A twenty two year old rusticated university student, Oluwaropo Tifase who was accused of killing his seventy two year old father in December 2014 has removed his testicles and has been admitted for treatment at the Lagos Island General Hospital.
He removed his testicles with the aid of the tiles in the cell where he was being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba. He claimed to have acted under the influence of a spirit which possessed him.
The last child and only son in the family of five children, he is accused of sneaking into his father’s bedroom and stabbing him in the neck with a pair of scissors. Oluwaropo is reported to have been rusticated from the university because he was involved in cultism in his school.
It was not difficult for Oluwaropo to be the prime suspect to the crime as he has a history of violence apart from the alleged cultism on his record. According to Punch Metro, his 65 year old mother, Funmilayo told the police that her son once mishandled her while they were having an argument.
