Male private part thieves, who have been prevalent in Calabar, Cross River State, for three weeks, allegedly stole the genitals of a navy officer at the Nigerian Navy Barracks in Akim over the weekend.
The naval officer, whose name was not disclosed, was said to be monitoring the barracks’ entry point when a young guy named Samuel stepped in and was escorted to the sentry station for security screening.
“When he got to the sentry point, he was asked whom he was looking for and his mission in the barracks, but while he was talking with the sentry officer, the man felt “an electric jolt around his genitals, and behold, when he touched the area, his private had gone,” Azeez, a naval personnel, told newsmen.
Following the naval officer’s alarm, the alleged thief was apprehended and thrashed, with orders to return the missing genitals as soon as possible.
However, the alleged genital thief did not disclose whether he planned to return the lost organ and did not deny being responsible for its disappearance.
