A 19-year-old boy, simply identified as Ekenem, has reportedly impregnated his mother while testing the potency of a love charm in Asaba, Delta State.
The mother told the police that she could not explain how it happened, saying all she remembered is that a young man who looks like his son came into her room.
She 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 the wee hours and I was speechless.”
However, the son confessed to the crime. He said he fell in love with his mother after the charm was prepared for him.
“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.
DSP Celestina Kalu, the police spokesperson in the state, confirmed that the boy has been arrested, and would be charged to court over threat to life.
