Going by the claims of the brother of Usifo Michael Ataga, the slain boss of Super TV, the multi-mikkionaire businessman might not have been killed by Chidimma Adaora Ojukwu alone.
According to him, Ataga was bound, gagged and tortured before being stabbed multitple times.
So far, only the 21-year-old 300 Level Mass Communication student of the University of Lagos, who confessed to killing him, is in custody of the police.
However, Dr. Isi Ataga, in a statement, entitled, ‘Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’ doubted the possibility of his brother being killed by one person alone.
He based his doubts on the manner Ataga was killed.
According to him, “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, police are continuing with their investigation of the gruesome murder.
