Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300-level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Super Tv CEO, Usifo Ataga.

Recall that Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, in July said the slain Ataga was said to be drugged before he was killed.

She, alongside one Adedapo Quadri, who are the key suspects in the murder case, pleaded not guilty to eight counts bordering on offences of murder, forgery and stealing.

Chidinma’s sister, Egbuchu Chioma, from whom the late Ataga’s iPhone 7 was recovered, was also arraigned.

Chioma, however, pleaded not guilty to the 9th count of being in possession of the stolen property.
