A yet-to-be-identified man has jumped into the Lagoon around the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State.
The Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Nosa Okunbor, confirmed the incident.
Mr. Okunbor disclosed that the incident took place on Saturday morning when the man who had boarded a car-hailing service, Uber, from Gbagada to a destination in the state stopped at the popular Third Mainland Bridge and jumped into the ocean.
He said, “The guy boarded Uber from Gbagada and when they got to the Third Mainland Bridge, he told the driver that he had stomach upset and that he needed to relieve himself. So when the driver parked, he got down from the vehicle, abandoned his belongings and jumped into the water.
“The incident happened around 11 am and our team has responded but I can’t confirm if he would be rescued alive or dead.”
