A traditional healer in Nigeria who specializes in providing charms for clients has been shot dead after he told one of his clients to test a bullet proof charm he had prepared.
The 26-year-old healer, Chinaka Adoezuwe, died after he told his client to shoot him while he was wearing the charm around his neck.
Police in Imo State where the incident happened have arrested the client on suspicion of murder.
“A young man had gone to [the healer] to prepare bullet-proof charms for him, which the native doctor did,” a villager told the Punch newspaper.
“To prove the efficacy of the new charms, [he] positioned and handed over a gun to his customer. Tragedy struck.”
