Bullet-proof charm: Boy kills 12-year-old brother, Police Warn Parents
The son of a hunter in Dutse Gogo town near Kaiama, headquarters of the Kaiama Local Government Area of Kwara State, Abubakar Abubakar, on Sunday, shot dead his younger brother, Yusuf Abubakar, while testing the efficacy of a gunshot protective charm newly procured by their father.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, who confirmed the incident, said the police had commenced investigation into the incident.
Okasanmi, in a statement on Monday, said, “Around 10pm on October 2, 2022, a report was received at Kaiama Police Station about the killing of one Yusuf Abubakar, aged 12, by his elder brother, Abubakar Abubakar, both sons of one Abubakar Abubakar, a hunter in Dutse Gogo town via Kaiama, during the process of testing the efficacy of a newly procured gunshot protective charm.
“This incident happened after fortifying themselves with the protective charm. The elder son brought his father’s dane gun and shot his younger sibling. The charm failed and the 12-year-old Yusuf Abubakar died on the spot. The culprit escaped into the bush immediately the act was committed.”
The police commissioner advised parents and guardians to monitor the activities of their children and wards and avoid doing “unsavoury activities” in their presence.
