A test of a bulletproof charm took a deadly turn as a man lost his life in Ondo.
The Ondo State Police Command has launched an investigation into the shocking event that unfolded at Laoso Village in the Ondo West Local Government Area.
The victim, identified as Tunde Akinmoyewa, 27, an ex-convict and reportedly a cultist, met his untimely demise while participating in an ill-fated experiment involving a locally-made gun.
According to sources, Tunde was allegedly attempting to assess the effectiveness of a bulletproof charm and enlisted his friend, known as Bode, for the test.
Tragedy struck when Bode unintentionally discharged the firearm during the test, fatally wounding Tunde. Eyewitnesses recount the horrifying moment as Tunde fell to the ground and succumbed to his injuries on the spot.
