In a shocking development, a mother in Nasarawa State, driven to the edge by desperation to have a child for her husband, reportedly did the unthinkable by sleeping with her biological son from another marriage to get pregnant.
The mother, Matina Agawua, who hails from the community of Yelwata in Nasarawa, has recounted the events which led up to the sordid act she committed with her son, whose identity is not given.
According to her, her first husband died because of attacks by suspected herdsmen, but their union had produced a son. After his death, she remarried one Mr James, but they couldn’ t have a child, even after six years of marriage.
She started to face a lot of pressure from her spouse and his mother and was faced with the prospect of either having a child or seeing her marriage come to an end. Her husband had even gone as far as threatening to get another wife.
The woman, deeply disturbed, couldn’ t bear to see another lady reside in the home that she and her husband had combined resources to build and live in. This led to her deciding to sleep with her son.
” We didn’ t have a child, despite our six- year marital union because of my husband, it’ s his fault, according to the doctor’ s report, ” she lamented. ” I went for a test on my own because he refused to go for his test, and the result showed that nothing is wrong with [my fertility]. ”
” My son is a student in Akwang, and I regularly visit him. He is 16 years old; he schools there and resides with some relatives. My husband was uncomfortable with a medical checkup, so I decided to convince my son. ”
” I was compelled by circumstances to sleep with my son, but I wanted to be sure of my fertility. I know my husband; if he found out about an affair I had with someone outside my marriage, he would murder me. ”
” So I visited my son when I was on my ovulation period and convinced him to sleep with me. ” After the sordid affair, she became pregnant, but her husband became suspicious, saying that he wasn’ t responsible for it.
Her husband was flabbergasted on learning that her son was responsible, wondering how she could let her son do such a thing and pin the pregnancy on him.
The wife, however, has chosen to keep the baby, saying that the pregnancy is blood within her blood, and it belongs to her son.
However, she says she’ ll have a lawyer in case her husband ” tries to do anything funny. ” No police involvement in the case has been reported as of yet, although the woman fears that her husband may murder her.
