The investigation into the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, has taken a different twist as the family made a new demand from the police.
In a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, the family demanded the re-investigation of the circumstances surrounding the death of Ataga at a service apartment in Lekki, Lagos State.
According to the counsel to the family of late Ataga, Mike Ozekhome, the police did not investigate Ataga’s death professionally.
Ozekhome noted that the police prosecuted the prime suspect, Chidinma Ojukwu, and other suspected accomplices at a chief magistrate’s court without obtaining legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions DPP.
The Ataga’s family alleged that one of the arraigned suspected accomplices, Babalola Disu, carried out the murder because his short rental apartment was directly opposite the apartment where he killed the Super TV CEO.

The family alleged that Disu asked the carpenter of the Airbnb short service apartment to fix where Ataga lodged, adding that the suspect suddenly disappeared from the service apartment.
Ataga’s family further demanded that the police hand over the findings to the Lagos State DPP to formally re-arraign Chidinma and other suspected accomplices.
The suspects listed by the family are Ojukwu Chidinma, Jessica Egbochi, Abayomi Olutayo and Ifeoluwa Olowu;
