Chidinma Ojukwu’s mother has finally spoken out leading to more facts on the true identity of the 300 level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, who was arrested last week Wednesday over the murder of Chief Executive Officer, Super TV, Usifo Ataga, in a Service apartment in Lekki area of Lagos State.
This followed startling revelations by family sources that the 21-year-old prime suspect in the murder saga disowned her family due to some misunderstanding she had with her widowed mother.
Her first step as gathered was to change her original name : Chidinma Blessing Echefu, to Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu.
Information at Vanguard’s disposal revealed that her earlier assertion that the change in her lifestyle was as a result of a broken home could not be true after all.
Rather, one of her siblings, identified simply as 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.
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.
