An Indian man has lost his life in Lagos after being stabbed by a group of robbers.

Srivastava Kumar was attacked in the Eleko, Ajah area of the state where he worked on a farm, Punch reports.

Kumar was reportedly stabbed on the hand and chest on Wednesday, February 11, after which he was rushed to the St. Nicholas Hospital in the Lagos Island area.

He reportedly gave up the ghost on February 14.

“The Indian was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday. We found out that he was stabbed in the hand and in the chest. His relatives were told that a surgery would be needed on his stomach,” a worker at the hospital, who chose to remain anonymous, told Punch.

“The doctors did the surgery on him, but he did not survive. He had lost so much blood during the attack. He died on the morning of that Sunday. His relatives had taken him away from the hospital. I know they have also reported the matter to the police and the attackers will be fished out,” the worker added.

Kumar was said to be the plant manager of a food processing company in the area.

The attack has been confirmed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu who stated that the case had been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation.
