The family of the late Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga has revealed how the deceased died.
Super TV CEO, Michael Usifo Ataga, was allegedly stabbed to death by a 300 level female student of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu. The police in Lagos later arrested Chidinma for killing Ataga after she was tracked to her home.
Chidinma while confessing to the crime claimed that she stabbed the deceased after he tried to forcefully have sex with her.
She further admitted to withdrawing some amount of money from the deceased’s account with claims she wanted to use it to pay for her tuition.
The family in a statement claimed that Usifo was stabbed multiple times.
Ataga’s family added that his hands were bound tightly and the marks were still all over his wrists.
They also insisted that no one in the entire building heard his screams because he was gagged and tortured.
In a statement titled: ‘Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’, by Dr. Isi Ataga, the elder brother to the deceased, the family described Usifo’s death as horrific.
“Usifo died a horrific death. He wasn’t stabbed two or even five times; he was stabbed multiple times. His hands were bound tightly and the marks were still all over his wrists, accompanied by evidence of torture and assault even as his corpse lay in the morgue.
“And no one in the entire building heard his screams because he was gagged. Let that sink in, he was bound, gagged, and tortured!
“The now-viral video of the room with the deceased lying on the floor shows a room with blood-stained walls and floor, evidence of a ferocious struggle. One person could never have carried these out,” Isi said in the statement.
