The Lagos state police command has arrested the father of Chidinma Ojukwu, the 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), who allegedly murdered CEO of Super TV, Usifo Ataga
PUNCH quoted an official of the command as saying Chidinma was arrested alongside her father at their Yaba home on Wednesday.
According to the source, the arrest of the suspect’s father followed his initial attempt to resist Chidinma’s arrest by becoming violent with the police operatives
The source disclosed that he was being detained at the state criminal investigation and intelligence department in Panti, Yaba.
The source added that the student’s father was shocked by her daughter’s confession to the crime on Thursday, noting that prior to that, he never believed in the allegations against her.
“She (Chidinma) stays with her dad. Her dad and mom don’t live together. Her father was arrested on Wednesday, because he resisted his daughter’s arrest. He never believed that his daughter committed any crime until Thursday. He is at Panti as we speak, but he was not paraded today (Thursday),” the source was quoted as saying.
