Terhemen Anongo, 44, a resident of Gboko in Benue State, reportedly had his testicles removed “to avert sexual desire”.
The medical school dropout believes that this decision will allow him to serve God in the best possible way.
In March, Terhemen was thrust into the spotlight after he personally performed the procedure, which resulted in a lot of blood loss.
People who heard about his condition intervened just in time to save his life, as medical professionals rushed to help.
Anongo, who is thought to have dropped out of the University of Ibadan’s medical school due to reported health problems, claimed that he had been castrated because of his religious conviction that, as an unmarried man, he had a duty 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.”
