A yet-to-be identified woman has jumped off the Third Mainland Bridge into the Lagos Lagoon, in what looks like a suicide mission.
Dr Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, the permanent secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Agency, LASEMA, confirmed the incident. He stated that rescuers were searching for the woman’s body.
“The LRT, men of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Lagos State Waterways Authority, LASWA, and officials of the Department of State Service, DSS, are still searching for the victim,” he said.
He added the lady, who is in her late 30s, ‘alighted from a commercial cab on the bridge and suddenly plunged into the lagoon’.
