Native Nigerian doctors claim the charms harness various powers and can cure  illnesses.

‘A young man had gone to [the healer] to prepare bullet-proof charms for him, which the native doctor did,’ a witness told the Punch newspaper.

‘To prove the efficacy of the new charms, [he] positioned and handed over a gun to his customer. Tragedy struck.’

Recently there have been several reports of people being shot dead trying to prove the efficacy of ‘bullet-proof’ charms.
