Pictured above is Godwin, a very brilliant undergraduate student at the University of Cape Coast in Ghana who was murdered last week.

On the 18th of February, Godwin was declared missing by his friends after he allegedly disappeared for hours without showing up for lectures.

As friends set out to head to police station in order to file a missing person’s report, they discovered the most horrifying sight of their life, the lifeless body of Godwin Ayogu with apparent signs of torture.

The 300 Level student at the Social Sciences Department of the popular University in Cape Coast was found tied, murdered and dumped few minutes from the campus.

Godwin Ayogu‘s lifeless body was discovered by the roadside on Wednesday the 19th of February, 2014 by his friends.

24-year-old Godwin, the first 1st child of his parents planned to travel to Lagos state Nigeria to visit his parents who reside in Ketu on the day he was found murdered.

Godwin Ayogu is popularly called the Drummer boy because he played the drum very well.

He was last seen on Facebook on Valentine’s day, 5 days before his death.

    Black people with evil mind. What did Godwin do to deserve being tortured to death in this manner. I advise all Nigerina parents to withdraw their children from that shcool immediately.
    I think Ghanaian hates Nigerians ( I stand corrected)

    Warning to Nigerian parents who send their children to Ghana an other countries to study. If Godwin wer to be in Nigeria right now, he wouldn’t have died this way.
    RIP young man

      Nigeria tetiarry education though has its running problems, Nigerians don’t have enough knowledge about the kind of Universities their children attend in Ghana. The mushroom Universities the kind Nigerians attend in Ghana abounds in Nigeria too. The few credible Ghanaian Universities are just 6 in number and these are: The flagship University of Ghana, Legon in Accra, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology, Kumasi. University of Cape Coast, University of Mines % Technology, Tarkwa. University of Development Studies, Tamale. University of Education, Wlnneba. Among the privately owned Universities are just 2 that make a mark that don’t even come close to the best private Universities in Nigeria, these are Ashesi University and Central Universities, the rest are mushrooms that can’t even boast of a facility of a well developed secondary school in Nigeria. Ghanaians themselves attend those mushroom universities only as a last resort, while there; they spend their times looking for exit route to these few credible ones. These are the kind of mushroom Universities Nigerian students whose patents don’t have any knowledge of. It is time to put standards in place as a condition to acquiring Universities abroard esp in Ghana else the quality of future Nigerian proffesionals will be compromised.

    Of course Ghanaians do not like Nigerians. They are envious of Nigerians and always try to copy us but one thing is for sure. They can not be like us. I think they are still bitter about the Ghana must go stuff but we are all Africans and should stop all this nonsense. May the soul of this poor young man rest in peace and may the Lord give his parents strength.

    This is a warning to Nigerians that Ghana is afterall not safe as Ghanaians want us to believe. Godwin Ayogu’s case is strange because there has never been a case of such gruesome murder of a Ghanaian student ever in recent memory, the only reason for this murder is the deep rooted hatred Ghanaians habour against anything Nigeria. As is very common with Ghanaian media, any misdemeanure commited by a Nigerian in Ghana is given a national media hype to particularise Nigerians as criminals in Ghana. This time round of Godwin’s painful murder; the major news media establishments who usually are at forefront of painting Nigeria black have decided to shy away from reporting the murder of Godwin. The only TV station that cared to make it a news item refrained from identifying the nationality of Godwin, deliberately to deceptively hide the Nigerian hater attititude of Ghanaians.

    It is time Nigeria begins to draw the line on relationship it wishes to share with Ghana, the hatred is getting out of hand and if not controlled early may lead to very serious reprisal actions back in Nigeria. Ghana has soon forgottened Nigeria provided socour to them in their days of suffering and hunger when millions of them migrated to Nigeria to become prostitudes, house boys and rubbish collectors. Even as we speak today, Nigerian banks and Companies give employment opportunities to several thousands of Ghanaian families, apart from capital flow into the economy of Ghana as a result Nigerian investments in the country. Ghanaians just choose to hate and are envious of Nigerian successes. The average Ghanaian has taken free speech to the extreme as they insult their president on daily basis. Ghanaians talk, talk and talk for 24 hours insulting vitually anybody and everything at sight. Ghana as a country have missed the road to democratic glory and a timebomb lies ahead; the way of Rwanda, Burundi, Code D’ Ivore and Kenya.

      Johnson you are very right, the Ghanaian is ungrateful lots. Nigeria became their nearest Europe and America where the grass was greener in the 70s & 80s, thousands of them acquired Nigerian passports then to ease their exit to Europe and America. Many more of them who chose to remain became social miscreants, petty stealing, prostitution, house boys & girls etc in order to survive. Nigerians understood their problems and tolerated them. The tag name OMO GHANA became commonlly used when these Ghanaian miscreants became nuisance to society. Even today the Ghanaian economy is relatively dependent on Nigerian investments and are still enjoying very liberalised terms of oil supply to their very fragile economy. Everything about the Ghanaian economic re-emergence is totally a make beleif rhetorics, the Ghanaian with all the noises are suffering more than their Nigerian counterparts so I don’t understand where the better life stories of the Ghanaian is coming from, save for the relatively regular supply of electricity which currently I’m told is undergoing rationing.

