The prosecution said Dawud allegedly started shooting indiscriminately, which caused Munkaila to fall from the motorbike at the NDC Party office on the Nima Highway.

It said Munkaila started shouting for help, but Dawud allegedly gave another warning shot and pointed the pistol at Munkaila, ordering him to hand over the backpack and its contents.

It said Munkaila pleaded with Dawud but he snatched the backpack containing the money and bolted with same.
The prosecution said on October 27, 2022, Munkaila led the Police to Caprice and identified the motorbike used to perpetuate the crime, where Zakaria was identified as the person, who received the motorbike for sale after the robbery was committed.

It said Dawud mentioned the name of one Etoo as his accomplice, now at large.
