He told Punch: “I did not know what was happening; I woke up in the afternoon and was feeling pains in my manhood.When I looked down, I saw I was bleeding and my manhood had been cut off.
“I had to gather some strength and struggled to get home.I walked and in some places, I had to rest because the pain was much. I never knew one could feel such pain and survive, the pain was excruciating.”
According to the victim’s uncle, Usman Aliyu, a catheter was inserted in the victim to enable him to urinate.
He noted that Farouk still needs a comprehensive surgery for his manhood to function.
