The victim’s father Joseph Michael, said he wasn’t aware the child was being taken for circumcision as his wife did not inform him.

Michael said he knew about it when the news came that his son’s genital has been cut off.

“After cutting off my boy’s penis, he told my wife to leave the child with him for at least three weeks so that he could treat him. But my wife refused because the boy was bleeding and she rushed him to a health centre,” Michael said.
