According to RRS who shared photos from the scene, the young man who tried to kill himself by jumping into the lagoon, after suddenly alightening from a cab, he would fail in his attempt as he landed on floating logs of wood beneath the Third Mainland Bridge.

The victim was rescued but sustained varying degrees of injury. He was then rushed to the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, where he was later referred to Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

The cab driver when interrogated by RRS officials, said he picked the yet-to-be-identified man from Igando, a suburb of Lagos.

“I carried him (the passenger) from Igando and he insisted I pass through the Third Mainland Bridge. On getting to the bridge, he asked me whether this was Third Mainland Bridge and I answered yes. He told me that he was pressed and that I should wait for him to ease himself. I was curious. At this time, he was forcing me to wait. I stylishly drove him to the point where the RRS men were standing inward Lagos. I told him I was no longer interested in the trip before I approached the police officers leaving him inside the car.” the cab driver said
