The Kwara State Division of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested a man for having sexual relations with his mother.
The suspect, one Adamu Sime, was said to have been committing incest with his mum for more than three years now, producing three kids in the process.
According to the Spokesman of the Corps, Babawale Afolabi, Mr. Sime is from Benin Republic.
“On September 9, the District Head of Mosne Had Community, Kaima, Malam Bandede, reported the forbidden act being committed by Sime and his mother Fati Sime of the same community.
“Men from the Intelligence Unit, NSCDC in Kaima, swung into action and the outcome of the investigations established the fact that the mother (Fati) had birthed three children for her biological son”, he stated.
Mr. Afolabi added that Mr. Sime’s younger brother who has also been sleeping with his mother was at large.
He went on to say that the Sime’s are not legal migrants and have therefore been handed over to Immigration for due process to be done.
The Nigerian Constitution forbids, by virtue of Section 3, subsection 1, sub-sub section b of the Matrimonial Causes Act. Section 33 of the Marriage Act also forbids sexual relations with blood relatives.
