A 19 year old Abel (surname withheld) recently promoted to SS 3 in one of the secondary schools in Asaba, Delta state has allegedly put his mother into family way after he had carnal knowledge of her few months ago.
Reports said that the boy popularly called Ekenem was said to have consulted a native doctor, who allegedly prepared a love charm for him that was used for his mother, one of the matrons in the college where he is a boarding student.
Although sources said the act committed by the boy still remain a misery to in the area, but the father of the boy, a Port Harcourt based business man is said to have reported the matter to the police.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the report, disclosed that the boy has been arrested over threat to life and other related acts, adding that the police were still investigating the circumstances of the pregnancy.
It was reliably gathered that the husband of the woman has been away for some time outside Port Harcourt, saying that he was not in any way responsible for the pregnancy upon interrogation.
But the victim, the suspect’s mother, while speaking to journalists, said, “I did not know how it happened, but all I can say is that a young man who looks like my son suddenly found his way into my life at wee hours and I was speechless”, adding that the whole exercise had remained inexplicable.
Expectedly, when it was discovered that it was not the husband who was
responsible for the pregnancy, the doctor who carried out the pregnancy test on her but does not want his name on the print said, “upon completion of the pregnancy test, the suspect confided in him of the love charm that was used for the mother”.
Speaking to journalist at the police headquarters, the suspect said, “I am deeply sorry for all that has happened, I did not mean to do this, I saw myself falling in love with her after the love charm prepared for me; I have to confess, because I know by so doing God will touch her mind and I know she will forgive me; I suddenly found that I was making love to mum when I thought the charm will not work and upon the revelation I threatened to kill her and the matter was reported to the police and I was arrested”.
