Mr. Alex Onyia, a popular Nigerian online tutor, has disclosed that a foreign hospital successfully removed 16 bullets from his friend, Kene Nnadi’s body, after he was shot in Nigeria. Onyia stated that Nnadi narrowly escaped death.

Onyia, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Educare, an online learning platform, revealed that Nigerian hospitals had rejected Nnadi before he was flown abroad for treatment.

He further noted that there are still three bullets remaining in Nnadi’s body to be removed.


Known for sponsoring tutorials for candidates of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), Onyia shared the news via his X handle on Tuesday.

Using the handle #winexviv, he tweeted that assailants attempted to kill his friend, but he survived. “16 extra bullets removed from his body and three remaining. They wanted to kill my friend Kene but God said no. All hospitals rejected him and asked for a police report before treating him,” Onyia wrote.

“We managed to get one that attended to him until we flew him to London. Today, we thank God,” he added.

The news has sparked conversations on social media, with some Nigerians concluding that Nnadi might not have survived if treated in the country. Others criticized the undisclosed hospitals that refused to treat him despite the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that no person should be rejected by any hospital for gunshot treatment, as per the Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act 2017.
