I removed my second testicle to kill sexual urge - School dropout

Terhemen Anongo Terhemen Anongo

A University of Ibadan dropout, Terhemen Anongo has castrated his testicles.

The forty-four-year-old former 500-level medical student said he carried out the act based on religious beliefs and to control his sexual urge.

“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,” he said.

According to him, he is absolutely fine and has no problem with his actions. He added that he is only waiting for the wounds surrounding the area to heal.

“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 be healed so I can remove the stitches.”
