The family of late Micheal Usifo Ataga are of the opinion that there’s a story yet untold concerning the death of their son. They demand, due to recent findings that the situation be further investigated beyond the prime suspect, who is a 300 level student of UNILAG in the person of Miss Chidinma Ojukwu.
It has been revealed after an inspection at the morgue, that the neck of the deceased was broken and there were minor bruises on his body. Sources also disclosed that there were marks on his wrists, suggesting that he could have been bound, and to that effect, a rope suspected to have been used to tie his hands was reportedly found inside the short-let apartment on 19 Adewale Oshin Street in Lekki phase 1.
A family member of the deceased who spoke with Vanguard in confidence, yesterday disclosed these information.
Elder brother to the deceased, Dr. Isi Ataga, in a statement entitled: Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’, also confirmed these findings.
“Usifo died a horrific death. He was not stabbed two or even five times; he was stabbed multiple times. His hands were bound tightly and the marks were still all over his wrists, accompanied with evidence of torture and assault even as his corpse lay in the morgue.
“And no one in the entire building heard his screams because he was gagged. Let that sink in, he was bound, gagged and tortured!
The now-viral video of the room with the deceased lying on the floor shows a room with blood-stained walls and floor, evidence of a ferocious struggle. One person could never have carried these out”, he said.
