A 19-year-old student simply identified as Godwin (pseudonymn) has reportedly impregnated his mother while testing a love charm in Asaba, Delta State capital.
The suspect widely known in the area as Ekanem, had gone to a native doctor, who allegedly gave him a love charm to use on his mother and also on one of the matrons in his school, according to reports.
Speaking to newsmen, his mother who is confused over the ‘inexplicable’ incident 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.”
While speaking on the incident at the police headquarters, the suspect 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.”
Confirming the incident, the police spokesperson, DSP Celestina Kalu, revealed that the suspect has been arrested and detained for posing threat to life.
