In a surprising and unusual case, a 20-year-old man named Onoja Kingsley was arraigned in the Wuse Zone II Magistrates Court for falsely claiming that his genitals had mysteriously ‘disappeared.’ The charges brought against him by the police include joint acts, causing grievous harm, attempted culpable homicide, theft, and providing false information to the public.
Despite the severe nature of the allegations, Kingsley pleaded not guilty during the court proceedings.

According to the prosecuting counsel, E. A. Inegbenoise, the case was reported by a complainant named Ndifreke Ebong from Gaduwa Estate, Abuja, on October 7. Ebong and fellow church members were distributing flyers in preparation for their Sunday service in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
They innocently handed a leaflet to Kingsley and other group members, who were later identified as accomplices but remained at large.
Inegbenoise explained, “The defendant then unlawfully and falsely accused the complainant of stealing his manhood. The complainant was beaten and stabbed with dangerous weapons by the defendant’s gang members, who later fled the scene. However, Kingsley was apprehended.”
As a result of the brutal assault, the complainant sustained significant injuries. Additionally, his mobile phone, valued at N500,000, and a wallet containing essential documents were stolen during the incident.
During police interrogation, Kingsley disclosed that his supposedly ‘disappeared manhood’ had returned and was functioning normally.
The charges against Kingsley violate several provisions of the Penal Code, including sections 80, 248, 229, 287, and 178.
The prosecutor objected to granting bail to the defendant, citing concerns about his lack of a traceable address and the potential impact on ongoing police investigations. However, Magistrate Abba Bello emphasized that bail is at the court’s discretion and should be exercised judiciously.
Ultimately, the magistrate granted the defendant bail in the amount of N1 million, with a surety who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction. The prosecutor and the court’s registrar were instructed to verify the surety’s address before Kingsley could be released.
The case has been scheduled for a hearing on November 20.
