Sidechic in custody after married CEO of Super TV was drugged, stabbed to death

There is controversy surrounding the death of Michael Usifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, and a director in Super Network Limited, a telecoms firm, who has been gruesomely murdered.

Report has it that his alleged sidechic has been arrested in relation to his death.

Ataga, who resides in Banana Island, was reported missing on Sunday, June 13, after he didn’t return to his home and he also didn’t turn up at his Victoria Island office.

Ataga, who would have turned 50 years old on June 18, could not be reached and this caused distress to his wife and children, who live in Abuja.

Sadly, his lifeless body was found on Friday morning, June 18, in a flat in Lekki phase 1 with multiple stab wounds, according to The Street Journal.

Ataga, who is married to a manager in Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, is said to have met the sidechic about two weeks ago and they began a relationship and Ataga allegedly rented an Airbnb in Lekki, Lagos, where they both checked in to before the unfortunate incidence, the publication reports.

The police and DSS operatives all the way from Abuja through the concerted efforts of Ataga’s wife, tracked down the owner of the Airbnb, who received payment from the sidechic’s bank account into which Ataga had previously made a transfer for the payment to.

The apartment was broken into and that was where Ataga was found dead with multiple stab wounds in his neck, chest and thigh and 5 million Naira had been withdrawn from his account before he was killed.

The side chic who was last seen on Tuesday, June 15, when the murder happened, was equally tracked down and arrested alongside the owner of the Airbnb.

Ataga was an amateur boxer and reportedly very strong so his death has come as a shock to friends. Also, after the sidechic left the apartment following Ataga’s gruesome death, money began to disappear from his GTB account and the withdrawals only stopped when an email asked for a change in his account details.

With this, GTBank put an embargo on the account to prevent any further withdrawal.

The mistress is reportedly a prime suspect in Ataga’s murder as security guards at the rentals confirmed that no third party had visited the lovers besides a dispatch rider who made a delivery.

Investigations is still on and the case is still unfolding.
