Body of gospel artiste, Precious Orogun found two months after he was kidnapped

Suspected bandits have killed a Nigerian gospel artiste and pharmacist identified as Precious Orogun. 
Until his tragic death, the father of two was a member of The Xplicits Gospel Crew, a group of talented, gifted and resourceful musicians from different states in Nigeria.
It was gathered that Precious boarded a vehicle from Abuja to Jos, Plateau State and was last seen at Kiyaya, along Jos-Kaduna road on December 3, 2022.
According to one Omoregie, the deceased was kidnapped while on his way to Jos for a music programme.  The kidnappers had demanded for ransom before his decomposed body was found in a community by his father.
“Precious Traveled to Jos in Nov/ Dec for a Music Programme and was kidnapped. They demanded Money. Etc story. Dad had to visit the community looking for his son and found a decayed body on the floor. Put hands into his pocket and brought out his ID card and it was his boy. They killed him months back and dumped him, didn’t even contact his family until his dad went searching. I traveled to Jos many years ago and it was safe until the recent administration and Nigeria became unsafe. Rest on Brother. No one deserves to die like this,” he wrote.
A missing person post shared by one Odukoya Celeb on February 14, 2023, said the kidnappers contacted the deceased’s wife and demanded N10m ransom but all efforts to contact the abductors proved abortive.
The gospel group confirmed the sad incident on their Facebook page on Thursday, March 2, 2023.
“Dear brother and friend.. Our hearts are heavy with grief as we remember how your life was taken without a tomorrow, leaving a wound that will never fully mend. Your smile once bright, now forever gone,” the post read.
“Your laughter silenced in a tragic fate. Our memories together as a family in the Xplicits Crew is now a painful song. As we struggle to come to terms with this weight but still we glory in God for a life well spent and that heaven gained an angel.
“You were a man of honour, courage, and grace. A true friend to all who knew you well. This loss has left a void that time can never fully quell. For the dreams and plans you had in store…we refuse to question the all knowing God.
“And though you may be gone, my friend. Your memory will live on forever. Just know That you will always be loved and missed. We will cherish the memories we have in tow. And hold them close with a love that persists. You were a soul so full of life and love. A kind heart and a gentle spirit, now above. You did not deserve to die in such a way. To have your life cut short by those who betray.
“The very essence of humanity and peace. Your memory will live on as a beacon of hope
In a world that desperately needs to cope. Rest in peace, dear Precious and know. That you will always be loved and missed.
Your memory will forever glow. In the hearts of those you have impacted. Rest on Mr. Precious Orogun.”
