Family threatens to sue bloggers over falsehood on Super TV CEO’s murder


The family of late Usifo Ataga has appealed to the Police to go beyond the arrest of his suspected murderer by conducting an in-depth investigation to get to the bottom of the case.

The appeal is contained in a statement signed by Olusegun Jolaawo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, on behalf of the law firm, Rickey Tarfa & Co, solicitor for the family on Sunday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ataga, who was first declared missing on Sunday, June 13 in Lagos, was allegedly killed by his girlfriend and student of the University of Lagos.

He was until his gruesome murder, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV in Lagos.

In the statement, the solicitor urged those behind malicious social media publications to refrain from publishing falsehood that impinges negatively on the integrity of the deceased, his wife and children or face lawsuits.

He also urged Nigerians to allow the Police to conduct their investigations without any distraction or interference.

“We know that the suspect (name withheld) has been arrested and we know that investigation is continuing.

“Our client is, however, convinced that there is much more to this than is already apparent from the Police investigation.

“It has become apparent that from the variety and inherent malice in most of the media publications, they are planted to embarrass and malign Usifo Ataga, Brenda Ataga and the family,’’ the statement read in part
