A 19-year-old boy identified as Abel who was recently promoted to SS3 in one of the secondary schools in Asaba, capital of Delta State, has allegedly put his own mother in the family way after he had a carnal knowledge with her few months ago. The boy, popularly called Ekenem, was said to have consulted a native doctor, who prepared a love charm for him to use on his mother and one of the matrons in the college where he is a boarding student.
Sources say the act committed by the boy still remains a misery to people in the area. While crying out over what her son has done to her, the mother said:
“I did not know how it all happened, but all I can say is that a young man who looked like my son suddenly found his way into my room at wee hours and I was speechless.”
The confused woman said the whole exercise between she and her son had remained inexplicable. But the father of the house, who is a Port Harcourt based businessman, have reported their son to the police. DSP Celestina Kalu, police public relations officer in the state, 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.
As it were, it was reliably gathered that the husband of the woman has been away for some time outside his Port Harcourt operational base, hence he s not responsible for his wife’s pregnancy. When it was discovered that the husband was not responsible for the pregnancy, the doctor who carried out the pregnancy test on her said, “upon completion of the pregnancy test, the suspect confided in him of the love charm that was used on the mother”.
Confessing at the police headquarters to journalists, the stupid son 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”, he said.
