The brother of the late Usifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV CEO, Dr. Isi Ataga has said his brother was bound, gagged, and tortured before he was murdered.
The body of the deceased was found in a hotel room where he had spent the night with a 300 Level student of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu, who confessed to having killed him.
In a statement titled, ‘Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’ Isi expressed the doubt that the murder was carried out by a single person owing to the manner it was done.
Isi said, “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.”
