Hakeem Odumosu, Lagos state commissioner of police, says Princewill David, the UBER passenger who jumped into the lagoon, was trying to escape justice for killing his girlfriend.

Speaking on Thursday at the command’s headquarters in Ikeja, the police commissioner said David killed his girlfriend after a disagreement between them in a hotel.

The incident happened two weeks after Daibo Davies, a resident of 17, Sosanya street, Soluyi, Gbagada, Lagos, also dived into the lagoon from the third mainland bridge.

Odumosu, while parading David with some other suspects, said the 28-year-old suspect immediately booked the cab-hailing service to third mainland bridge where he could commit suicide and escape from the crime he committed.


“He had an altercation with his girlfriend and killed her in a hotel and went to jump into the lagoon to escape justice for the crime he committed,” the police commissioner said.

TheCable had reported how David booked an UBER taxi from the Igando area of the state and told the driver to pass through the third mainland bridge.

As the driver got to the bridge, the man was said to have told him that he needed to ease himself.


Sensing danger, the driver drove close to the section where officers of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) were stationed to inform them of the unusual behaviour of his passenger.

David jumped out of the car into the lagoon and reportedly landed on a floating wood beneath the bridge. But he was rescued by the security officers.
