Video of Murdered Nigerian Billionaire Michael Usifo Ataga Released —Viewer Discretion Advised

A short video of how a mistress drugged and stabbed Super TV Chief executive and Nigerian billionaire Michael Usifo Ataga to death in Lagos has surfaced in the social media.

Michael Usifo Ataga, the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, and a director in Super Network Limited, a telecoms firm, was gruesomely murdered by an alleged mistress.  Ataga who resides in Banana Island was reported missing on Sunday by concerned friends and family after all efforts to reach him proved abortive.

Checks at his Victoria Island office showed he wasn’t there either and this put everyone in a panic mode including his wife and children who reside in Abuja. Unfortunately, his lifeless body was found this morning in a flat in Lekki phase 1 with multiple stable wounds after several withdrawals were made from his account.

Usifo who would have been 50 years old sometime last week had met a girl about two weeks ago and they began a relationship. This despite the fact that he is married to a manager in Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

Usifo who felt more comfortable meeting with his mistress outside his home and hers, to prevent nosey neighbours from prying, rented an Airbnb in Lekki, Lagos where they both checked into before the unfortunate incidence.

Following his disappearance, a combined team of concerned friends, family members, the police and DSS operatives all the way from Abuja through the concerted efforts of the wife, tracked down the owner of the Airbnb, who received payment from the bank account belonging to the mistress into which Ataga had previously made a transfer for the payment to.

Usifo who would have have been 50 years old sometime last week had met a girl about two weeks ago and they began a relationship. This despite the fact that he is married to a manager in Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

The apartment was broken into and that was where he was found dead with multiple stabs in his neck, chest and thigh.

The mistress withdrew N5 million from his account before they killed Ataga.

Apparently, the mistress carried out the murder after she must have drugged him as the security guards at the rentals said no 3rd party came visiting Atage and the mistress besides a dispatch rider who brought drugs for the girl.

The mistress who was last seen on Tuesday when the murder happened, was equally tracked down and arrested alongside the owner of the Airbnb.

Many of Ataga’s friends have expressed as to how the mistress was able to pull the dastardly act all alone as Ataga was said to have been an amateur boxer who was very strong.

After the mistress left the apartment following his gruesome death, money began to disappear from Atage’s Guaranty Trust Bank account and it was an email from Ataga’s email address asking  for a change in his account details, did the withdrawals stop.

With this, GTBank had placed an embargo on the account to prevent any further withdrawal. Investigations is still on and the case is still unfolding.

Nangolo Mbumba Sworn In as Namibia’s Interim President

Published

on

Nangolo Mbumba has been sworn in as the interim president of the southern African country of Namibia.

He was installed Sunday, following the death of President Hage Geingob earlier in the day at a hospital in Windhoek.

Geingob announced in January that he had cancer.

Mbumba said Sunday that he does not plan to run for president in elections later this year.

That means newly-installed Vice President Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah could seek the presidential office. If she won, she would be first female president in southern Africa.

However, she may face some challengers from within SWAPO, her political party.

The South West Africa People’s Organization or SWAPO has been in power in Namibia since it gained independence in 1990.

President Geingob recently upbraided Germany for supporting Israel against genocide charges at the International Court of Justice.

Geingob said Germany committed genocide in Namibia in the 1800s, killing tens of thousands of Africans.

Residents in the southwestern state of Oyo’s densely populated Ibadan city heard a loud blast at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, causing panic as many fled their homes. By Wednesday morning, security forces cordoned off the area while medical personnel and ambulances were on standby as rescue efforts intensified.

Jersey court rules in favour of returning stolen assets worth 9 million dollars to Nigeria

Published

on

Almost $9 million stored in tax havens on the English island of Jersey will be returned to Nigeria. The funds had been confiscated by the Royal Court before a court decided to return them to Abuja.

According to the Jersey court, the money was earmarked for the purchase of weapons and aeronautical equipment between 2009 and 2015 in the fight against Boko Haram. These sums were eventually diverted to shell companies belonging to members of President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.

The Economic Crime and Forfeiture Unit of the Jersey Solicitors Department, which worked closely with the Nigerian authorities on this case, praised Abuja’s contribution. The date for the restitution of the funds has not yet been chosen, and is to be decided by the government following approval by the Royal Court of Jersey.

It is not the first time that the Jersey authorities have seized money funnelled into the Island from Africa’s most populous nation.

More than $300 million embezzled by General Sani Abacha and his family and hidden in Jersey bank accounts was repatriated to Nigeria in 2020 following a historic agreement.
