The prime suspect in the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, Chidinma Ojukwu, has been remanded in prison for 30 days.
The order was given by Magistrate Mrs. Adeola Adedayo of the Yaba Chief Magistrate Court on Monday.
The order was issued pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution.
Ojukwu, a 300-level Mass Communication student at the University of Lagos, appeared in court with two other suspects in the case.
The victim, Usifo Ataga, was found dead with multiple stabs on June 16 at a short let apartment on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I where he had lodged with his lover, Ojukwu.
Ojukwu was arrested on June 23 in her father’s house in Yaba and paraded at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja.
She confessed to stabbing Usifo with a knife under the influence of alcohol and withdrawing N380,000 from the victim’s account with his ATM card.
She, however, backtracked later in a video, absolving herself from the murder.
