Man Dies As Bulletproof Charm Fails

A native medicine seller in Katsina State, Usman Saidu, has been remanded in the prison custody in connection with the death of a 27- year – old man, Aliyu Yahuza.

Yahuza, it was learnt , died after being shot with a dane gun.

The deceased was said to have drunk a ‘ bullet- repelling ’ concoction prepared by the native doctor, who assured him that he could not die from a gunshot .

To test the efficacy of the charm, Yahuza was said to have presented himself to be shot at.
He, however, died on the spot after a dane gun was fired at him.

The native doctor, Saidu, has been charged with criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide.

The 42- year – old will be in the prison custody until February 22, 2018, when his case would come up for mention before a senior magistrate, Hajiya Falila Dikko.

The police prosecutor , Inspector Sani Ado , who read the First Information Report on the incident to the hearing of the court on Tuesday, said , “ Saidu was given a dane gun to test the reliability of the charm, but when he fired a shot at Yahuza’ s chest, he fell down and died on the spot.

“ The victim was taken to the General Hospital, Dustinma , where he was confirmed dead by doctors. ”

The police said Saidu acted contrary to sections 97 and 222 ( 7 ) of Penal Code Code.

Ado, however, said the investigation was still in progress and prayed for an adjournment which the court granted.
