Rescue officials are currently combing the water in search of an unidentified man who plunged into the lagoon from the Lekki-Ikoyi Link bridge in Lagos state.
A witness told TheCable that the incident happened around 11am.
“We were standing here when the man coming from the Lekki end of the bridge dropped his belongings and dived into the lagoon,” he said.
“It happened so fast. We thought he wanted to relax for a while. The man should be in his late 40s.”
The incident comes six months after Allwell Oji, a medical doctor, jumped into the lagoon from the Adekunle axis of the third mainland bridge.
The Lagos State Emergency Managment (LASEMA) is yet to issue a statement on the suicide act.
