[Updated] Super TV CEO: Court Remands Chidinma Ojukwu For 30 Days

Chidinma Ojukwu, the prime suspect in the murder of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, has been ordered to be remanded in police custody for another 30 days.

The order was given by Justice Adeola Adedayo, of Yaba Magistrates’ Court, following an application by the police.

Justice Adedayo also remanded Ojukwu’s co-defendant Adedapo Quadri on the same terms.

Police counsel Cyril Ejiofor had prayed the court to remand both first defendant Ojukwu and second defendant Quadri pending the issuance of a Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) report on the matter.

Director, Office of the Public Defender (OPD) Dr. Babajide Martins, who observed that the prosecution failed to furnish him with the remand application, did not oppose Ejiofor’s prayer “on principle.”
