Mr. Keke Ziworitin, a 59-year-old step-grandfather, has mistakenly chopped off half of his eight-month-old step-grandson’s genitals in Bayelsa State during circumcision.

A 59-year old man, Keke Ziworitin who resides in the coastal community of Ondewari in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa state has unintentionally cut off half his step-grandson’s penis during the act of circumcision.

Sources say  Keke Ziworitin, the grandfather who has been performing circumcision for years without any such incident recorded had told the victim’s mother to bring her son for circumcision

The victim’s father Joseph Michael, informed the press that he wasn’t aware the child was going to be circumcised as he was not informed by either the Step-grandfather or the boy’s mother.


Michael also said he found out about the awful news when tales regarding the issues got to his hearing. Micheal said,

“After cutting off my boy’s penis, he told my wife to leave the child with him for at least three weeks so that he could treat him. But my wife refused because the boy was bleeding and she rushed him to a health centre,”

The eight-month old baby was  immediately rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa.
