A farmer in Ghana is suffering critical injuries after he allegedly cut off his own penis while he was having a dream about slaughtering a goat to help his wife prepare for an evening meal.
According to GHOne TV, Kofi Atta, 47, woke up in shock after feeling sharp pains coming from his penis and scrotum. The incident occurred in Assin Fosu, inside the Central Region of Ghana, on Friday, Aug. 12.
The media outlet reported that Atta’s wife, Adwoa Konadu, was out of town at the time of the incident but found out what happened after being contacted by their neighbors. When she returned home, “She discovered her husband bleeding from his manhood on a chamber pot” and holding his penis. She then “got her husband a diaper to help reduce blood flow” and then rushed him to a local hospital.
