SUPER TV CEO: Police react to Chidinma’s latest claim, may deploy lie detector
Lagos State Police Command has reacted to the latest claim made by 21-year-old Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu, the alleged killer of the Chief Executive Officer of SUPER TV, Usifo Ataga, that she’s not responsible for his death.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the 300-level student of Mass Communication, University of Lagos, during an interview conducted by Crime Fighters claimed that she found Ataga’s corpse after returning to the service apartment from where she had gone to get food.
“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.”
According to PUNCH, a senior police officer said a lie detector could be deployed to test if Chidinma’s latest claim was true or not.
The officer said, “It appears that her lawyers or relatives are teaching her; but this is different from our investigation. This is a fake angle and she cannot dismiss convincing evidence that is already available and recorded, which she herself demonstrated.
“So, this means she is a two-faced person; she tells lies and when the investigation gets to a top level, they will use a lie detector to know whether she is telling the truth or not.”
Reacting, the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, said, “That is the trait of an active criminal; she was here, we recorded her. The night she was arrested, we recorded her at the state CIID, even the lady that rented the place to her, we recorded her and we have all that. If she now has an afterthought, investigation will prove that.”
