“You know you will have a problem in Gboko if you do not have a girlfriend.
Forty-four-year-old Terhemen Anongo, who castrated himself In Gboko, Benue State, says he has peace of mind and can now sleep well.
Three weeks ago, Anongo, who dropped out as a 500 Level medical student of the University of Ibadan removed his second testicle to kill sexual urge.
The cart pusher, who is popularly known in Gboko, Benue State as ‘doctor’, removed the first testicles in March 2021.
Speaking with PUNCH on the telephone on Sunday on the effect of the full castration of his testicles, Anongo said he could sleep perfectly without waking up with sexual urge, adding that he had enough time to read his Bible.
Narrating the psychological effect of not having a wife or girlfriend, Anongo said, “You know you will have a problem in Gboko if you do not have a girlfriend. You will have to go and sleep with prostitute and pay either N1,000 or N2,000, depending on the style you want.
“After that (sleeping with prostitute), you feel guilt, it was very bad and almost suicidal.
Then, if I see a woman shaking her buttocks, I sometimes resorted to buying data and watching pornography on my phone. But now, the interest in these things is simply not there.
“There is no sexual urge at all. I can sleep perfectly now. I have a lot of peace in my mind, read the Bible and understand it.”
