On Monday, February 14, the hearing in the murder case of Super TV chairman Usifo Ataga resumed, with a witness in the case, Raman Obiorah Saliu, telling the court that seven stab wounds were discovered on the neck of the late Usifo, who co-founded the Super Network Limited with him.
Saliu said Ataga was slain like a chicken because he was tied up like a ram while testifying in court.
Apart from the seven stab wounds on Ataga’s neck, Saliu stated there were two on his ribs and one on his stomach, according to the Deputy Director of Public Prosecution, Mrs A. O. Oluwafemi.
Mr Saliu said he had no idea who submitted the CCTV film to the police during cross questioning by Chidinma’s lawyer, Mr Onwuka Egwu, and that the CCTV footage trended prior to Chidinma’s detention.
Chidinma, a University of Lagos (Unilag) 300-level mass communication student, is on trial for Ataga’s murder alongside her sister, Chioma Egbuchu, and one Adedapo Quadri.
Chidinma, who used to be Ataga’s side chic, was apprehended after he was discovered dead in their Lagos residence in June 2021.
