A lady identified as Ijeoma was arrested on Friday the 10th of January by IMO state police command for using her menstrual period to prepare food for her boyfriend. She denied the fact but when interrogated she confessed to have used it for 7 months so that her boyfriend won’t leave her.
Her boyfriend’s (Mr. Kingsley) statement
“I met Ijeoma 3 years ago. She was perfect but suddenly she started cheating on me and she engages in prostitution. Sometimes she would lie to me that she is traveling to her village but ends up in a Hotel with a man. One day I followed her and caught her in a Hotel with an old man but after begging me I forgave her because I love her so much. Most times my friends tell me to leave her but I can’t. I don’t know why. Just on Friday we had quarrel and fought, after the quarrel I overheard her speaking to someone on the phone about the quantity of the menstrual period she would use to prepare food for me. I heard everything that’s why I reported her to the police”
She denied the claims by her boyfriend Mr. Kingsley but when interrogated by the IPO she admitted to have used it for 7 months.
” I don’t use juju, I don’t know any native doctor. I love my boyfriend so much so I don’t want him to leave me.
A friend of mine told me that if I use my menses to prepare food for my boyfriend he would fall in love with me forever. I have done it for 7 months and it was working well. Please officer it’s not to kill him but to make him love me more.”
When asked if she engages in prostitution, she said;
” I do it once in a while. I use the money to train my two brothers at the university. I didn’t want to bother my boyfriend about their education so I engage in prostitution to train them”
The police public relation officer Mr. Andrew said
“We are still investigating into the matter and if her boyfriend wishes to charge her to court, we would give our appropriate support as demanded by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”
