44-year-old Terhemen Anongo, a medical student of the University of Ibadan who dropped out at 500 level has stated that he castrated his his second testicle to serve God better.
Anongo who has become a truck pusher and resident in Gboko, Benue State made the news headlines in 2021 after he attempted to remove one of his testicles himself which almost cost him his life.
The man who reportedly dropped out of the University of Ibadan medical school over alleged ill-health, told newsmen that the castration was based on his religious belief that since he was not married, he needed to serve God faithfully.
On Sunday January 9, he said to newsmen;
“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.”
