In a bid to test the efficacy of a locally-prepared charm that could stave off gunshots, a man has shot dead his 12-year-old brother.

The incident happened in Kaiama in Kwara State.
The man shot his younger brother dead while testing the efficacy of the charm. The two of them had just “fortified” themselves with the charm.

Police spokesman in Kwara, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, stated in Ilorin on Monday that upon their return home after procuring the charm, the elder took their father’s hunting dane gun and shot the deceased to test its efficacy.
The 12-year-old died on the spot from the shot, he stated.
