Woman Sleeps With Her Son To Have A Child For Her Husband In Benue State

The story of a woman sleeping with her son
from her first marriage in order to raise
children for her husband from her second
marriage sounds so strange. Unbelievable! Did
we hear you say abomination of the highest
order? Well, that’s exactly what happened when
Mrs. Veronica Iorshe, 47, from Howe, Ugee
Council Ward slept with her son from her first
marriage in order to have children for her
second husband, Sebastian Iorshe, 44, from
Aliade, all in the same Gwer East Local
Government Area of Benue State.
Beginning of a tragic story
The tragic story started much earlier when
Veronica got married, at 19, to Mr. James Hon
(now late) from Gwer West Local Government
Area of Benue state. The marriage was blessed
with one child, a son. But eight months after,
Hon died in an auto accident on the Makurdi-
Enugu road while returning from a business
trip. He used to trade in palm oil. After his
death, Veronica summoned up the courage and
continued with the business while staying in her
husband’s house. But owing to some
irreconcilable differences between her and her
husband’s people, she returned to her maternal
place but still continued with the oil-trading
business, with her only son, Simon Hon.
But somewhere along the line Veronica switched
to bushmeat marketing business. In her
itinerary, she would travel to Awe Local
Government Area of Nasarawa state to buy the
meat and thereafter sell it to the people of
Aliade in Gwer East Local Government Area of
Benue State. It was in the course of doing this
that she met Sebastian Iorshe, a Tiv man from
the area and a love relationship developed
between the two. As it were, Sebastian had also
lost his spouse two months after marriage in
So, given the mutual fate and feelings shared
by the widow and widower, they did not see any
reason not to marry and settle down as
husband and wife. They did so about eight
years ago. But the marriage ran into a big
storm when it repeatedly failed to produce a
child or children to cement the relationship.
Matters were not helped much with Veronica’s
movement into the second marriage with her
only son, Simon, now 26-years-old. Sebastian’s
mother who is not happy over the couple’s
inability to produce children was said to
regularly accuse Veronica of using her son’s
wealth to train up her own son.
Descent into the abominable act
But amid the frosty relationship, suspicion,
accusations and counter-accusations created
by this development, the couple neglected to go
for a medical check up to ascertain the source
of the problem. Veronica put the blame on her
husband. She claims that while she was willing,
her husband was not. She said she suspects that
her husband, said to be suffering from low
sperm count, had, all along, known that he is
unable to father a child.
But not too sure of where the problem lay,
Veronica decided to test her own virility or
potency by luring her son into secret lovemaking
(with a stem warning not to reveal the affair
to anybody). Investigation by Saturday Sun
reveals that the serial lovemaking session lasted
throughout the month of March and April 2018.
Each time Veronica came down to Lafia with
her son to deliver dry meat to restaurants
around the area, she would rent a hotel room
where she would, time and again, lure her son
into performing sexual acts with her. Her
reason for doing so she said, was to ascertain
whether the fault was from her or not. At the
end of April the result came out when she
missed her period, signaling that she was
But when she broke to her husband, what
ordinarily would have been good news, he
denied being responsible for it and suspected
foul play. Stating February 1, 2018 as the last
time they had sex together, he wondered how
that would have resulted in pregnancy two
months after. He added that if she missed her
period at the end of April, then he is not
responsible for it. This development led to
suspicion that created a big crisis in the family.
On 2nd August 2018, both of them submitted
themselves to a medical test in Lafia based on
the advice of a close relation. The result showed
that Veronica is three months pregnant and
confirmed the fact her last lovemaking with her
husband February 1, couldn’t have led to that.
Matters turned out worse when another test
conducted on her husband showed that he has
weak and low sperm count that would make it
impossible to father a child. The moment these
details were released by the hospital, the angry
husband, accusing her of infidelity, asked his
wife to pack out of his house to go and live with
the man responsible for her pregnancy.
