Man cuts off own genitals with razor

A middle-aged man (names withheld) in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun, had on Friday severed his manhood with a razor blade in broad day light.

The incident, which occurred at the popular Oyingbo Road, the commercial centre of the town, drew the attention of hundreds of residents.

An eyewitness revealed that the man was walking along Folagbade Road but suddenly stopped at Oyingbo Road junction and brought out a razor blade. The account said the man used the razor blade to cut off his male organ.

"I saw the man coming from Folagbade Road in a well-behaved manner but suddenly stopped at Oyingbo junction.

"He pulled off his trousers and brought out a razor blade to cut off his manhood.

"Those of us who were at the scene of the incident could not believe it because it was totally strange to us," an eyewitness said.

It was learnt that the man, in a pool of his own blood, was rushed to the state hospital by sympathizers.

When contacted, the chief medical director of the hospital, Dr Wellington Ogunsanya, confirmed the incident.

He said that a high level of depression and frustration might have led the man to commit such an act.

Ogunsanya, however, said that doctors were in the process of performing a reconstructive operation on the man.