    Africans hate Africans. Whites discriminate against blacks and every black man is called Africa. Black people with black heart. wickedness and Jealousy. There is now Doubt that Ghanaian hate Nigerians. I follow their news at Peace FM online. Every crime in Ghana is blamed on Nigerians. When Ghanaian commit same crimes, they don’t talk. African Union is a shamble. there is hatred running in the black man’s blood. We run to Europe they send us back to our continent. we run to our friendly and brotherly country with the same skin color, they behave more cruel than white people.
    Hunger for money, wickedness, Jealousy, cannibalism, interruption,witch crafts, looting our economies, brutal jungle justice murders, cultist killings and burning alive fellow brother are all the insane qualities for Africans waooooh Africa, wahala continent and race
    I wish God could destroy the black race out of the surface of this earth. Coz blacks hate themselves more than any other race hates them.
    Don’t forget that I for-fathers, where hunting down our brothers to sell for slavery in exchange for a mirror, hate, whisky, tobacco.
    God please extinction of the black-race will serve your world from Satan

    You cannot say that the universities in Ghana are bad. Universities in Nigeria are always on strike. Parents all over the world, send their children to Ghana to study. Its just unfortunate that this young man lost his life. It is heart rending and very sad. Remember, in every country you have good and bad people. You should not say all Ghanaians are bad. I am an educator and we send a lot of our students to Ghana to study, because we know its safe and also the education level is very high. Read Nigeria newspapers and see for yourself. Arm robbery, murder you name it, you have it in Nigeria. This does not mean that the rest of Nigerians are bad. Lets stop blaming Ghana. There are a lot of Nigerians living in Ghana peacefully. No one bothers them. A wicked human being is the only one capable of commiting this heinous crime. This is a horrible thing that happened. We as Africans, need to come together and protect each other from these criminals, instead of ranting and raving about stupid innuendos.

      Denise, you may not have understood exactly what prompted your response on Godwin’s murder case. Nowhere was it said Ghanaian Universities were whosale bad institutions, you’ll agree as an educator that only 6 public universities are fully operational and apart from Ashesi private University that is accredited to award its own Certificates; all other mushroom univerdities are either affiliated to local public Universities or to very obscure and unknown Universities abroad. Infastructures in these mushroom universities you’ll agree are no better than facilities you have in secondary schools like Achimota, Wesley Girls, Holy Child, Nfamsipim, Adisadel etc. Many of the Ghanaian private Universities operate from rented single or scattered buildings dotted in some cases accross the towns and cities they operate. All Nations University in Koforidua is a typical example of tettiary institution operating not only near a major central market & lorry station but also in a single storey bulding; this is one example of many mushroom Universities Nigerian students come to populate and even pay fees in dollars. Nigerian private universities don’t go on strikes and have no reasons doing so, these Universities have by far better facilities than those in Ghana. Nigerian students who are in Ghana for studies discover quite regretably they could have remained in Nigeria but the lure of excesive adverts by these Ghanaian mushroom universities; couple with prospect of acquiring certificates of a “foreign universities” influenced the decisions to go Ghana. Nigeria has more than 100 private Universities out of which a quarter have facilities better than some public Universities in Ghana, better than those of UDS in Tamale, Tarkwa Mines Universities, University of Education, Winneba and Universitiy of Cape Coast. I maintain Nigerian authorities put conditions on Nigerian student’s aquisitions of Certificates from mushroom Ghanaian Universities because these institutions are anything not better than well established secondary schools in Nigeria.

Finished in that same shit hole school with the help of God and I thank him. It’s really sad cos I knew him well and played soccer with him several times. He was a calm dude. Won’t jump into conclusion, won’t say a Ghanaian did this but I stand by my word”Ghanaians hate Nigerians” There were several life threatening cases their selfish policemen cover up for them, all in the name of “Nigerians” from attempted rape to theft, they always cover them. I’ll stop here.

    It is sad and painful as I watch Godwin’s father responding to Channel Television interviewer on Diplomatic Channel yesterday (31/3/14). The father is yet to come to term just as it can happen to anybody, it is my prayer that God will comfort and speak peace to his trouble heart in Jesus name. From his response, it seems the evil men are after Nigerian student because they are in possession of “hard currency” but can’t the dollars be paid on line directly to the school? the “poor boy’s” life is put in great danger by sending dollars to third party account for him, not even his personal account!. I would suggest that the parent of other Nigerian’s still study in Ghana should take advantage of technology by paying online directly to school account. Thank God for Banks like Zenith, GTB, UBA, etc all these banks have their branches in Ghana, let parent open account for their ward and transfer money to them directly and not through the third party. Parents should also warn their wards from “living big” in the presence of POOR Ghanaian that specializes in killing to dispossess defence-less Nigerian from being killed. $4,500 US Dollar translate to N720,000.00 Nigerian Naira, this amount can conveniently paid for school fees at Covenant University, Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, Joseph Ayo Babalola University,etc. instead of endangering the life of our Youth. May his gently soul rest in peace while I pray that God will grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
