Barely 48 hours after the Police arraigned Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of Super TV CEO Usifo Ataga in court, the deceased’s family has raised the alarm over what they described as attempted foul play.
Ataga’s family accused the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, of complicity in an alleged attempt to shield his killers from facing investigation and prosecution. According to the family, the Police has granted one of the killers’ bail.
The family of the Super TV CEO expressed concerns that one Babalola Disu, who was arraigned for preventing the Police from performing their duties, is highly suspected of having carried out the murder.
Ataga’s family revealed that Disu’s apartment was opposite Usifo’s in the short rental apartment where Chidinma reportedly killed him. Also, the family said the Police did not inform them before taking the prime suspect, Chidinma, to court.
The family added that the Police reportedly used Uber to move Chidinma to the prison from court without handcuffs. They further accused the Police of lying about the man claiming to be Chidinma’s father, adding that he is her sugar daddy.
