Benaiah Monday has died on his way to Dubai, where he was expected to undergo a major heart surgery.
His story caught national interest after a video of his distraught dad soliciting for help for him in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, went viral.
About 48 hours after the video hit the internet, Nigerians rallied around to donate over N70m towards his surgery.
However, it was gathered that brave Benaiah lost the battle, this morning in Lagos, while going for the surgery. He was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
