A man in Nigeria has cut off his genitals to curb his lustful desires for women. Terhemen Anongo, popularly called “Doc K” or “Bob Korna” said his drastic action was spiritually guided by the teachings in the Bible citing Matthew 18:19 which says “ ‘If your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out…”. 

Anongo, who resides in Gboko in Benue state had long been desperately trying to deal with his excessive sexual desires. He sought medical intervention via genital surgery from several professionals, however, his request was repeatedly turned down.

Having attended some years from the University of Ibadan medical school  he lingered on the thought of performing the procedure on himself. 

Anongo had dropped out from medical school in 2007 due to psychiatric reasons. He lives alone in his father’s house after having chased out all his other relatives whom he had accused of playing party to his plight. Despite his reported intelligence, he now works as a wheelbarrow pusher in the market, transporting goods of traders and buyers.

Bent on pursuing his intentions to self-castrate, Anongo decided to take matters into his own hands. He had acquired the tools and medications needed for the surgery and prepared for the procedure. 

After dabbing on local anaesthetics on his genitals, he chopped off his right testicle. He was determined to remove his left testicle but excessive bleeding caused him to stop the procedure and seek medical help in a facility, The World News wrote.

He was treated and discharged a few days after his admission.

Upon his release, he was asked whether he would remove his remaining testicle after recovering, Anongo replied : “ No, I won’t do it again.”

Meanwhile, in a story from The Smoking Gun, a man in Florida had his penis cut with a pair of scissors as a result of an enraged husband’s revenge for having an affair with his wife. Alex Bonilla, 51, had enough of his cheating wife’s deceitful trysts and went to her lover’s home to confront him. 

According to reports, Bonilla tied up the man in the bedroom and told him that he was not going to die today. Instead, he pulled down the victim’s shorts and used a pair of scissors to cut the man’s penis. 

The victim underwent reconstructive surgery but doctors had a difficult time re-attaching the severed appendage. Losing his manhood not only left him with the inability to have sex with his wife, but has also caused him much difficulty urinating. Bonilla was sentenced on February 25 and will serve 20 years in jail with a 10-year probation.
