    May the soul of the dead mechanic rest in the Lord. To the dead armed robbers, stay permanently in hell and may the escaped one be caught and the one in the hospital be tried and executed.

    Rip the mechanic and continue burning in hell fire the robbers. The Bible said do not touch my anointed and do my prophet no harm. thanks to God nothing happen to the priest. “PSALM 105:15”
