Friends of Ike Ephraim demand justice

Friends of Cayne Mange murder victim, Ike Ephraim, are demanding justice in the aftermath of the death of the twenty-seven year old.

A group of four friends of the deceased who recently came down from Canada were at court in Gros Islet  Tuesday morning when the accused in Ephraim’s murder, Lester Daniel of Morne Du Don, made his first appearance.

Daniel, in handcuffs and escorted by an armed police officer,  was remanded in custody at Bordelais Correctional Facility until July 12.

“Ike was like a brother to me – he is very close to me; I grew up with him – I raised him as a matter of fact for a number of years,” one of the friends said.

He said he considered Ike a brother.

The friend, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that he expects justice will prevail.

“Whoever did this gruesome act to Ike – let the Lord deal with them accordingly,” he declared.

Ephraim’s body was discovered in a drain at Caye Mange last week.

It has been alleged that he was beaten up  and his body later dumped in the community.

It was Saint Lucia’s 28th homicide for the year.

Everything for yall is police, they would have just released Ike and he would have gone to finish the job on lester and yall saying why lester didn’t ban him from the club. Yeah good idea to ban a thug from your club and then let it get burnt down

    All of you quoting the Bible and using god in your sentences, the same God told the scribes and pharasies he without sin cast the first stone. The same God forgave David for committing murder of his best friend to steal his wife. The same God forgave Saul and changed his name to Paul who became a great preacher. Some of you like to judge too fast and condemn like y’all are without sins. All sin is sin. Lester may have committed murder but more than half of you have done the same in your wombs, half of you steal, lie, cheat, commit adultery and fornication. It is sad that a young man had to die and the life of another is at stake but the best we all should say and do is pray for the families affected and ask God for the strength and courage to forgive even as God forgives us all!

      Very well stated, my friend. The problem with us is that we are too unforgiving, yet we invoke the name of God all the time, in order to demonstrate righteousness. We boldly quote scripture to point to the things we say God does not like, but we fail to quote the instances when God, through his son, Jesus Christ, showed understanding and compassion in the wake of sin. We really have not yet learnt the lessons of life.

I am not saying evil for evil but he was an ass to the community now that he got his for all what he has done some people have the guts to try and make this guy out to be something good.

    There are two separate issues here, a life taken and the behaviour of an individual.
    I can understand how unpopular mischief can make a person, but nothing justifies taking a life.
    Only when death plays its hand in your life, then and only then you will understand the pain of losing your loved ones.
    The previous comments on condoning taking a life is chilling.

    Someone so ……
    Slow to anger, boy this guy must have pushed it to your neck.
    I don’t support taking someone’s life.
    Lester should have called the police to intervene.
    But u know sum…
    The police has failed us so many times man.
    All I could do is just cry.
    My grandma always says “NEVER SAY YOU WILL NEVER END UP IN JAIL.”
    Serious anger could blow up your mind in a second.
    We need programmes here to help us deal with anger management in the BEST possible way ever.
