The trial of Chidinma Ojukwu, the suspect who was arrested in connection to the murder of late Super TV boss, Usifo Ataga, is still ongoing.

According to reports, a businessman by the name of Ifeoluwa Oluwo has narrated to the High Court sitting in Igbosere, Lagos State, how the suspect sold the late Ataga’s laptop computer to him.

Oluwo, who appeared before the court on Thursday, November 25, revealed that he bought the laptop from Chidinma for the sum of N495,000 on the 18th of June, exactly two days after the victim’s body was discovered at a service apartment in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

In his testimony, the witness claimed to be a businessman who traded in mobile phones, computer systems, and accessories in the popular Computer Village area in Ikeja.

He said a business relationship with the suspect was struck when she bought an item from him in April this year.

The witness revealed that he bought the laptop from the suspect for N495,000 because the device had a market value of $1,000 to $1,200 at the time.

According to him, the suspect intended to sell the laptop for N600,000.

He disclosed that when Chidinma was asked how she came about the laptop, she claimed to have received it as a gift from her boyfriend, adding that she wanted to sell it off to pay some urgent bills. When she was asked to produce a receipt, the suspect claimed not to have collected it from her boyfriend.

Oluwo said he proceeded to purchase giving her a form to fill.

In his defense, the witness told the court that there was no way he could have known that the item was stolen, let alone connected to a murder case.

This testimony from Ifeoluwa Oluwo will serve as another damaging piece of evidence against the suspect, Chidinma Ojukwu.

Recall that Chidinma had stunned reporters in July when she made a sudden U-turn to deny killing the Super TV boss, after initially confessing to the heinous crime.

Recall that Chidinma had on the 13th of June, 2021, booked a short-let apartment in Lekki, Lagos, where she and her lover, Usifo Ataga stayed to catch some fun.

In a bizarre twist of events, however, the media mogul’s body was found lifeless in the apartment 3 days later, with several stab wounds on his body.

The 21-year-old could receive a death sentence if found guilty on the charge of first-degree murder.

The trial was adjourned to Monday, November 29, 2021.
