A lady identified as the side chick of Super TV CEO and Nigerian billionaire Michael Usifo Ataga, has been arrested after she reportedly killed him in Lekki, Lagos.
The billionaire had been reported missing when his family was unable to reach him after a couple of days, according to Street Journal.
His wife and children who resides Abuja became worried after checks at his Victoria Island office or banana island home showed he wasn’t there either.
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.
According to reports Ataga who is married to a manager in Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, had met the lady in question about two weeks ago and the duo had began dating.
Following his disappearance, the police and DSS operatives all the way from Abuja through the efforts of the wife, tracked down the owner of the Airbnb, who received payment from the side chic’s bank account into which Ataga had previously made a transfer for the payment to.
The apartment was broken into and that was where he was found dead with multiple stabs wounds in his neck, chest and thigh.
An amount of N5 million was withdrawn from his account before he was killed.
Apparently, the side chic 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 side chic besides a dispatch rider who brought drugs for the girl.
The side chic who was last seen on Tuesday when the murder happened, was equally tracked down and arrested alongside the owner of the Airbnb..
After the side chic left the apartment following his gruesome death, money began to disappear from Atage’s Guaranty Trust Bank account.
GTBank put an embargo on the account to prevent any further withdrawal after an email was sent.
Investigations is still on and the case is still unfolding.
