Alleged manhood disappearance: Panic grips residents of Abuja, other cities

Growing concerns have arisen over the activities of certain criminal elements believed to be operating in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Abuja, and other states across the country, involving the theft of male genital organs. In recent times, there has been a noticeable increase in reported cases of male genital organ disappearances, particularly in states within the North Central region, including Kogi, Nasarawa, Kaduna, and the nation’s capital.

Reports indicate that residents of the FCT have been living in fear for over a month due to incidents of alleged “manhood stealing.” This alarming trend has even resulted in acts of violence, with some individuals being attacked by angry mobs on suspicion of causing these mysterious disappearances.

There are varying accounts of how this crime is committed. Some suggest that a mere conversation with an alleged “manhood thief” can lead to the victim’s organ disappearing, while others claim that physical contact, including handshakes, is involved.

False alarms have also been raised, leading to public panic. Some security experts have suggested that many of these allegations are orchestrated to draw attention and facilitate other forms of theft during the ensuing chaos. Criminals may take advantage of the ensuing commotion to steal phones, bags, and other belongings from unsuspecting individuals.

However, there is no scientific basis for these claims, and medical experts have emphasized that the disappearance of male genital organs without a physical cut is impossible. They argue that the allegations are rooted in superstition rather than factual evidence.

Former federal lawmaker Senator Shehu Sani expressed concern over the increasing prevalence of these claims and the lawlessness surrounding the lynching of alleged thieves. He pointed out that there is no scientific foundation for these allegations and attributed them to the work of magicians.

A health expert, Dr. Kaleb Ugo, explained that medically, a man’s organ cannot simply disappear without a cut. He noted that while there are medical conditions that may lead to a reduction in the size of the penis, these conditions do not result in a total disappearance as claimed by some alleged victims.

The FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Haruna Garba, has cautioned against spreading false information about alleged organ disappearances, emphasizing that such rumors have caused public anxiety and disrupted peace in the region.

President Bola Tinubu will implement some of the recommendations contained in the Oronsaye Report.

This is majorly, in order to cut the cost of governance.

This is coming 12 years after the Steve Oronsaye Panel submitted its report on restructuring and rationalising Federal government parastatals and agencies and a white paper issued two years after.

According to Bayo Onanuga, the President and the Federal Executive Council on Monday reached a decision to implement the report.

He said: “Many agencies will be scrapped and many others will be merged, to pave the way to a leaner government.”

‘You’re responsible for Nigeria’s economic woes’— Atiku tackles Tinubu

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2023 general election, attributed Nigeria’s economic challenges to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In a statement shared on his official social media account on Sunday, the former Vice President of Nigeria urged Tinubu to take cues from Argentina’s President Javier Milei on swiftly restoring investor confidence despite inheriting a troubled economy.

Atiku criticized Tinubu for deflecting blame onto the opposition and his predecessors, calling such actions unnecessary and shortsighted. He emphasized that market dynamics respond to concrete actions, not political rhetoric.

Drawing parallels with President Milei’s leadership in Argentina, Atiku highlighted the need for well-sequenced economic reforms. He commended Milei’s proactive approach in preparing for the post-reform challenges and ensuring the availability of mitigating measures.

Atiku contrasted Tinubu’s administration’s ad hoc and hurried reforms with Milei’s strategic sequencing. He pointed out Argentina’s lean government structure achieved through reducing ministries and privatizing state-owned enterprises, contrasting it with Nigeria’s expanding bureaucracy and excessive spending on official residences.

Atiku likened Tinubu’s administration’s approach to Nero fiddling while Rome burns, accusing him of evading substantive action and blaming the opposition for policy failures, reminiscent of characters in George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

Expressing admiration for Argentina’s reforms, Atiku suggested aligning his “Recover Nigeria Plan” with Milei’s stabilization strategy to alleviate Nigeria’s economic distress. He emphasized the need for transparent policies focused on economic revival and warned against dismissing discontent, particularly among the youth, which could manifest in protests.

The statement referred to the worsening economic conditions in Nigeria, highlighted by soaring inflation rates and high living costs, as reported by the National Bureau of Statistics, with headline inflation reaching 29.90% and food inflation at 35.42% in January 2024.
