The family of the late Super TV Chief Executive Officer, CEO Usifo Ataga, has called for caution from the public as it weekend alleged discrepancies in the outcome of the investigations turned out by the police.
The Ataga family in a statement issued by Dr. Isi Ataga on Saturday called on the public to forward whatever information they have to the police instead of circulating such in the social media.
“If you have any information, don’t hide behind online posts. Instead, come forward and share it with the police.”
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that a 300 Level student of Mass Communication of the University of Lagos, Chidinma Ojukwu, has owned up to killing Ataga on June 15, 2021.
Miss Chidinma Ojukwu was paraded by the Commissioner, Lagos State Police Command, Hakeem Odumosu, on Thursday.
The statement read: “Here are the facts. A little over a week ago, unknown persons savagely killed our beloved son, Usifo Ataga. With no regard for him, or his family, who love him, they viciously ended his life.
“His children will grow up to read unkind, thoughtless words from thousands of people who have joined the lynching party in the press and the blogosphere. Our aging parents must now struggle to pick up the pieces amid a cacophony of misinformation propagated by strangers.
“A suspect has been arrested and paraded before the press. We, the Ataga Family, are grateful to the Nigerian Police for pursuing this investigation. However, like you, we have many unanswered questions. Some things don’t add up.
“If you have any information, don’t hide behind online posts. Instead, come forward and share it with the Police,” the family of the slain CEO of Super TV said in its first reaction at the weekend.
“Here’s what we do know. The more you add to the false information in the press and on social media, the harder it is for the Nigerian Police to do their work and fully solve this case. The harder it is for a grieving family to recover from the loss of their beloved son.”
