A 19-year old student in Asaba, capital of Delta state, whose name is being withheld, has confessed that he suddenly found that he was making love to his biological mother after taking a love charm given to him by a native doctor.
In his confessional statement to the Police in Asaba, the young man 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.”
The young man was alleged to impregnate his mother while testing his love charm.
He was said to have gone to a native doctor, who allegedly 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.
It was gathered that the husband of the woman, who has been away for some time outside his Port Harcourt operational base, denied being responsible for the pregnancy during interrogation.
But the victim, the suspect’s mother, while speaking to journalists 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”, adding that the whole exercise had remained inexplicable.
The Delta state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the report, said that the young man has since been arrested over threat to life. [myad]
