Chidinma Ojukwu emerges as “Miss Cell 2022”


Miss Chidinma Ojukwu, the alleged killer of Super Tv boss, Michael, Ataga, has been crowned “Miss Cell, 2022” at the Kirikiri correctional facility.

Chidinma who is a 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos, was said to have allegedly jabbed her victim to death in Lekki, Lagos in 2021.

She has now emerged Miss Cell 2022 in a beauty ceremony organized at the correctional centre to mark the 2022 International Women’s Day.

Francis Enobore, the National Spokesperson, Nigeria Correctional Service, affirmed that Chidinma took part in in the assignment like every other inmate.

She said, “Some cell blocks presented drama while some organized beauty pageantry, so there were different events in each block and so many winners emerged.

“Chidinma is also an inmate so we cannot stop her from participating just because of her case. Her own block did beauty pageantry.

“The inmates had approached the officer in charge that they wanted to have a program to commemorate the International Women’s Day and their request was approved”.
