Is this correct? durdurdu comes from durdurmak to stop someone or something in 'yağmur durdu' we have then a different verb durmak - to stop (by itself)

here "him or her" makes much more sense than "it". When you say "abisi" and then continue with "onu", you are probably referring to the same person (HIS brother stopped HIM / HER brother stopped HER).

Then how will the sentence "Her brother finally stopped it" look like?

yes if we had context but duo doesn't have context but i am wondering if turkish uses the same expression for something like ‘he finally stopped it’ with ‘it’ being some undesirable behavior
