Man Shot Dead As Bulletproof Magic Fails
Updated: Thu, Mar 15 12:18 PM EST

ACCRA (Reuters) - A Ghanaian man was shot dead by a fellow villager while testing a magic spell designed to make him bulletproof, the official Ghana News Agency reported.
Aleobiga Aberima, 23, and around 15 other men from Lambu village, northeast Ghana, had asked a jujuman, or witchdoctor, to make them invincible to bullets.

After smearing his body with a concoction of herbs every day for two weeks, Aberima volunteered to be shot to check if the spell had worked.

One of the others fetched a rifle and shot Aberima who died instantly from a single bullet.

Angry Lambu residents seized the jujuman and beat him severely until a village elder rescued him, the Wednesday report added.

Tribal clashes are common in Ghana's far north, where people often resort to witchcraft in the hope of becoming invulnerable to bullets, swords and arrows.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA   Let them use this method and I'll use a method approved by the DoD.   I love these guys.  Last year they arrested a witch doctor for turning a school boy into a sweet potato.

This is not the first time this has happened.
There was a case like this less than a year ago.
I think I would have tested the witchdoctors
juju on a pig or something. If they had a full
auto the Chiefs whole army could have been
wiped out.
Let this be a lesson to you out there. When
it comes to testing juju the Chief goes first,
at all times!

I would have seen how confident the witch doctor was in his powers buy trying it out on him first!

I think we ought to get some of these jujumen to protect all the liberals here in America.

Maybe Ghana needs to license all jujumen and register all their magic spells and potions to protect the children.
