Chioma, sister to Chidinma Ojukwu, who allegedly stabbed Chief Executive Officer of SUPER TV, Usifo Ataga, to death in a service apartment in Lekki area of Lagos has revealed that the 21-year-old prime suspect disowned her family due to some misunderstanding she had with her widowed mother.
It was gathered that her first step was to change her original name: Chidinma Blessing Echefu, to Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu.
Chioma told detectives that they lost their father when Chidinma was barely two years old. Her mother was said to have remarried but that her children were still with her.
Along the line, Chidinma’s lifestyle reportedly changed negatively, with her mother always scolding her. She was also alleged to have been discovered to be smoking when she was barely 11 years , an action that provoked her mother to chastise her.
According to Vanguard, the misunderstanding between mother and child started at this point. In a move to bring her to order, Chidinma was taken to her uncle’s place in the Mushin area, where she was reportedly thrown out again because of her smoking attitude.
She reportedly became rebellious and stayed away from her family. It was at this point that she met Ojukwu, who took her into his Yaba abode, from where she was picked last week Wednesday.
Her mother who presently resides in Mowe area of Ogun State, was heard telling some of her relatives that she has not set her eyes on Chidinma for 10 years.
Childinma’s sister, Chioma, corroborated this claim when she visited the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.
She stated categorically that Ojukwu was not related to her family, disclosing that they were from Imo State and not Abia State as earlier disclosed by Chidinma.
