“My husband is back to life….”, wife of Zaria man, Muhammad Sirajo Musa, who had a successful penis transplant in an Egyptian hospital, welcomed a baby girl a week ago according to Daily Trust reports.
It was a sad memory of Eid-el-Fitr 2009 for the family Muhammad Sirajo Musa who lost his penis in an accident while on his way to prayer ground for the 2009 Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
He was first treated at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria before he was referred to an Egyptian hospital where a new penis was developed for him.
At the first surgery, the Egyptian doctors moulded the manhood by extracting muscles from Musa’s thigh and arm.
It was gathered that the manhood was planted beneath the position of the severed penis, and was nursed for nine months before it was removed and planted in the original position.
Many residents of Zaria and other Nigerians doubted the possibility of Musa’s coming back to his normal sexual life with artificial manhood, but that doubt was cleared last week when Salamatu Maharazu, Musa’s wife, gave birth to a bouncing baby girl.
The excited Muhammad Sirajo Musa, who lost hope of having sex and even fathering a child have this to say;
“I give Allah all the glory. He was the one that saw me through the trauma of losing my manhood. As you can see, here is my 8-day-old baby. I have to also express my appreciation to the emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, because he was the one that sponsored my treatment. I also wish to thank Alhaji Isiyaka who also contributed greatly to my treatment. I named my daughter Amatul-azeez.”
Malama Salamatu said patience and believe in the powers of Allah were the factors that kept the family together during their trying time.
“I am happy to say that my husband is back to life and this baby is the testimony. Praise is due to Allah.” she added
