A 35-year-old male fashion designer, Wahab Sa’adu had cut off his penis with a razor blade in a bush close to his house located at Alapa, Asa Local Government Area of Kwara State.
Sa’adu was immediately rushed to a private clinic in the area for quick first aid treatment before he was later transferred to another private hospital at Tanke, Ilorin, the state capital.
Speaking in excruciating pains from the hospital bed, the victim said his action was the “handiwork of witches”, who attacked and controlled him through the dream.
“Prior to the incident, I had a dream in which three unidentified women appeared to me and ordered that I drink battery acid, which I did the following morning without the knowledge of anyone.”
“Three days after, I had another dream where the same women ordered me to wake up and cut off my penis. It was after cutting it off that I regained consciousness. So I rushed home for immediate remedy.”
The Trent reports that a source from the family who pleaded anonymity said the victim had rushed back to the house with his bleeding manhood on his hand on Monday, January 26, 2015.
“We were at home preparing for the day’s work when Sa’adu came in with part of his manhood in his hand with blood stain all over his trouser.
“His (Wahab) loud cry drew the attention of people in the neighbourhood to our house and everyone was shocked to see what had happened..
His father who could not stand the sight of his son’s severed member passed out immediately.
One of wives of the victim who craved anonymity said she had accepted her fate because their marriage had produced four issues including twins.
