Did two Australian Mormons decide they’d had enough of their religion’s squeaky-clean image?
What we know is that the duo, Amanaki Kaufusi, 21 (see image below), and Onesi Taufui, 18, had signed up to attend a Latter-Day Saints conference in Tallebudgera (Queensland) over the weekend. Not content with the program, they soon began looking for a little divertissement, and found it in the person of an unsuspecting passerby, 24-year-old tourist Onyekachi Okoye.
The pair were walking along Cavill Avenue in the early hours of Sunday morning when an intoxicated Kaufusi allegedly yelled: “I just want to hit someone. I will hit the next person I see.” … Police said he king-hit 24-year-old tourist Onyekachi Okoye, who collapsed unconscious to the footpath.
Both men then allegedly stomped on the victim’s head before laughing and walking off. When their Mormon friends pleaded with them to turn themselves in after Mr Okoye was rushed to hospital, the duo allegedly tried to flee Surfers Paradise in a taxi to return to the Tallebudgera camp.
Luckily for all involved,
Mr Okoye, from Glendale near Newcastle, later woke from a coma and has been transferred out of intensive care at the Gold Coast University Hospital. He suffered a broken jaw but no brain damage.
Remember that story the next time you hear that only a belief in God will tell you what’s right and what’s wrong.
