The Lagos State Police Command has arrested more suspects in connection with the killing of Super TV boss, Usifo Ataga.
The Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu gave the update, adding that they have established a conspiracy theory into circumstances surrounding the killing of the socialite.
He made the disclosure during a briefing and parade of over 1,000 suspects at the Command headquarters in Ikeja.
The Police said Utaga was said to have been drugged before he was killed.
Odumosu also denied the widespread insinuation that the police were trying to create a soft landing for the prime suspect.
“We have established a case of conspiracy in the murder and we have arrested more suspects,” Odumosu said.
The CP added that 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu however remains the prime suspect in the alleged murder.
CEO of Super TV Michael Usifo Ataga aged 50 was reported missing for days until his dead body was found in the Lekki Phase 1 flat on June 15. It was reported that he was murdered by Miss Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300 level student of the University of Lagos last week.
During the interrogation, the lover of Michael Usifo disclosed that she killed her lover because he wanted to force himself on her. She later asked for forgiveness saying she did not want to die.
However, Chidima has made a U-turn on her previous comments and has said that she knows nothing about Ataga’s death.
