A friend of the late comedian, Ajibolade Oluwafemi who posted the sad news on his Facebook page, said Paul was one of the three young men who were set ablaze in the early hours of Saturday, July 1, 2017, after they were mistaken for Badoo members.

Oluwafemi narrated that the deceased and his friends were accosted in an SUV shortly after he came back from a talk show hosted by Ikponmwosa Osakioduwa also known as IK.

Oluwafemi added that MC Think Twice's car had broken down and he had to get his mechanic to go and tow the vehicle but unfortunately, they were accosted by some vigilante members and their explanations fell on deaf ears.

They were beaten and burnt to death on the suspicion that they were members of the Badoo cult group that has been terrorizing residents of Ikorodu for a long time now.

Shortly after the featuring on the IK Talk Show, the late Think Twice had tweeted about his appearance with a photo he took with IK, not knowing it would be his last tweet.
