In the new video, Chidinma distanced herself from her earlier narration where she detailed how she committed the offence.

She claimed in the new recording that she did not know who killed the deceased as she had left him alone to go out on the Tuesday he was murdered.

She also claimed that by the time she got back, she saw Ataga’s body on the floor, she panicked, picked her things and left because she was scared.

She said, “I don’t know who entered I just picked my things and left because I was scared.”

At the last adjourned date on October 11, 2022, when the first video recording was played, Ataga’s lifeless body was first beamed on the court screen and Chidinma who was later seen in the video narrated to police officers how she killed the deceased on her own.

In the video, she had said, “There was nobody that assisted me, I did it alone.”

Chidinma’s counsel, C.C. Ezebube had objected to the playing and the admissibility of the video. He told the court that his client was coerced to make the initial confessional video but the court overruled him and has now admitted both videos in evidence.

While being interrogated in the new video, Chidinma was asked why she initially denied knowing the deceased, she said she didn’t say so but also said that she didn’t kill him.
