Chidinma tried to conceal her identity even before the murder was committed. Why would anyone go that extra mile to conceal her ID just because she wants to sleep with her manfriend? Unless, you want to commit a serious crime.
The owner/manager of the service apartment said that Chidinma called to book the guest house using a USA WhatsApp number and claimed that she had just arrived in the country and was at the airport and needed a place quiet to quarantine and that her passport was held at the airport because of Covid.
After taking the apartment, she called the manager and security guard a few times and all the time, she made sure to block her number. After committing the murder, she called to extend her stay in the guest house and ask them not to disturb the room.
Days after the incident, no one could describe her because according to the Manager and all her staff, she always wore face masks. The Security guard at the premises stated that the suspect had come to the gate to receive delivery from a delivery man who later told him after the suspect had taken her delivery, that it was drugs.
Ataga died a horrific death as reported by Vanguard. He was not stabbed 2 or even 5 times; he was stabbed multiple times. His HANDS WERE BOUND tightly and the marks were still all over his wrists, accompanied with evidence of torture and assault even as his corpse lay in the morgue.
And no one in the entire building heard his screams because he was GAGGED. Let that sink in: he was bound, gagged and tortured! The now-viral video of the room with the deceased lying on the floor, shows a room with blood-stained walls and floor, evidence of a ferocious struggle. One person could never have carried these out!
3 to 4 years ago, Chidinma was arrested for blackmailing a married man and using an innocent security man’s bank account to collect the money. She must have been at most, 18 years old then, if not younger! She is clearly a pathological liar, remorseless, calm and assured, and didn’t start today.
She also admitted to ‘helping’ herself with some money from his account after killing him and that she only stole N380,000 as opposed to N5m that was transferred from his account, and when asked why she stole from him, she answered that she needed the money for her school fees.
She has his ATM, his ATM pin and his BVN , did Ataga give her the BVN too?
Usifo Ataga’s company had some substantial amount of money in an Escrow account, and the first attempt was to try and move the money. Was this done before or after Usifo Ataga had been killed? Then someone sent in instructions trying to change his Banking security details, and that flagged up the account and the account was promptly blocked.
