A self-styled traditional healer in Nigeria has died after one of his
clients tested his “bullet-proof” charms on him. Chinaka Adoezuwe, 26,
was killed after instructing the man to shoot him as he was wearing
the charms around his neck. Police in the country’s south-eastern Imo
state say the client has been arrested on suspicion of murder. Charms
are popular in Nigeria, where traditional healers are consulted for
cures for various ailments. But there have been several reports of
people being killed after testing “bullet-proof” charms and medicines.
“A young man had gone to [the healer] to prepare bullet-proof charms
for him, which the native doctor did,” a villager told the Press
newspaper. “To prove the efficacy of the new charms, [he] positioned
and handed over a gun to his customer. Tragedy struck.”
