Brenda Ataga, wife of the slain Chief Executive Officer (CEO), of Super TV, Usifo Ataga has described the murder of her husband as callous and wicked.
Brenda, who mourned her husband during a Service of Songs held on Thursday, July 29, at the Incubator in Victoria Island, Lagos stated that the super TV CEO didn’t deserve to die in cold blood.
Recall that the remains of Ataga was found in a rented service apartment in Lekki area of Lagos in June.
A 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos, (UNILAG) Ms. Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu had been paraded by the Lagos State Police Command as Ataga’s alleged killer. During her confession, Chidinma revealed that she stabbed Ataga twice in the neck.
However, in another interview, Chidinma denied killing Ataga, making a u-turn from her earlier confession.
The 21-year-old suspect during the interview claimed that she went out to get food and drugs for the duo, saying that she met the deceased in a pool of his own blood when she returned to the service apartment.
Meanwhile, police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of the Super TV CEO.
During the service of song, Brenda described the demise of her husband as “heartbreaking”.
In her words, “Finding out of your demise was the worst news imaginable. My mind had raced through all the possibilities of where you were and what could have happened but death, death wasn’t an option.
“The girls and I were looking forward to seeing you, to celebrate your milestone. I had imagined how surprised you would be when you walked in to see a place set up for you. I had imagined the infectious smile.
“Now I’m yet to comprehend the stark reality that your life was cut short in your prime, at a renaissance of all you had toiled for. I’m lost for words.”
Also, the mother of the deceased Sylvia Ataga, in her heartfelt tribute said her son didn’t deserve to be murdered. According to her, Ataga is a very generous and caring person.
In her words, “God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds to him anytime I remember. He was generous to a fault. It took death for me to know how loved he was.
“He has been robbed of the joy of seeing a project he spent seven years working on.
“He has been denied the joy of seeing his children grow up, go to the university, get married and make him a grandfather. These are the wishes of every parent. His love for his children cannot be quantified. No way!
“He would either hop on the next plane or send me funds to go and see the doctor. And monitor me for days. My pain is that I could not monitor him in his last days.”
Also, the funeral service of the deceased will hold today, Friday, July 30, 2021 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Victoria Island, Lagos. His remains will also be interred today.
