A 26-year-old native doctor, Chinaka Adoezuwe, has lost his life in Umuozu Ugiri, in the Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State in an attempt to prove the efficacy of a bulletproof charm to his client, Punch reported.
Late Adoezuwe was shot dead on Tuesday by one of his customers, Chukwudi Ijezie, who he had prepared a bullet-proof charm for.
According to the paper, the deceased native doctor, who met his death in the line of duty, had worn the charm he prepared for Ijezie and ordered his client to shoot him so as to test the efficacy of the charm claiming it would prevent bullets from penetrating his body.
