As more facts continue to unravel over the murder of Usifo Ataga, the main suspect, Chidinma Ojukwu has revealed she sees the late CEO of Super TV in her dreams.
The 21-year-old lady revealed she wished she would wake up to discover that the whole drama was only a dream, Vanguard reports.
She said: “I have never had peace since the day I was arrested. Never in my wildest imagination did I envisage I would kill a human being. I see his face in my dream every night. At times I would be scared to sleep.
“I have been begging God for forgiveness. This is not what I wanted for myself. I don’t know what fate holds for me.
“I am also begging his family to forgive me, especially his children. Ah! God, what have I done?” she exclaimed, burying her face in her palms.
While maintaining that she carried out the killing alone, Chidinma told detectives at the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba that she was able to overpower the deceased because he was weak.
She revealed that late Usifo became weak after taking three wraps of Rohypnol while she took one wrap. She stated that she strangled Usifo before stabbing him.
Her claim has confirmed the Ataga family’s insinuation that Usifo’s neck was discovered to have been broken during an inspection of his body in the morgue.
Internet fraudster indicted
Meanwhile, detectives are on the manhunt for a suspected drug addict and internet fraudster (names withheld), who Chidinma claimed to have assisted her to falsify the deceased’s documents after she escaped from the service apartment in Lekki Phase 1, abandoning Usifo’s lifeless body.
She disclosed that the deceased earlier gave her his Automated Teller Machine, ATM, card to withdraw some money to buy some clothes but that she did not withdraw much.
Thereafter, she said she contacted the internet fraudster to help her withdraw more money.
As of yesterday, the internet fraudster, who got wind of Chidinma’s arrest, had bolted from his abode. But the Police assured them they would get him to answer questions on what he knew about Usifo’s death.
