A 200-level student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, identified simply as Daniel, has been shot dead by armed robbers while trying to recover his sim from armed robbers in his lodge.
According to an eyewitness, the incident happened on Sunday when the victim’s phone was taken by some armed robbers who raided his lodge.
However contrary to earlier reports that Daniel dueled with the robbers because of the phone which led to his death, a witness present at the scene of the incident noted that Daniel only requested for him a sim card. According to the witness, the robber agreed to give him the sim card before a hoodlum shot him in the stomach.
The 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.
“While holding his gun and struggling to remove a phone in a tight pack to give Daniel his SIM card, the hoodlum pulled the trigger and he (Daniel) was shot in the stomach.” Daniel however died in a hospital.
Also, the state police spokesman, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the incident.
