Super TV CEO Usifo Ataga buried in Lagos
The slain super TV Chief Executive Officer Usifo Ataga has been laid to rest at the Ebony vaults in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The low-key ceremony which took place on Friday was attended by family members, close associates, and other sympathizers.
The service of songs was held on Thursday.
Speaking at the funeral service which held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Victoria Island, the officiating priest, Julius Olaitan, in his message called on the police to find those responsible for his untimely demise.
“He was a man with enemies; his manner of death is a testimony to that. It is a duty for those in authority to do the right thing by finding those who brutally murdered him,” he said.
“Who can imagine what Usifo went through in the hands of those who tortured him? We should be mindful of what we say on social media. Please spare the family of the good name. Our common humanity demands that from us.
“Justice is having Usifo alive since he has the right to live. His children cannot call him daddy and get a response.
“Death is a terrifying mystery. We’ve not lost him, but we’ve gained a soul in heaven. Usifo is now in a place where he can be with the reward of his earthly sojourn.”
It would be recalled that Nigeria today reported that Ataga was murdered few days to his 50th birthday in an apartment in Lekki.
A 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Chidinma Ojukwu was arrested by the Lagos state police command and she confessed to stabbing the deceased multiple times.
