A fast-rising Rivers State-based Christian musician, Godswill Adiks aka Will Adiks has died.

The deceased who last ministered at a Christmas Carol concert in Benin last weekend was returning to his base in Port Harcourt on Wednesday the 21st of December 2016 when some suspected hired killers ambushed him and shot him at close range on getting to Port Harcourt.

His two guitarists escaped unhurt while Adiks who sustained gunshot wounds was rushed to UNIPORT Teaching Hospital where he gave up the ghost last night.

Though the motive for the murder is unknown, the Homicide unit of Rivers State Police command is currently investigating.

The budding gospel star with an angelic voice has touched a lot of lives in his short time on earth.

    Will adiks, so it is true, I was hoping it was just a bad dream, when I heard the news yesterday, I was devastated, I was and will always be one of your greatest fans, we weren’t close, but I watched you from afar, as you were rising as a shinning star, listen to your songs almost every day, seeing the way your songs touches lives, carrying the awesome presence of God, oh death! Oh what a wicked world! But I know one thing for sure, whosoever has a hand in your death, shall receive their judgment both from God and man, they and their generations unborn will never never know peace. Rest on star, rest on Godwill

    learnt your song ‘mercy’ few years ago and it brought hope that indeed yesterday can never be again. They might have killed you yes BUT they couldn’t stop your voice from preaching salvation and hope.
    you were and still are the HERO
    you brought many souls to CHRIST and you still are through your songs.

    am contented to have come across your music and i count myself blessed among the blessed souls.
    may you continue to rest in peace. God bless your music WILL

    It’s that kind shock when I heard about your dead, what a world?
    What can a human being gain by killing his fellow humans being, to me its doesn’t make sense.
    GodWill Adiks, we’ll miss you.
    May Almighty God received you in his Bosom.
    Rest with the Lord Brother 🙏.
