There was a commotion in the Kaiama local government area of Kwara State yesterday after a man shot dead his younger sibling while testing the efficacy of a gun charm he newly prepared.

The State Police Command is said to have already launched a search for Abubakar Abubakar who allegedly fired the gun at his 12-year-old brother, Yusuf Abubakar, and fled the scene.

Reports made available to newsmen revealed that Abubakar had newly prepared himself a charm capable of protecting one against gunshot. Elated with his new work, the two brothers who are residents of Dutse Gogo Town reportedly went out to try the efficacy of the charm.

According to Vanguard, the duo are sons of a hunter. Abubakar’s charm was expected to protect gunshots from penetrating and killing anyone.
