no third party had visited the apartment.
