Chibuike had on May 29, accidentally fired a gun, which killed 12-year-old Oluebube Boniface in the Independence Layout area of Enugu.
Chibuike, a primary two pupil in a nursery and primary school, accidentally fired the shot after discovering the gun which belonged to Edwin Oforma, who employed Chibuike’s mother as a cleaner and housekeeper in his house.
Following the incident, the boy was detained by the police from May 30 till July 13, when he was released but was on Friday arraigned before an Enugu magistrate court over alleged conspiracy and murder.
Oforma was also arraigned alongside the seven-year-old boy before Magistrate Hillary Asogwa.
