A lecturer in the department, has said, “I know her (Chidinma) because of her beauty and innocent look. She is an introvert to the core.
Left for her striking beauty, she is not likely to be noticed by anyone, because she doesn’t talk in class.”
Another lecturer also confirmed that Chidinma is a 300-level student in the department.
“Yes, in our group chats, where there are several professors, it was confirmed that she is a 300-level part time student of Mass Communication, UNILAG,” the lecturer said.
One of the classmates, who spoke on condition of anonymity said, “Yes, she (Chidinma) is a 300-level part time student of Mass Communication. I know her, but we are not on talking terms; she doesn’t interact with many people. She is a recluse.
“She is a cool girl, who comes for lectures and leave afterwards; she has few friends, who she talks to. I don’t really know much about her.”
Another student said he had not seen her in the current semester, adding that their lectures could not hold on Thursday as the lecturers did not turn up.
“I have not seen her this semester since we resumed on May 10. We were supposed to have lectures today, but the lecturers did not come. Likewise, her issue has been a major topic on our WhatsApp platform; it was a chaotic debate as members took sides,” he said
The students said they usually receive lectures between 5pm and 8.30pm weekdays.
Dr. Bunmi Ajibade, a Senior Lecturer at Mass Communications Department of the University of Lagos, on Thursday also said he has made some investigations about Chidinma Ojukwu, a murder suspect.
Ojukwu is currently being detained at the headquarters of the Lagos State Police Command in Ikeja over the murder of Usifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, whose lifeless body was found in a flat in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, with multiple wounds, on June 16.
The suspect was said to have fled the scene after committing the crime.
In a message he circulated on WhatsApp after news of the incident went viral, Ajibade said Ojukwu’s parents ought to have monitored her.
“We parents should pray for and monitor our children. There is so much evil going on in tertiary institutions now. Drugs, alcohol, and s*x have become the order of the day among adolescents.”
“As Coordinator of Part-Time programme, l have made some investigations about the lady. The last time she came to school was before Covid-19 lockdown. She has never written 300 Level exam with her cohorts.
“She has never stepped her feet on the soil of UNILAG since the commencement of this semester early last month. Yet, she was arrested in her father’s house.
“Were the parents sensitive enough to discover her truancy in school? Did they monitor her progress in school if they suspected something is amiss? How come they were apparently neglected that this calamity came upon them suddenly? Many questions are begging for answers.”
