Usifo Ataga and suspect Chidimma Ojukwu

The death of Super TV CEO, Micheal Usifo Ataga has yet again taken another twist as his family claims that he was tortured before his death.

Ataga was reportedly stabbed to death by one Miss Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300 level student of the University of Lagos, last week, in the Lekki area of Lagos. However, his family has called on the Nigerian police to properly investigate the matter as an autopsy carried on his corpse has shed more light on the incident.

The family believes that there are more people involved in the murder. A family source who spoke under conditions of anonymity disclosed that Usifo’s neck was broken and rope marks were seen on his wrist.

The marks on his wrists, suggesting that he could have been bound. A rope suspected to have been used to tie his hands was reportedly found inside the short-let airbnb apartment situated at 19 Adewale Oshin Street in Lekki phase 1.

The deceased’s elder brother, Dr. Isi Ataga, in a statement entitled: Who will speak for Usifo Ataga?’, also confirmed these findings.

He stated: “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.”

Dead Man Wakes Up At Mortuary Minutes Before Autopsy |The Republican News

A dead man almost met his end twice when the autopsy was about to be conducted on him. Only for them to realize he was still barely alive.

 

Himanshu Bharadwaj’s family has claimed a miracle after the pathologist at a hospital in Nagpur detected a pulse just as he was picking up a blade to perform an autopsy. The patient was resuscitated and rushed to a separate ward in the hospital after the error was realised.

Meanwhile, a large crowd gathered outside to protest against the perceived negligence, News18 reports.

Bharadwaj was seriously hurt in a car accident involving him and some other persons and he was rushed to the hospital. Though he was still alive at the time they rushed him to the medical centre, his condition worsened and he was declared brain dead – and then medically dead – before being sent for autopsy.
Dr Gedam, of Chhindwara District Hospital, said the patient’s ‘respiration was dysfunctional’ and his ‘pulse was also missing’.

He added:

‘However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning. At times, in brain dead patients, the heart and the respiratory system stop functioning transiently, which seems to be the case here. Himanshu is still brain dead. Thus, we have referred him to Nagpur due to lack of sufficient facilities locally.’

According to the Daily Bhaskar, the man was kept in the mortuary overnight.

A cleaner in the centre was reported to have raised the alarm after the ‘dead man’ grabbed him while he is performing his duties.
The cleaner, while speaking with reporters stated that he was so shocked while he noticed that someone held him in the morgue at the time he was cleaning up the premises.

Bharadwaj’s father is said to be a Bank of India manager.  (Nigerian Hive)
