On Wednesday, July 14, when presenting criminal suspects detained by the command, Odumosu refuted charges that the command is aiming to bury the case. As he puts it;
“Chidinma initially was the only suspect that we arrested, but now, we have arrested additional suspects. So, members of the public should know that investigation into Chidinma’s case is progressing.
The fundamental human rights of the suspects still exist under the constitution. The insinuation that the police want to sweep the case under the carpet, that will never happen.
No matter the propaganda, we will never wither and we are not covering anybody as we have been able to establish conspiracy in the case.”
Ghgossip earlier reported that the House of Representatives has requested the police to ban Chidinma Ijukwu, the key suspect in the murder of Super TV CEO Mr. Usifo Ataga, from giving additional media interviews.
Chidinma, a University of Lagos 300-level Mass Communication student, was arrested on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, as the suspected murder of Super TV CEO, Mr. Usifo Ataga, at a service apartment in Lagos’ Lekki neighborhood.
The House raised concern today at plenary that, since Chidinma’s arrest, she has been paraded around, giving interviews to various news platforms, causing the internet and news media to be curious with the discussion and analysis situation.
The House sent a warning to the police to make sure that future violations of human rights, such as allowing media access to jailed people, do not jeopardize the case in court.
According to Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, the member representing Oluyole federal constituency in Oyo State, the law of Nigeria does not permit social media trials, and topics that are sub judice (meaning not yet determined by the court) are not to be debated by the media.
