Terhemen Anongo, 44, claims to have castrated his second testicle after dropping out of the University of Ibadan as a 500-level medical student.
"You know how the issue of sexual need torments one when you don't have a wife, mixed with your religious convictions," he remarked when asked why he removed his testicle. I am a religious person, and I recently read about Origen Adamantius, an early church leader from Egypt, who paid to be castrated in order to be free of sexual urges.
“It was in an attempt to do the same thing that I removed my right testicle but there was a heavy flow of blood, so I abandoned it (castration) and rushed to hospital.”
"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 be healed so I can remove the stitches.”
After dropping out of medical school, Terhemen Anongo's life turned out for the worse and was seen pushing trucks few years ago until his former colleagues came to his rescue.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
