SUPER TV CEO: ”Finding out of your demise was the worst news imaginable”- Wife says at his service of songs
A service of songs was held in honour of the murdered Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga at The Incubator in Victoria Island on Thursday July 29.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that 21-year-old student of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu had confessed to have stabbed Ataga to death while trying to defend herself when the deceased reportedly became violent and wanted to have his way with her at a short let apartment on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
“At some point, he was chasing me around the kitchen cabinet. I took a knife and stabbed his neck. I approached the door and he followed me. I stabbed him twice on the neck side. I threw the knife to the bed and he was going for it but I also went for it. He dragged the knife with me and it broke and he fell on the floor.”
Speaking at the service of songs, the widow of the deceased, Brenda, said finding out about his demise was the worst news ever. She said she had looked forward to seeing the look he on his face if he had walked into the surprise birthday she had planned for him.
“Sifo you had a heart of gold, a pure heart, you were kind, patient, humble, fun, loving. You could intrigue a room for hours. Such positive energy.
“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 start reality that your life was cut short in your prime, at a renaissance of all you had toiled for. .. I’m lost for word.” she said
Their two daughters, Eboselulu and Emoata, described their late father as an amazing man who always listened to their problems.
The deceased’s mother, Sylvia Ataga, said “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 wishes of every parent. His love for his children cannot be quantified. No way!”
The remains of the murdered Ataga will be laid to rest on Friday, July 30, 2021 at the Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, Lagos after a funeral service at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Victoria Island, Lagos.
