Brenda Ataga, the widow of the late CEO of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, has revealed that finding out about his demise is the worst news she has ever received, adding that she was looking forward to seeing the look on his face if he had walked into the surprise birthday she had planned for him.
Mrs. Ataga stated this at the service of songs held in honour of the deceased at The Incubator, Victoria Island, Lagos State on Friday, July 30.
She said: “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.
Eboselulu and Emoata Ataga, daughters of the deceased described their late father as an amazing man who always listened to their problems.
Ataga was laid to rest today Friday, July 30, at Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Recall that Ataga’s body was found in an apartment at Lekki, Lagos, a few days after he was declared missing by his family.
Police later arrested his mistress, Chidinma Ojukwu, a student of the University of Lagos, who confessed to stabbing him multiple times which led to his led death. She later retracted her earlier statement saying she went out of the apartment where they lodged to get some items and returned to find him in a pool of his own blood.
The Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, at a press briefing in June said further investigations shows that there were some conspirators in the murder case.
