Sacrilege in Nasarawa as twin sisters get pregnant for their mother’s lover
*They lured me to sleep with them, says errant lover
*First twin sister: I couldn’t resist his swag
*Second twin sister: First time was amazing, I demanded another round
*I can’t be alive to see this shame — Distraught mother
It all sounds like a scene in a Nollywood movie, but it is as real as daylight. Twin sisters had a baby each two months apart for a man their mother was dating and planned to marry after losing her husband in one of the farmers/herders crises that have rocked Nasarawa and other neighboring states in recent years times.
Thoroughly embarrassed by the ugly spectacle, the distraught mother of the twin sisters, Mrs. Alice Ukange, is threatening to take her own life, saying that she cannot be alive to see “the shame” meted out to her by Philomina and Patricia.
Both Philomina, who was delivered of a baby girl in January, and Patricia, who was delivered of a baby boy in March, insisting that they were impregnated by Mr. Augustine Angwe, who had been dating their mother, Alice, since she lost her husband, Francis Ukange, after 14 years in marriage.
The couple was said to have been blessed with the twin sisters about four years after they got married. And with the death of Orange, Alice resorted to combining farming with petty trading to make ends meet.
With life becoming extremely hard for Alice and her daughters, they relocated to Assakyo, a suburb community in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital. She started buying raw food items from local farmers and selling the same to make some money.
With this, she was able to send her twins to a public school in Assakyo and the family appeared to have found their feet until a wolf in sheep clothing found its way into their fold.
The poor mother had met Mr. Angwe, an indigene of Vandeikya Local Government Area, Benue state, in 2017 while the latter was in Nasarawa State to transact his business, which was buying raw food items from the local farmers and taking them to the Southeast to sell at higher prices.
In the course of doing the same business, Angwe and Alice met in a local market in Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State and they struck a relationship which within three months blossomed to the point that Alice relocated from Assakyo to stay with Augustine in Lafia where he had paid for an apartment.
In no time, Angwe, who had lost his wife and two kids in a fatal accident on Katsina-Ala Road in Benue State and was yet to remarry, became a part of the family, rendering finance assistance to Alice’s female twins to meet their basic needs; a development that soon drew the twins very close to him.
Later, Angwe and Alice began a joint business, buying yams from local farmers in Nasarawa State and transporting them for sales at a higher prices in Lagos and Port Harcourt. The business flourished with Alice always on the road while Angwe took care of the home front and made arrangements for new stocks.
Meanwhile, one of the twin sisters, Philomina, had completed her secondary school and secured admission into the College of Education Akwanga to do a Pre-NCE program while Patricia remained in Lafia for a diploma program at the Nasarawa State Polytechnic.
Now a father figure to the twin sisters, Angwe allegedly started enticing them with luxury items and seized the chance to sleep with them at different locations until he got both of them pregnant.
Lamenting her condition in an interview with our correspondent, Alice said: “The man (Angwe) encouraged me and gave me some money to run this yam business, going from Nasarawa to Port Harcourt and Lagos.
So I was always away and he took them as his own children. Little did I think that he could lure them to sleep with him.”
Alice believes that Angwe might have used a charm on her daughters to get them to sleep with him, saying: “How he was able to start sleeping with them so easily is what I don’t know. At 22 years, my twins are no longer kids. They are fully aware that the man is dating me.”
“It is unthinkable and unbelievable. He was visiting Philomina in Akwanga and using the opportunity to sleep with her in a hotel. He enticed her with luxury items and bought her a big phone. Back in Lafia, he was also sleeping with Patricia using the same tricks.
“I was always away on business trips while he stayed behind, looking for local yams to buy. When I noticed that they were both pregnant, they refused to tell me who was responsible for them.
“Before the untimely death of their father, he had warned them never to do an abortion, saying that any of them who tried to abort a pregnancy would die. The essence of it was to scare them so they would not destroy themselves early.
“So when the idea of aborting the unwanted pregnancy was mooted, the thought of their late father’s words came and we all became afraid. They also refused to disclose the person that was responsible. So out of anger, I left them alone.
“Incidentally, Mr. Augustine (Angwe) too was asking me to leave them alone, saying that they would make their confessions at their own time. But one month, two months, three months, and four months passed without them identifying the person.
That was how they carried the pregnancies for nine months and were delivered of babies.” Shocking revelation
Alice recalled that two months after the second of the twin sisters was delivered of her own baby, Angwe woke her up one night and broke to her the news that he was actually responsible for their pregnancies and that the newborn babies belonged to him.
“I broke down in tears and cried for a whole week. I asked him what I had done to deserve this wicked act. It is a shame that my own fiancé is the father of my twins’ babies. How would I explain this shameful development to people?
“My husband was killed with members of his entire family when herdsmen invaded their village and cleared everybody in the village. We had traveled to Lafia for some medication and were the only surviving people in the family.
“I met Augustine as a gentle, nice, and humble man. He treated me like my late husband. He cared so much about my twins. But he ended up ruining our lives. How can you be sleeping with me and my twin children at the same time?”
Our correspondent had got a hint of the development early last month (June), but getting the parties involved in the matter to speak was a herculean task until he met Alice in Awe Market where she had gone to buy yams and she obliged to speak about it.
She said: “My name is Alice Ukange. I am a widow. I lost my husband here in Awe during the herdsmen/farmers crisis some years back. I met Augustine Angwe in the course of my business. One thing led to another and we started dating ourselves.
“He appeared to be gentle, humble, and kind. I was carried away and I allowed my twins to be close to him. He took time and planted evil in my house by impregnating them.
“They have now given birth. I allowed it because their father warned them not to do an abortion and that they would die if they did.
“Augustine has finished me. He slept with me, slept with my twins, and impregnated them, and they have given birth for him.
“I am confused and have informed one of my late husband’s relatives and he too is speechless.
