The Lagos State Police Command says it would no longer speak to journalists on Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of Super TV CEO, Michael Ataga.
Muyiwa Adejobi, the command’s spokesperson, told Blaze Newz on Monday that a “collective decision” had been taken against granting media interviews on the suspect’s case.
Our correspondent had sought comment of the police on a viral video interview in which Chidinma, who had previously confessed that she killed Ataga, made a u-turn on her earlier confession.
“We don’t talk about Chidinma’s matter for now and the command is not reacting to whatever it is. We don’t talk about it again,” said Adejobi.
When she was paraded by the command in June, 21-year-old Ojukwu had confessed that she killed Ataga by stabbing him multiple times at a short-let apartment they rented in Lagos.
Asked to comment on the trending video, Adejobi said: “I’m not aware of any video let alone confirming it. If you send it, it is immaterial to me. It doesn’t change our decision, the command’s decision is that we are not reacting on the matter for now, when we are still investigating.
“When we decide to speak on it, we are going to speak on it. If you send me ten thousand copies of that video it is not going to change the decision of the command.
“The reason was collectively taken by the command and it is for our own good”.
Meanwhile, in the interview, Chidinma alienated herself from Ataga’s death and insinuated that he was killed by unknown persons.
