Nigerian gospel artiste identified as Precious Orogun, has been gruesomely killed by suspected bandits. Precious had two children with his wife and was a member of the Xplicits Gospel Crew, a group of talented singers from different states in Nigeria, before his untimely death.

According to Instagram reports Precious boarded a vehicle from Abuja to Jos, Plateau State, and was last seen on December 3, 2022, along the Jos-Kaduna road. One Omorogie disclosed that the deceased was travelling to Jos for a music programme when he was abducted. He also revealed that the kidnappers demanded for N10 million ransom from his family, before his decomposed corpse 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. The gospel group confirmed the heartbreaking incident on March 2, 2023, with a touching tribute shared on their Facebook page. "Dear brother and friend..
