After the successful operation, he called to check on Robelyn and their daughter, Kiesh Darriel, Monday morning and continued their conversation on Facebook to send over photos as proof that they slayed the two leaders, Hapilon and Maute. Around noontime, he sent a message in Ilocano:“mabisinak” (I’m hungry) to which Robelyn replied, “mangan kan ah?” (go eat).


Robelyn said “by late afternoon she saw posts of his mates condoling with us saying that my husband was dead. We waited for his superiors to confirm if it was true? I can’t remember anymore who called. Maybe the liaison of their battalion, I can’t remember because there were so many calls.”

According to Daniel’s fellow SAF troopers, Daniel was killed by a sniper after he took his lunch.

SAF Director Benjamin Lusad, it was PO3 Daniel last test mission with the Scout Rangers after they cornered the two terrorists.

Until now, Robelyn still could not believe the sudden death of Daniel because she was just talking him then suddenly this tragedy happened
