Man Arrested for Cutting Baby’s Penis

The State Criminal Investigation Department, Lagos State Police Command,
has arrested a 27-year-old man, Lekan Adelaja, for allegedly cutting
off the penis of his one-year-old nephew, Basheeru Akintoye.

The police also arrested one Obinwanne Onukwo who was accused of sending Adelaja to carry out the dastardly act.

It was reported by Punch newspaper last week that Basheeru’s
penis was cut off when his 20-year-old mother, Abidemi, went to a nearby
house to have sex with one Fatai who was a friend to her husband.


It was reported that the police subsequently arrested Fatai for the
alleged crime, while Abidemi was arrested for her negligence.

The baby was said to have been rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba.

Our correspondent, however, learnt that the police arrested the prime suspect and also recovered the penis.

The penis, it was learnt, had already decayed.

A source said, “We knew that Fatai and Abidemi were not the ones that
cut off the penis so we continued to investigate the matter. We clearly
established that the crime was an insider job and we began questioning
all those that were in the compound at the time.

“After interrogation, Adelaja confessed that he was the one that cut off
the penis. He said one Obinwanne Onukwo promised to pay him N30, 000
for the penis. We believe they wanted to use the penis for ritual

Onukwo, however, denied sending Adelaja to cut bring him a penis.

He said if he was the one that sent Adelaja to cut off the baby’s penis,
why did he (Adelaja) hold onto it for over a week after cutting it off?

Our correspondent learnt that Fatai and Abidemi had been released by the police.

The baby’s father, Ibrahim, told our source that he had spent all he had on medical bills in a bid to save his son’s life.

He said Basheeru would undergo a surgery on Friday.

“From the day the incident occurred, I have been spending money. I am
just a security guard and I don’t earn much, but I am determined to
ensure that my son does not die,” he said.

Asked how he felt when he discovered that it was his cousin that cut off
Basheeru’s penis, he said, “He (Adelaja) is my cousin. We don’t live in
the same house, but we live in the same compound. He is not completely
stable mentally, but he is not the violent type.

“My son has suffered too much in the hands of people who should protect him.”

When our correspondent visited the children’s ward on Wednesday, Basheeru was seen playing with his parents.

It was also observed that a pipe had been attached to the baby’s private part to enable him to urinate.

A doctor, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity,
said there was no guarantee that the baby would regain full use of his

She said, “Basheeru’s case is that of penile amputation. If the penis
had been found on time, we could have reattached it but it is too late
now as it has decayed. We will, however, do our best to ensure that he
regains the use of the penis.

“He is still young and we are hoping that after a reconstructive
surgery, the penis would work again and he would be able to reproduce.”

Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, said the suspect would be charged to court this week.
