A 14-year-old boy in Enugu mistakenly killed his 3-year-old brother while trying to reenact movie scenes with their father’s gun.
According to Vanguard, the incident occurred last week Monday.
The report states:
The brothers were said to be re-enacting movie scenes, not knowing that the gun was loaded.
According to a source, their father, Christian Odika, had left for their village square at Obodo-Ukwu Enugwu-Akwu, for a meeting, when the tragic news reached him.
It was gathered that on getting to his house, he met his son in a pool of his own blood.
Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, said: “Investigations into the tragic incident have commenced to ascertain the remote causes, so the law can take its course.”
