Elisha is a musician whose wife left, leaving the two children with him.

He said the children came to him in the kitchen on that faithful day while he was cooking for them and they started a conversation.

He added, it got to a point of asking them to say ‘God’ but that they instead said ‘fire’ and kept repeating ‘fire’ ‘fire’ instead of ‘God’ ” I became provoked with their action as a result of which I picked up stones and hit them in their heads” he said.

He admitted of being an Indian hemp smoker and inhaler of stuff in addition of taking alcohol drinks.
