The family of the late Michael Usifo Ataga, who was allegedly stabbed to death by Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300 level female student of the University of Lagos, has revealed more details regarding the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV.
The family after carrying out an autopsy on his corpse, believes that there are more persons involved in the murder.
The family claimed that Usifo was stabbed multiple times, adding that his hands were bound tightly and that 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.
The elder brother of the deceased, Dr. Isi Ataga, who made this known in a statement titled: Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’ 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.
Meanwhile, the family had on Saturday night urged the police to go beyond the arrest of the suspect, Chidinma Ojukwu, to get to the bottom of the case.
