A forty-four-year-old, University of Ibadan 500-level medical student dropout, Terhemen Anongo, revealed he removed his second testicle to reduce sexual urge and his religious beliefs.
According to a report, In March 2021, Anongo removed one of his testicles causing tongues wagging.
Recently, he removed the second one.
“You know how the issue of sexual urge torments one when you don’t have a wife, coupled with your religious beliefs. I am someone deeply involved in religion and I read about Origen Adamantius, one of the early church leaders from Egypt, who paid to be castrated so that he would not be bothered by sexual urge.
“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.
“Yes, I went to remove the second testicle based on religious belief. But I told this man (his friend) not to tell you (the reporter) because I don’t want to disturb you and don’t want it in the public domain, still, he (the friend) told you.
“I removed it on Monday. The first one had little hitches but this one, having learned 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,” he told Punch.
