“God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds to 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.

He has been denied the joy of seeing his children grow up, go to the university, get married and make him a grandfather.

These are wishes of every parent. His love for his children cannot be quantified. No way!”the distraught mum said

On her part, the widow of the deceased, Brenda, said finding out about his demise was the worst news ever. She said she had looked forward to seeing the look he on his face if he had walked into the surprise birthday she had planned for him. 

“Sifo you had a heart of gold, a pure heart, you were kind, patient, humble, fun, loving. You could intrigue a room for hours. Such positive energy.

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 start reality that your life was cut short in your prime, at a renaissance of all you had toiled for. .. I’m lost for word.” she said

Their two daughters, Eboselulu and Emoata, described their late father as an amazing man who always listened to their problems.

The Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, at a press briefing in June said further investigations shows that there were some conspirators in the murder case.

Recall that Ataga’s body was found in an apartment at Lekki, Lagos, a few days after he was declared missing by his family. Police later arrested his mistress, Chidinma Ojukwu, a student of the University of Lagos, who confessed to stabbing him multiple times which led to his led. She later retracted her statement saying she went out of the apartment where they lodged to get some items and returned to find him in a pool of his own blood. 

May his soul rest in peace
