7-year-old boy detained for a month for accidentally killing someone, regains freedom (photo)

Finally, Chibuike Miracle Oramalu has been released  to his mother in Enugu State.

The primary two pupil has been detained since May 30, after accidentally firing a gun, which killed a 12-year-old boy, Oluebube Boniface, in the Independence Layout area of Enugu. (Read it here)

The gun belonged to Edwin Oforma, who employed Chibuike’s mother as a cleaner and housekeeper in his house. He accidentally fired the shot after discovering the gun in Oforma’s room while making the bed, as he was instructed by Chukwunanu, Oforma’s son.

Chibuike’s mother, Nwakaego Oramalu, and her lawyer, Olu Omotayo, of the Civil Rights Realisation and Advancement Network, had raised the alarm over his continued detention. 

The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, however said the boy was not detained but in protective custody.


  1. Guns shouldn't be kept where kids or anyone can reach easily.

  2. How did he even lay hands on the gun?

  3. D owner of d gun was sending both mother and son on slavery job. He could not pick one of them. Mother and son serving same man?
