In the footage that was shown on Tuesday, Ojukwu was questioned about her denial of knowing the dead. She stated, she did not deny knowing him but that she did not kill him. She said, “I don’t know who entered the room after I left, Ojukwu added. He was bleeding when I returned. I did not kill him, and I am unsure of who killed him, so I had to leave because I was scared.”

She said that she was too terrified to call for help when she discovered him in a pool of blood, and she also took the deceased’s two iPhones and Macbook, which were among her belongings before she left. Ms. Ojukwu said that she quickly packed up her belongings after spotting Mr. Ataga on the ground. “I just packed up my things and went because I was afraid, I don’t know who entered,” she stated.

In a different confessional video that was shown to the judge, the video of Mr. Ataga’s dead body was first played at the last hearing, followed by the defendant’s confession, she claimed in the tape that she killed him on her own.

Ataga was murdered in an apartment in 19, Adewale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. Chidinmma acknowledged guilt and confessed to stabbing and strangling Usifo, whom she said she had met through a friend, four months earlier. She explained that after the deceased sought to have sex with her for the second time under threat, she acted in self-defense.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Mr. Bamidele said, “She started writing by herself, but because her handwriting wasn’t acceptable I informed her that she should make sure that her writing is readable or write in capital letters.” At that time, she suggested that I write to her and confessed to killing the victim.

She further disclosed that she had murdered Michael Usifo Ataga and left with a knife, several phones, and a Macbook laptop. Ms. Ojukwu admitted to selling the MacBook. Additionally, he claimed that she admitted that a “DG” helped her obtain an Access Bank ATM, an ID card, a driver’s license, and other documents, but that she didn’t know his full name and had only spoken to him on the phone.
