A man, believed to be a medical doctor has reportedly taken his own life by jumping into the Lagos lagoon at the Third Mainland Bridge.
According to reports, the man who was later identified as Allwell Orji was said to be returning from church yesterday, March 19 when he suddenly instructed his driver to stop the vehicle with the excuse that he wanted to check something on the body of the car.
The unsuspecting driver reportedly stopped only for the 35-year old to jump into the lagoon.
The driver of the SUV was quoted as saying that the man asked him to stop, came out of the vehicle and jumped into the Lagoon on Third Mainland Bridge between Adekunle and Adeniji end of the bridge.
Meanwhile, the driver and the SUV have been taken to the police station as officials of the Lagos state Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and security officers are currently searching for his body.
