Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Kwara State have arrested an immigrant from Benin Republic, Adamu Sime, for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his biological mother.
The mother, who was also arrested, had reportedly had three children for her son.
The Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC, Kwara State Command, Babawale Afolabi, confirmed the incident in a statement on Saturday in llorin.
He said, “On Thursday, September 9, 2021, one Mallam Bandede, the district head of Mose community in Kaima, reported the incestuous act being committed by one Adamu Sabi Sime and his mother, Fati Sime, of the same community.
“Men from the intelligence unit and NSCDC operatives in Kaima swung into action and the outcome of the investigation established the fact that the mother (Fati) had three children for her biological son.
“Further checks revealed that the younger brother of the accused, who was also confirmed to be sleeping with the mother, is now at large.
“The woman and her two sons don’t even have necessary papers to stay in Nigeria and have been handed over to the Nigeria Immigration Service for background checks and further actions.”
In another development, operatives of the NSCDC on Saturday raided some criminal hideouts in Ilorin, during which three suspects were arrested.
Afolabi said the operation was carried out by officers and men of the corps from the Ilorin West divisional office.
He said, “Three suspects were arrested in one of the crackdowns on Ago Market, Oja Oba area, llorin. The suspects are Abdulkadir Olowo, 38; Adedayo Femi, 33; and Adedayo Sunday, 36. They were all caught in the act of smoking marijuana, also known as Indian hemp.”
Babawale said the suspects were being detained at the NSCDC headquarters in Ilorin and would be charged to court at the completion of the investigations.
