Man Cuts-off own Testicles While Asleep

…As he dreamt of cutting meat.

…Lands in hospital for surgery.

by Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna

A Ghanaian farmer, Kofi Atta, 47, also known as Wofa Atta, dozed-off in an armchair and said he managed to pick up a knife, while sleeping and dreaming about cutting meat.

In his sleep, he said he mistakenly cut his testicle. Still in a dream-state, the farmer (who hails from Assin Akomfede) called for two neighbours, who rushed to his house and found him alone, covered in blood. He was then rushed to St Francis’ Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu.

Speaking to BBC Pidgin, he said: “I was sitting in my chair when I dozed off. In my sleep, I dreamt that I was cutting some meat in front of me. I don’t remember how I picked up the knife; even I am confused,” he said.

He explained that he was still unsure of what had happened when his neighbours arrived; although, he stood up and felt a sharp pain in his genitals.

Perhaps, as a result of the loss of blood, Kofi only ‘came out’ of the dream-state when he was already in hospital. That’s when he realized he hadn’t been chopping meat for a family meal, but rather his own testicles.

The victim’s wife, Adwoa Konadu, disclosed that the latest incident was not the first time her husband has carried out such activity, while sleeping.

In her narration, she revealed that, “He frequently moves, converses and, occasionally, fights, while asleep. It was during one of such episodes that Wofa Atta ended up damaging his genitals.”
