Enugu Herbalist Shoots 13-year-old Boy Dead While Testing Odeshi Charm
An Enugu-based herbalist is currently on the run after shooting dead a 13-year-old boy while testing out his anti-bullet (odeshi) charm.
According to Vanguard, the 26-year-old Ekene Oluka killed Obumuneme Oluka yesterday at Amagu-Uwani, Mgboko, Aku of Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State. Reports claim that Oluka had successfully been testing his odeshi on the late Obumuneme, charms which allegedly protect folks against bullets and cutlass charms, but things went downhill when his latest concoction failed to work.
From accounts, Oluka covered Obumuneme’s body with his concoction, aimed at him and fired, and Obumuneme slumped, his vital organs erupting out of his body. Oluka fled the scene.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ebere Amaraizu, said the police has launched a manhunt for the herbalist and his parents who have all fled the village.
“The herbalist, Ekene Oluka, from the same kindred with the deceased, had allegedly tested his charms for protection against guns on the deceased. It was further gathered that the suspect had earlier tested that of cutlass on the deceased, which allegedly worked out for him.
“However, this time it did not work, which caused severe injury on the head of the deceased, leaving him unconscious. “
“Meanwhile, the suspect and his parents have deserted their homes to unknown destinations, while a manhunt for the fleeing suspect has been intensified.”
Obumuneme’s body has been deposited in the morgue of Attah Memorial Hospital, Aku.
