Though, its initial assertion on the possibility that the prime suspect, Chidinmma Ojukwu, who has been in police custody did not carry out the dastardly act alone, has been confirmed, following the latest disclosure by the 300 level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, that she had nothing to do with the murder.
Her denial which contradicts her earlier admittance to the murder of the father of two was revealed in a video that went viral recently.
Chidinmma in the latest interview which Vanguard gathered was conducted after she was paraded before newsmen, stated that she had gone to get food and some drugs on that fateful day, only to meet Usifo in the pool of his blood, dead, on arrival.
Earlier in her interaction with journalists, while being paraded by the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, CP Hakeem Odumosu, at the command headquarters, Ikeja, the undergraduate said she committed the crime under the influence of roofies ( the street name for Rohypnol). She revealed that late Usifo took three wraps while she took one, adding that she reached out for a knife which she used to stab him, in her bid to free herself from his grip, during the ensuing altercation over forceful sex.
