Nigerian man: “I almost cut off my genitals so I could stop being gay”

By Mike Daemon | August 29th 2016

A Nigerian gay man struggled terribly with accepting his sexual orientation, and at some point, tried to cut off his own penis.

Ibe, told no one and even though many people do not know that he is gay, he feels really different and so, isolates himself.

Ibe said that he has always felt that being gay is wrong and so wishes to change. But everything worsened when he met a so called Christian prophet who convinced him that there was something special about him. He said;

I was told by a prophet that there is a light on my head and that I am going to be a very powerful prophet.

After hearing this, Ibe said that he became so worried that his sexual orientation could stop him from getting close to God, and possibly, also stop him from being a prophet, and so decided to do something about it. He said;

In a bid to fight my homosexual feelings, I went to different places for deliverance including an occult grandmaster who is now a Christian but still no deliverance came.

After so many failed attempts at trying to change his sexual orientation, Ibe said that he became so frustrated and depressed, and felt that the only thing that could take away the feeling was to completely cut off his own penis.
