Boy kills cousin with gun

By Ousman Marong

Businessman Modou Lamin Daffeh and his son [name withheld] of Essau were arrested on Friday after the son, 15, used his gun and accidentally killed his cousin.

According to Deputy Police PRO Foday Conta, the businessman who regularly treks the Niumis and environs on and often travels by night, acquired the gun for protection.

Conta explained: ”He always gives the gun to his son for packing after offloading the bullets each time he returns from his business trips. Somehow on that fateful day the gun was not offloaded and the son who was used to pulling the trigger when the gun is safe, performed the same act leading to the gun accidentally discharging and killing a cousin of his who was next to him.”
He said Mr Daffeh is being held to help police in their investigations.
