Chidinma Ojukwu has pleaded not guilty to the murder of the Super TV Chief Executive Officer, Usifo Ataga.
Chidinma, a 300-level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, who is the prime suspect, made the plea on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old was arraigned before Justice Yetunde Adesanya of the Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square.
She was arraigned alongside one Adedapo Quadri on eight counts bordering on the offences of murder, forgery and stealing.
Chidinma’s sister, Egbuchu Chioma from whom the late Ataga’s iPhone 7, was recovered, was also arraigned.
Chioma, however, pleaded not guilty to the 9th count of being in possession of the stolen property.
