His elder brother shot him dead while testing the efficacy of the charm that both of them had deployed to “fortify” themselves.

According to Kwara State Police Command spokesman, 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.
