Nigerian Man, Terhemen Anongo Castrates Himself To Serve God Properly
A 44-year-old man identified as Terhemen Anongo has removed his testicles “to avert sexual desire”.
The man who is a resident of Gboko in Benue State stated that the decision will enable him serve God properly.
It could be recalled that he had removed one of the testicles by himself, almost losing his life in the process last year
The timely intervention of those who knew about his plight saved the situation as medical practitioners rallied round to give him attention.
It was gathered that Anongo dropped out from the University of Ibadan medical school over alleged ill health.
He had said the castration was based on his religious belief that since he was not married, he needed to serve God faithfully.
The medical student now turned a wheel barrow pusher, said:
“I went to remove the second testicle based on religious belief. I removed it on Monday. The first one had little hitches but this one having learnt from that experience, I did (remove) it very well. Somebody is always coming to dress it for me.
“I’m fine. There is no problem, I’m only waiting for when the wound will heal so I can remove the stitches.”