Confession and moment of truth
After persistent pressure from our
correspondent, Veronica eventually opened up
to tell her own side of the story. “I am not a
loose woman,” she said. “I am just a woman
who loves her husband very much and didn’t
want to lose him. I did what I did to save my
marriage even though I feel guilty about it. It
was not easy but I slept with my first son from
my first husband so that I could give my
husband a child. But rather sustaining my
marriage, the plan has scattered it and I have
lost it.
“I got married to my husband eight years ago.
We had no child. The worst was that I never got
pregnant even for one day. When I discovered
that I was no longer getting younger, I was
worried as much as he and his parents were.
His mother became so impatient that she
started breathing down my neck as she gave me
no breathing space at all. She said that I was
cheating on her son, using his son’s money to
maintain my son, that I’m older than his son.
“She moved in to live with us and practically
made life in my matrimonial home unbearable
for me. At a point, she stopped talking to me.
The only time she would talk to me was when
she wanted to insult me and remind me of how
less a woman I was. I was confused, more so
when my husband refused to submit himself to
a medical test to ascertain the source of the
problem, though we loved each other before the
heavy pressure from his mum came. We used to
have serious lovemaking sessions especially
during my ovulation period all in the bid to get
pregnant so that my mother-in-law could stop
humiliating me. Yet, I couldn’t get pregnant. I
started suspecting the problem could be from
my husband when he refused to subject himself
to medical test. But the insult from my mother-
in-law was getting too much, too unbearable
for me. She vowed to frustrate me out of her
son’s home. To make things worse, she sent
away my son saying that he has no business
staying in the house. I had to look for a one-
room apartment for him in Lafia.
“After he left, it was just three of us in the
house in Awe, which is a distance away from
Lafia. I was always terrified each time I heard
her voice from a distance. She tried to
frustrate my meat market in Awe. In fact, the
only time that I had peace was when I went to
the market. It is so agonizing to say this.
Instead of testing someone else to ascertain my
fertility, I seduced and slept with my son.
Simon is a young man in his early 20s; he has
not started sleeping with women before I lured
him into making love with me.
“I started by buying good things for him,
sleeping together on the same bed, playing with
his manhood and gradually one thing led to
another. There was a time I asked him if he
had tested sex before and he said no. I
compelled him to take an oath not to disclose it
to anybody. I said I would teach him sex. I
ensured that I did that during my ovulation
period. I never disclosed the reason for this
but deep in my mind, I wanted to test my
fertility. I planned it during my ovulation so
that I could get pregnant, although it was not
easy sleeping with a son. I knew I was doing the
wrong thing and betraying my husband but I
saw it as a necessary action to save my
marriage. I didn’t want to go out sleeping with
another man outside. I knew it was wrong but I
prefer it from my son than a man outside.
After one month, I discovered that I was
Picking pieces of a broken life
Now that the deed had been done and her
husband had sent her packing from
matrimonial, you wanted to know what she was
going to do. She responded that she would do
nothing else but piece together the pieces of her
broken life and move on. She would relocate to
Markurdi, she said to continue the dry meat
supply business with her son. But how about the
pregnancy, you managed to ask. Is she going to
abort or keep it? Though she regrets her action,
she said, she had decided to keep it because
“it is blood within my blood.” Saturday Sun
understands that when the heat became
unbearable, Veronica asked her son to relocate
to Benue State to avoid unforeseen
Husband’s reaction
Speaking on the issue Sebastian expressed his
disappointment over his wife’s betrayal and
vowed never to forgive her. “I don’t want to
believe the story she is narrating to you that
her son is responsible for it, though I have not
suspected her or seen any sign that an outsider
was dating her,” he said. “But the truth is that
I’m not responsible for the pregnancy and will
not allow her into my house. It is a shame for
me to be associated with a mess like this.
Please, I don’t want to talk about it anymore;
she is no longer my wife.”
