19-year-old identified as Ekenem has landed himself in trouble after impregnating his own biological mother with the help of a love charm he reportedly got from a native doctor to use on his mother and one of the matrons in the college where he is a boarding student.
The incident happened in Port Harcourt, River state while her husband was outside the state which led to him denying responsibility of the pregnancy during interrogation.
The boy’s mother explained; “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 the wee hours and I was speechless”, adding that the whole exercise had remained inexplicable.
The boy who is now in custody at the police headquarters 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”.
DSP Celestina Kalu, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, who confirmed the report, disclosed that the boy had since been arrested over threat to life.
