Tragedy struck on the third mainland bridge in Lagos on Sunday, as a medical doctor simply identified as Orji ended his life by jumping into the lagoon.

Orji was said to have ordered the driver of his grey coloured Nissan SUV (pictured) with registration number LND 476 EE, to stop before jumping into the water.

Kehinde Adebayo, spokesman of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), said efforts were being made to recover Orji’s corpse.

“The agency received a distress call  of a man who  parked his  grey coloured Nissan SUV with registration number LND 476 EE  at about 4.50 pm today Sunday, 19th March 2017 around Adekunle, inward 3rd Mainland bridge and jumped into the Lagos Lagoon,” Adebayo said in a statement.

“Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that  the man said to be medical doctor named Orji who was said to be driven by his driver and suddenly ordered the driver to pull over, dropped  from the car and suddenly jumped into the water from the bridge.
