There was pandemonium in Elele community, near Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State, yesterday, when two cousins, Aishetu and Ayibaba, were paraded by the villagers after they were allegedly caught in a bush path committing incest.
Ayibaba, who is said to be the son of a highly placed chief in the community, was said to have been caught in the immoral act with his first cousin, who is said to be married with three children.
However, luck ran out of them, when some community members caught them pants down, under a cashew tree. They were consequently dragged to the village square naked, while villagers thronged the square to have a glimpse of them.
Vanguard Newspaper gathered that Aishetu’s three children were in the crowd while their mother was being paraded before the public.
“We learnt that they have been involved in this immoral act for a long time now. They always go to the bush to have sex. So some members of our community followed them into the bush and immediately they started under the cashew tree, they were caught and handcuffed immediately,”
Vanguard Newspaper observed that the duo were finally taken to Ayibaba’s family house, where they met with the family.
