“The armed thugs brutally assaulted and battered Godspower and his friend, Kenneth with all manner of dangerous weapons.”
In the course of the vicious brutality and dastardly attack on Mr. Godspower Udo Effiong, Mr. Kenneth Okachi successfully escaped into safety through a window, after he had been given a deep machete cut on his head.”

After some frantic moments, it was discovered that Mr. Godspower had been murdered after pictures of his lifeless body with blood stains all over began to spread on Facebook.
