The wife of the deceased CEO of Super TV, Brenda Ataga, says the news of his death was heartbreaking.
Naija News recalls that the remains of Nigerian billionaire, Micheal Usifo Ataga, who was murdered by a 21-year-old undergraduate have been interred.
Usifo Ataga was buried at the Ebony Vaults in Ikoyi, Lagos State, on Friday 30th July.
Family members and friends paid their last tribute to the deceased whose corpse was found at an apartment in Lekki a few days to his 50th birthday.
His wife, Brenda in her tribute said finding out about his demise was the worst news ever.
“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,” she said.
“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 stark reality that your life was cut short in your prime, at a renaissance of all you had toiled for. I’m lost for words.”
The mother of the deceased, Sylvia Ataga, in her tribute said her son died an undeserved death.
“God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds for him anytime I remember. He was generous to a fault,” she said.
“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.”
Ataga’s brother-in-law, Chuks Ezeokafor, who joined the event virtually, described him as an inquisitive person.
“He chased after knowledge, he ran after things that made him a better person,” he said.
“He cared about people and he chased his dreams, that’s an unmatchable legacy.”
