According to report, the boy, famously known as Ekenem, 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.
Speaking at the police headquarters to journalists, 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."
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.
