Lagos Police Arrest Additional Suspects Involved in Murder of SuperTV Boss
Nab 1,320 suspects, recover 110 arms
The Lagos State Police Command yesterday announced the arrest of additional suspects in connection to the murder of SuperTV boss,
Mr. Usifo Ataga.
The state police command has also disclosed that it has established a case of conspiracy in Ataga’s death involving the prime suspect, 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu and some other persons.
It also said it arrested 1,320 suspects and recovered 110 arms between May 1 and July 13.
The state Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, disclosed these during a press briefing and parade of over a thousand suspects at the command headquarters in Ikeja.
Although he didn’t give details on the number of suspects arrested and their connection to the murder, Odumosu said the case was progressing, adding that the police would never compromise on it.
Odumosu said: “We have established a case of conspiracy in the murder and we have arrested more suspects.”
Given the public interest the case has garnered, the CP admonished the public that the prime suspect has her rights guaranteed by the constitution, dismissing insinuations that the police were attempting to give her a soft landing.
Odumosu also disclosed that the police in Lagos State arrested 1,320 suspects and recovered 110 arms between May 1 and July 13.
The CP said that 125 pieces of ammunition of various calibres and eight stolen vehicles were also recovered.
