One Thomas Agbezuke, a 35-year-old suspect in the custody of the police at Abor in Keta Municipality of the Volta region is alleged to have cut off his manhood with a sharp object.

Bloody knife

Agbezuke who is reported to be on remand over his alleged involvement in a murder case is reported to have cut his manhood with a sharp object at about 11:30 pm on Sunday night at the blind side of police officers.

Chief Inspector Asirfi Yeboah, the Station Officer for Abor is reported as saying that he received a distress call from the counter NCO, one Corporal Emmanuel Kyei that he had gone on a routine check on the inmates in the cells only to detect that remand prisoner Agbezuke had cut off his manhood with an unknown object and was bleeding profusely.

The station officer and two other officers rushed the prisoner to Sacred Heart hospital, Abor for medical attention.

Interestingly, reports say when a search was conducted in the cells, neither the severed manhood nor the sharp object the inmate is suspected to have used in cutting it off could be found.

Investigations are said to be underway to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the bizarre incident.
