The Lagos State Police spokesman DSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Wednesday debunked the allegation in a trending video that wife of the murdered Super TV boss, Mrs. Brenda Ataga and her alleged man friend one Mr. Izu Ojukwu have been arrested by the police.
The Police Public Relations Officer told SECURITY REPORTERS.com correspondent in a telephone message on Wednesday afternoon that the allegation is not true.
An online television had gone viral with the allegation that the late Mr. Michael Usifo Ataga’s wife, Brenda and Izu Ojukwu have been arrested by the police following disclosure by Ataga’s lawyer that certain information have linked both to the murder of the billionaire TV boss by his side chick, Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu; a 300-level student of Mass Communication at the University of Lagos.
According to the online television, Brenda and Izu were said to have used Chidinma as a bait to get Usifo entangled in an extra-marital sexual relationship which was intended to be used as evidence in court against Usifo Ataga whose wife was desperate to get a divorce in other to marry Izu.
Their marriage was said to have gone sour due to high level infidelity on the part of Brenda who was in a serious relationship with Izu; an uncle to Chidinma. The infidelity was alleged to have caused temporary separation of the couple and eventually led to the use of Chidinma to play some role at the prompting of Izu and Brenda. Unfortunately, the game plan went awry and resulted in the murder of Ataga a forth night ago in a leisure apartment some where in Lekki area of Lagos.
