Babalola Disu, one of the persons arraigned in the alleged murder of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, has denied the family’s allegation that he had a hand in his death.

Disu, in a letter by his lawyers, David and Co, dated August 19, 2021, described the allegation as malicious and false.

Ataga’s family, in a statement on Sunday, August 15, 2021, instructed their lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, to ensure the perpetrators of the crime were brought to book.

The family decried what it described as the low level of professionalism exhibited by the police in the prosecution of the suspected killers of Ataga.

They also claimed not to be aware when the prime suspect, 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu, was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate’s Court, Yaba, Lagos.

Aside from Chidinma, the police also arraigned two others: Onoh Ojukwu, 57, and Disu, 42, for obstructing the police from performing their duties and failing to report a crime.

The other three defendants, Jessica Egbochi, 28; Abayomi Olutayo, 23; and Ifeoluwa Olowu, 23, were accused of receiving stolen items.

Ataga’s family alleged that Disu should have had a weightier charge instead of the ones that gave him a bail of N1m with two sureties in like sum.

Disu’s lawyer, David Orife of Davids and Co., denied the allegation against him.

He said, “This statement was undoubtedly made with the intention of portraying our client as an irresponsible man, a criminal and a murderer. Our client is the only Disu who was arraigned for refusal to report the death of late Ataga.” (The Punch)
