A Nigerian lady, simply identified as Ijeoma, has been arrested by the police in Imo State, for using her menstrual blood to prepare meals for her boyfriend for seven months.
She initially denied the allegation by her boyfriend, Kingsley, but later confessed to have used it to cook for him several times on the advice of her friend.
The boyfriend said he reported the matter, after he overheard the lady telling her friend on phone about the quantity of blood she would use in preparing a meal.
“I met Ijeoma 3 years ago. She was perfect but suddenly she started cheating on me and she engages in prostitution. Sometimes she would lie to me that she is traveling to her village but ends up in a Hotel with a man. One day I followed her and caught her in a Hotel with an old man but after begging me I forgave her because I love her so much.
“Most times my friends tell me to leave her but I can’t. I don’t know why. Just on Friday we had quarrel and fought, after the quarrel I overheard her speaking to someone on the phone about the quantity of the menstrual period she would use to prepare food for me. I heard everything that’s why I reported her to the police,” he told the police.
However, the suspect confirmed the boyfriend’s claim to the police officer in charge during investigation.
She said: ” I don’t use juju, I don’t know any native doctor. I love my boyfriend so much so I don’t want him to leave me.
“A friend of mine told me that if I use my menses to prepare food for my boyfriend he would fall in love with me forever. I have done it for 7 months and it was working well. Please officer it’s not to kill him but to make him love me more.”
When asked if she engages in prostitution, she added:
” I do it once in a while. I use the money to train my two brothers at the university. I didn’t want to bother my boyfriend about their education so I engage in prostitution to train them”
Andrew Uche, the state police command spokesperson, said the matter is still being investigated.
“We are still investigating into the matter and if her boyfriend wishes to charge her to court, we would give our appropriate support as demanded by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
