Unidentified Woman plunges into Lagos lagoon


A yet to be identified woman has reportedly jumped from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city into the lagoon.

According to an eyewitness, the lady came out of a taxi on the Third Mainland Bridge and jumped into the lagoon at about 6:00 pm on Sunday, June 10, 2018.

A good Samaritan who owns the Ford car, an eyewitness said was trying to stop the suicide attempt but it was too late.

Another eyewitness said the lady who jumped into the water didn’t come with any vehicle. At that time of the day, the tide would flow towards Lekki.

Meanwhile, ALEDEH can report that the Lagos State Response Unit didn’t find the car there about 5 minutes after the broadcast went viral on social media.

Though it is unclear what might have prompted her decision, however, the development is coming a year after a medical doctor identified as Orji jumped from the Third Mainland Bridge into the lagoon and got drowned.

The video below, which was sent to ALEDEH by an eyewitness, on Sunday evening, shows sympathizers at the scene.

Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, both the Lagos State Police Command and the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), were yet to make a statement regarding the incident.
