Dr. Isi Ataga says his brother, Super TV CEO, Usifo Ataga, was bound, gagged, and tortured before he was murdered.
He said this in a statement titled, ‘Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’ noting that it was unlikely that the murder was carried out by a single person.
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 later confessed to killing him.
The brother of the deceased 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.”
Meanwhile, Ojukwu, was arrested and paraded by the Lagos State Police Command last week.
She claimed she carried out the murder alone, saying she stabbed Ataga to death at the hotel in Lekki, Lagos after he tried to have sex with her against her wish.
