The man who was reported to be a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), was initially doing well with abstinence from food and water, later he posited that his male organ was preventing him from getting closer to God as a result of little erections on daily basis. Pulse has more:

A member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God who is currently engaged in the 21 days fasting and prayer organised by the church has taken his faith to the next level. In a bid to remain steadfast in his faith and not yield to the temptations of the world which might steer him of the track of his fasting, the 27 year old man reportedly cut off his joystick from the rest of his body with a machete.

According to him, the 21 day fasting and prayer session should be taken very seriously, and it is a period when one must give up on everything which gives him pleasure. He was attacked by neighbours after they taught he was attempting to perform a ritual till he was able to explain to them and a church friend could vouch for him

He had been doing well without food and water, but his joystick had been giving him trouble since he started fasting with its frequent little erections each day. In his words, ” the joystick has a mind of its own and it is capable of doing things which are totally out of my control. It usually gets erect every now and then, and konji sets in.

And you know that konji is one of the things that leads people into sin. The erections were making me weaker spiritually and in the fast. That is why I cut it off.
