Allwell Oji, a Port Harcourt-based nurse, has released a video to fault the attempt to link him to Allwell Orji, the medical doctor who ended his life on Sunday.

Orji had jumped into the lagoon from the Adekunle axis of the third mainland bridge in Lagos.

But Oji, whose picture is being used to depict Orji, says he is alive and well.

While the suicide victim was a doctor, Oji said he is a nurse.

“Good afternoon, my beloved friends and well-wishers. My name is Oji Allwell, I am a nurse. I am making this online live video in regards to the news that has been trending online about me being a medical doctor who jumped into the lagoon,” Oji said in the incomplete Facebook video.
