Chidinma Ojukwu, alleged killer of Super TV CEO, Michael Usifo Ataga has made a u-turn and has denied killing him, few weeks after claiming responsibility for his death.

In a recent interview with Crime Fighters, the 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), claimes she admitted to killing Ataga at the time because of pressure and the fact that nobody believed her.

Ataga was found dead days after checking into an apartment with the suspect in Lekki, Lagos.

Ojukwu had last month confessed to stabbing Ataga “twice on the neck side” while she was being paraded by the Lagos state police command.

She had alleged that the businessman had forcefully had sex with her the first time but a dispute ensued after he attempted it again.

Speaking in the interview, Ojukwu had claimed that she had met the deceased in a pool of his own blood when she returned from where she had gone to get food and drugs for the pair.

“I didn’t injure anybody. I don’t know who must have come into the apartment and did that, I don’t know who that person is. I don’t know what happened. I did not kill him,” she said.

“I didn’t involve anybody. I don’t know who must have come into the apartment. Definitely, somebody did that but I don’t know who that person is. I don’t know what happened when I left the room to buy food. Because of what I did after by not alerting the police and also withdrawing money from his account, I feel guilty for what happened but I did not kill him,” she said.

“I believe someone knew where we were and waited till I left before they entered. Due to pressure and insistence of the security operatives that nobody entered the room apart from the two, I resolved that since no one believed me, let me just take the blame.”

She also stated that the deceased had anger issues, adding that he told her that he had issues with his wife as he was not into the idea of a happy marriage and was in the union only because of his children.

Ojukwu also noted that nobody is influencing her claim as believed in some quarters, explaining that she has not communicated with anyone from her family since her arrest.

“No one is influencing my statements. I have not spoken to anyone since my arrest, not even my relation or anybody close to me,” she added.

Speaking on her decision to make withdrawals from Ataga’s account with his card after his death, she said it was because the deceased had promised her the amount before the unfortunate incident.

“I just withdrew the money because he had already promised me, it’s not like I had anything to do with his death. I don’t have anything to do with his death,” she added.

Smiling, the suspect dismissed rumours of she having 10 million in her account, stating that she had about five hundred thousand naira only.

She also claimed that the fear of being arrested by the police had an effect on her decision not to report the matter before she left the apartment for her house.
