The remains of the slain CEO of Super TV, Michael Usifo Ataga has been privately interred.
Ataga was buried at the Ebony Vaults in Ikoyi, Lagos State, on Friday around 12.30pm in a low-key ceremony attended by his family members, including his wife, and friends.
Journalists were restricted from covering some aspects of the burial. Photos taken by some journalists were also deleted by a relation of the deceased.
The corpse of Ataga, 50, who lived from 1971 to 2021 was found at an apartment in Lekki just few days to his 50th birthday.
Detectives later arrested a 21-year-old undergraduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Chidinma Ojukwu in connection with his death.
Meanwhile, a service of songs was held on Thursday for the deceased in Victoria Island, Lagos as part of a two-day funeral as family and friends gathered to pay their last respect to the late Super TV CEO.
Brenda Ataga, wife of the deceased who said the news of his death was heartbreaking, in her tribute noted that finding out about his demise was the worst news ever.
“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 stark reality that your life was cut short in your prime, at a renaissance of all you had toiled for. I’m lost for words.
“God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds for him anytime I remember. He was generous to a fault.
“It took death for me to know how loved he was. He has been robbed of the joy of seeing a project he spent seven years working on.” she added.
