Chidinma Ojukwu and Adedapo Quadri, the two main suspects in the murder of Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, were arraigned before a Lagos High Court sitting in Tafawa Balewa Square.
On Tuesday, there was some little drama in court as one of the defendants in the trial for the suspected murder of Usifo Ataga pled guilty.
The Lagos State government had filed an eight-count complaint against the two defendants, including conspiracy, murder, stabbing, forgery, forging bank documents, and stealing.
Chioma Egbuchu, the first defendant’s sister, is charged with taking the late Ataga’s iPhone 7 on the 9th count.
There was some drama, however, when the second defendant, Adedapo Quadri, pleaded guilty to the first count accusation.
According to her, the event occurred at 19, Adewale Oshin Street in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
Finally, Justice Adesanya remanded the confident-looking Chidinma and Adedapo Quadri to jail custody, permitted the third defendant to remain on bail, and delayed the trial until November 9 and 11.
