A doctor in Benue state, Agber Kwende has allegedly removed the ovaries of an 18-year-old girl, Dooyum Lanna, during an appendix operation.
According to Sahara Reporters, Dooyum who began her period when she was 14 started suffering severe pains when she was about 16 of age.
Fed up with the situation, her father, 72-year-old Kparevfa Lanna in a bid to alleviate his daughters pains took her to Kwende in the Gaav Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State, for immediate treatment.
However, the doctor made things worse for the young girl as he allegedly removed her ovaries and damaged other vital organs.
More than two years after the surgery Dooyum has been experiencing absence of mensuration.
After going for scans it was discovered that her fallopian tube was already shrinking, an indication that she may never be able to conceive.
She said: “I feel sick all the time. Apart from headache, I still experience abdominal pain.
“My education has been affected also. I feel sad all the time. I cannot have kids in the future, so what is my essence in life. I feel like ending it.”
