Doctors extract 16 bullets from PDP Reps candidate after assassination attempt

Doctors have reportedly extracted a whopping 16 bullets from the body of a lawyer after a failed assassination on him.

Three bullets are said to still be lodged in undisclosed parts of his body.

This was made known by Alex Onyia, the Chief Executive Officer of Educare – an online learning platform, who narrated how his friend, Kene Nnadi, narrowly escaped death.

Onyia shared the news via his verified X handle @winexviv late Tuesday.

Tweeting as @winexviv, Onyia said some assailants wanted to kill his friend but they didn’t succeed.

He had tweeted: 16 extra bullets removed from his body and 3 remaining. They wanted to kill my friend Kene but God said no. All hospitals rejected him and were asking for police report before treatment him.

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

Meanwhile, findings revealed that the victim, with full name, Fredrick Kenechi Nnadi, is a lawyer and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party who contested as a candidate for the Enugu North Constituency in the Enugu State House of Assembly in 2018.

In 2022, Nnadi, again, contested for the Enugu North and South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

It may be recalled that in late October 2023, the Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, ordered the compulsory treatment of gunshot victims without police report.

This was in line with the Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act 2017, according to Egbetokun.

Various reactions have since trailed the tweet. Some condemned the hospitals that reportedly refused to treat the man:

Some respondents note that the Law already orders hospitals not to reject gunshot victims:

Others express surprise that the man could survive such attack:
