A Port Harcourt, Rivers State-based nurse, Oji Allwell, whose photograph went viral on the social media on Monday, has denied being the doctor who jumped into the lagoon in Lagos State on Sunday.
The nurse has however pleaded that the press stop using his picture in the suicide story.
The emergence of Allwell’s photograph came hours after a medical doctor, Allwell Orji Chiawolamoke, jumped into the lagoon in Lagos State from the Third Mainland Bridge.
But the nurse said on his Facebook page alongside a video: “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.”
Meanwhile, the family of the medical doctor, Dr. Allwell Orji, who killed himself on Sunday, March 19, by jumping into the Lagos lagoon has asked Nigerians to respect their grief.
“Please respect our grief. This is a difficult time for us and we don’t want to make comments on this issue. It is not something to be celebrated. We believe that he’s still alive. God still does miracles,” states a family member.
