A 44-year-old resident of Gboko in Benue State identified as Terhemen Anongo has removed his testicles “to avert sexual desire”.
Anongo, who is a medical school dropout, claimed the decision will enable him to serve God properly.
Last year, he had removed one of the testicles by himself, almost losing his life in the process.
He came into the limelight in March after he personally undertook the surgery, which resulted in profuse bleeding.
The timely intervention of those who knew about his plight saved the situation as medical practitioners rallied around to give him attention.
Anongo, who dropped out from the University of Ibadan medical school over alleged ill health, had said the castration was based on his religious belief that since he was not married, he needed to serve God faithfully.
Speaking on telephone with newsmen in Makurdi on Sunday, the medical student now turned a wheelbarrow 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.”
