Chidinma Ojukwu, the 21 year old 300-level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, UNILAG who allegedly killed the CEO of Super TV, Usifo Ataga had not entered the campus since the beginning of the present semester, one of her lecturers has said.
Dr. Bunmi Ajibade, a Senior Lecturer at Mass Communications Department of the University of Lagos, said that indeed, that the last time she entered class was before the COVID-19 lockdown last year.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Chidinma Ojukwu was paraded by the police and confessed to stabbing Ataga in a scuffle while both of them were secreted in a Lekki, Lagos location.
A total of N5 million was reportedly withdrawn from the victim’s account after he was murdered.
In a message he circulated on WhatsApp after news of the incident went viral, Ajibade said Chindima Ojukwu’s parents apparently did not monitor her despite the fact that she lived with them.
UNILAG Student Had Been Missing From School
“We parents should pray for and monitor our children. There is so much evil going on in tertiary institutions now. Drugs, alcohol and s*x have become the order of the day among adolescents.”
“As Coordinator of Part Time programme, l have made some investigations about the lady. The last time she came to school was before Covid-19 lockdown. She has never written 300 Level exam with her cohorts.
Noting that the student was a traunt, he said: “She has never stepped her feet on the soil of UNILAG since the commencement of this semester early last month. Yet, she was arrested in her father’s house.
“Were the parents sensitive enough to discover her truancy in school? Did they monitor her progress in school if they suspected something is amiss? How come they were apparently neglected that this calamity came upon them suddenly? Many questions are begging for answers.”
Chidinma Ojukwu is being held without bail by the police in Lagos for the murder of the Super TV CEO, Usifo Ataga.
