Police ramps up efforts to arrest killers of Super TV CEO’s killers

Lagos State Police Command has intensified efforts to arrest the suspected killers of the Chief Executive Officer, Super TV, Usifo Ataga, Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has said.

Odumosu also said Ataga’s account had been blocked to prevent those taking advantage of his death from making further withdrawals.

Giving details of the crime, Odumosu said, “The place where the incident happened is a block of flats and the lady, who rented out the flat is in our custody. She has been using the place for short-let and does not live there; she is assisting us with the investigation.

“The preferred suspect we are looking for went to the flat on Sunday and the victim went there to join her. They were there together for about three or four days and the victim was to travel to join his wife in Abuja to celebrate his birthday the following day.

“They were both in the flat and using his car to go out and return to the flat. So, when he was nowhere to be found on the day of the incident, the police went to the apartment around 4pm and found his corpse on the floor of the flat.

“He was wearing only a pair of boxers and in a pool of his own blood, but the lady had left with some of his personal belongings. Investigation led to the arrest of the person, who owns the apartment.”

Odumosu stated that investigation revealed that appropriate documentation was not done when the owner of the service apartment sublet it to the victim and the suspect, adding that the apartment lacked appropriate security measures.
