An eyewitness said, “Daniel obediently gave his phone to the armed robbers but requested his SIM card. The robbers agreed to give him his SIM card.
“One of the assailants, holding an already corked gun while struggling to remove the phone from a tight pack to give Daniel’s SIM card to him, mistakenly pulled the trigger. In the process, Daniel was shot in his stomach.”
According to the source, Daniel was soon taken to the hospital, where he passed away from the excessive blood loss.
