Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300-level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, who is alleged to be the murderer of the Super TV Chief Executive Officer, Usifo Ataga, has pleaded not guilty to the crime.
Ojukwu and Quadri pleaded not guilty to eight counts bordering on the offences of murder, forgery and stealing.
They were arraigned before Justice Yetunde Adesanya of the Lagos State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square.
The defendants were arraigned alongside Ojukwu’s sister, Egbuchu Chioma from whom the late Ataga’s iPhone 7 was said to have been recovered.
Chioma pleaded not guilty to the ninth count.
They are being prosecuted by the Lagos State Department of Public Prosecution.
