A 25-year-old man was killed by his friend in Benin on Saturday while testing his new anti-bullet charms known as “Africa Insurance”.
The victim of the incident identified as Osamame Isekhuere (alias Black Arrow) asked his friend to shoot him because he was sure his newly acquired charm was effective enough to protect him.
PM News reports that the tragedy occurred at the Oba Market and immediately caused panic among the youths, with many traders having locked up the stores following the shooting.
The late victim was said to have shot first at his friend, and the bullet failed to penetrate. However when his friend shot, Osamame was fatally injured in the chest and died at the scene.
Meanwhile Edo State Police Command Uwoh Noble, when contacted by the correspondent, said he was yet to be informed about the incident.
