The nurse was forced to speak out after many news organisations used his photographs along with the story of Allwell Orji, the Lagos-based doctor that actually committed suicide.
Oji’s photos along with the suicide report went viral on Sunday and led many of his friends to believe he had taken his life.
In a live video done on his Facebook page, the nurse informed his friends and well-wishers that he was alive and well.
He said, “Good afternoon my beloved friends and well-wishers. My name is Oji Allwell, I am a nurse. I am making this online video in regards to the news that has been trending online about me being a medical doctor who jumped into the lagoon.”
