A Lagos High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square, on Tuesday, resumed the trial of Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super Tv, Usifo Ataga.

Ojukwu, an undergraduate of the University of Lagos, Akoka, was arraigned alongside Adedapo Quadri and Chioma Egbuchu on October, 12, 2021, on nine counts over the alleged murder of Ataga.

Ojukwu in a video played by Justice Yetunde Adesanya, made a U-turn on her previous ‘confession’ of stabbing Ataga in the neck, ribs and stomach.

She also denied knowing who killed Ataga as she had gone out on the day of the incident.
