West Gonja District Police in Ghana have taken 48-year-old Alex Ikege into custody under suspicion of making genitals disappear. The Tamale Circuit Court ordered Ikege held until urologists are able to fully test the victims, and find out just what happened to their penises.
Ikege is accused of using witch doctor incantations to give four men erectile dysfunction and magically shorten their penises. The victims all say Ikege coerced them into his room, and in the middle of the night, they woke to him chanting over their genitals. It was assumed that the witch doctor had somehow siphoned the men's genitals away, but police made a statement to let Damongo residents know that the genitals are still there, and intact. They're just shorter, and don't function sexually anymore.
That's little comfort to the people of Damongo, who are now petrified of having any contact with strangers for fear of having their genitals mutilated by magic. Apparently, this is not the first time a middle-aged man has been accused of stealing the genitals of young men in their area, and they're really not interested in being victim to the next.
What we wanna know is, did the witch doctor's penis grow? Or what? Truth really is stranger than fiction.
