By Nosa Akenzua, Benin
A middle aged woman Mrs Mariam Ojemu from Okpella Edo State last Tuesday allegedly poisoned her son for forcefully having sex with her during nightfall in the community.
It was gathered that the woman and her son in Okpella had gone to their farm land when her bewitched son ( names withheld) forcefully had sex with her on their way home to enable him soak a handkerchief into mixed semen for money rituals since he had been Jobless over the years that he graduated from one of the Polytechnics in the South South region.
Sources said that the culprit had allegedly been embattled in ritualistic activities with a view to making money to no avail until he was introduced to the ritual of sleeping with his mother and robbing his semen in the handkerchief, a situation that will ensure money coming out from the handkerchief after some days.
But his mother who spoke to our correspondent in Benin said “I didn’t have to argue with him since he threatened to kill me if I don’t or even attempt to reveal the act to anyone. So I made up my mind that such abominable act will not go unpunished. When I got home, I behaved as if nothing happened and made him a very good food that he always likes, and I mixed it with a local otapiapia poison, and I warned that the other children strictly not to eat the food I reserved for him and he ate the food peacefully, apparently for the joy of the huge incoming cash and after that meal he started struggling with life and he died. “
SP Chidi Nwabuzor, the police Public Relations Officer in the State who confirmed the incident to Journalists, said that the sudden death of the boy prompted the intervention of the police and the mother was arrested and the woman told the police in clear terms that she killed the boy.
SP Chidi Nwabuzor said” We have decided that there is no reason to keep her waiting and investigating. The woman openly confessed to the police that she killed the son. According to her, “ I killed the boy and is there any man that will force his mother for sex and still stay alive? I killed him. My son had sex with me in the farm while we were going home after he had threatened to kill me with gun if I refused to have sex with him in the open”
SP Chidi Nwabuzor disclosed that the woman was currently being detained at the state CID for further investigation, adding that the body of the victim had been deposited at the central hospital mortuary in Benin City Edo State.
