On the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State, a woman who is thought to be in her thirties made the decision to commit suicide by jumping into the lagoon.
According to information, the woman got out of the cab and started walking toward the bridge’s railing. She allegedly dove into the water as a result.
The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, in a situation report said a search and rescue team had been mobilised to look for the woman.
He said, “Upon arrival of the LRT at the incident scene, investigation revealed that a lady in her late thirties (30s) plunged into the Lagos lagoon.
“Further investigation revealed that the lady alighted from a Uber taxi car on the bridge and plunged into the lagoon.”
The cab driver claimed the woman was engaged in a contentious argument with her fiancé before getting out of the car, according to the LASEMA boss.
“The LRT men of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, LASWA and officials of the Department of State Service (DSS) are currently on the ground working better together to search for the victim,” he added.
