Speaking on the issue , Uche Erebuna , a member of the Nigerian In Diaspora Organisation, Switzerland, said that the cost of circumcision depended on the weight of the child.

 

“ Baby circumcision is not a common practice here ; so , immigrants who have this culture have to look for clinics where doctors can perform it.
“ I have twin boys and they were circumcised at the age of one. I paid €1, 637. 15 ( about N 700, 000) for both of them .

 

“ This is considered cheap, as it could have been about a million Naira, ” Erebuna said .
Similarly , Gloria Edema, a housewife with two male children aged four and two said that her kids were circumcised at two months old respectively .
“ On both occasions, I paid 500 Swiss franc ( N 170, 000) per child to a clinic in Zurich.
“ I can not start traveling to Nigeria for this purpose , it will cost me more. ”
Some others who spoke to NAN from Italy , France and Germany also expressed the same concern .
They opined that the high cost was due to the specialty of the process , which is a regular practice among immigrants.
NAN gathered that in the UK, the cost for such procedure is a lot cheaper , given the big immigrant and Jewish communities – with affordable and easy access to medical practitioners .
