The family of the murdered CEO of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, on Sunday, hired popular senior lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, to ensure the culprits involved in the murder are brought to book.
Naija News earlier reported that Ataga’s remain was found in an apartment at Lekki, Lagos, a few days after he was declared missing by his family.
The Lagos State police command who found Ataga’s remains, revealed he had multiple stab wounds.
The police also arrested a lady identified as Chidinma Ojukwu and several other persons in connection with his death.
According to the police, the suspect had booked the apartment two days earlier and left the scene of the alleged murder around 5.30 p.m.
In a statement on Sunday, Mr Mike Ozekhome (SAN) said the bereaved family hired him “to protect and defend the interests of the Ataga family and his teeming friends, admirers, kinsmen, and business associates, to ensure that justice is duly served in the matter.”
The Ataga family, in its instruction letter to Ozekhome, decried the alleged low level of professionalism exhibited so far by the police in bringing to book and prosecuting the alleged perpetrators of the crime, involving “Ataga’s unprovoked and cold-blooded murder”.
