A man, Isiaka Abdulsamad, has been handed over to the police in Lokoja, Kogi State, for raising a false alarm over alleged disappearance of his manhood.
According to report, ‘missing manhood’ have been trending in several parts of the country in recent times, with many individuals manhandled and in some cases lynched after being accused of stealing other peoples’ genitals.
It was gathered that security operatives attached to the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, apprehended Abdulsamad and handed him over to the police after he ‘wrongly’ accused a staff of the institution of stealing his manhood.
The incident was disclosed in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday by the Head, Public Relations and Protocol Unit of the Polytechnic, Mrs Uredo Omale.
According to the statement, Abdulsamad accused the unidentified staff of the Polytechnic of stealing his manhood after taking his Post-UTME examination in the main campus of the institution, on Wednesday, 20th September, 2023.
The statement explained further, “In the course of the examination, he beckoned on one of the invigilators who is a staff of Kogi State Polytechnic to put him through the log-in details for the examination.
“He however came back to the hall after he was through with the examination and raised false alarm that his manhood was missing, accusing the invigilator who earlier assisted him of being responsible.
“The management of the Polytechnic directed the security unit to transfer the case to the Police for thorough investigation.
“Preliminary investigation by the Police and further medical examination carried out at the Police Clinic, proved that Mr. Isiaka Abdulsamad had no problem with his manhood. This confirmed that he fabricated the story in an attempt to gain attention on trending delicate stories of manhood theft.”
Meanwhile, the management of Kogi State Polytechnic has advised the general public to disregard any rumour that a candidate’s manhood was stolen on the campus of the institution.
The Polytechnic’s management also advised members of the public to desist from making false claims on missing genital organs against innocent individuals.
