Last Sunday, a woman committed suicide by jumping into the Lagos Lagoon.

It was learnt that the woman had around 5pm plunged into the lagoon after coming down from a cab.

Some motorists had initially said a Ford Explorer SUV left on the Third Mainland Bridge was owned by the victim.

However, investigations by rescue workers showed that the vehicle was owned by a first responder.

A source said:

“The vehicle at the scene of the incident did not belong to the woman who jumped into the lagoon. Actually, the woman boarded a separate cab to the scene before jumping into the lagoon around 5pm on Sunday. The driver of the SUV saw her and tried to rescue her, but he could not.”

The LASEMA General Manager, Adesina Tiyamiyu, said:

“We can state categorically that the owner of the Ford Explorer was not the one who jumped into the Lagoon. We have spoken to the man and his wife and they are both hale and hearty.

However, the man, who drove the vehicle, confirmed that he saw a woman plunge into the Lagoon. So, efforts are ongoing to recover her body. It will be premature to say anything further on the case.”

The next day, however, photos of Texas-based Nigerian lady, Toyin, went viral from a particular social media handle as the lady that committed suicide.

The social media handle even shared alleged private conversations between Toyin and her supposed lover and also their nude photos.

The story was that Toyin who was married with three kids and lived in Dallas Texas, United States of America, allegedly jumped into the Third Mainland bridge following the discovery of her alleged sexual relationship with another man by her husband, said to be a certain Tunde.

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) has however, called on residents of the state with useful information concerning the alleged suicide that took place on the 3rd Mainland Bridge lagoon in Lagos over the weekend to please come forward with such information.

LASEMA General Manager, Adesina Tiamiyu, says the agency is yet to receive any concrete information regarding the incident making the round on social media.

Tiamiyu said that anybody with useful information of any missing person should report to the nearest police station or any office of the agency.

“We are still carrying out our search and rescue at the lagoon. Both the Marine Police and the Lagos State Waterway Authority are still there to see if there is any floating body,’’ Tiamiyu said.

  1. Congratulation Mrs Toyin, now the jumping was fake so what’s up with the three kids with different fathers? Is that as fake as the lagoon jumping too? Just curious!!

  2. Lessons to people traveling to Naija be careful…too many voodoo going on, that can change your life….run!run!run. Victimized woman, your enemies shall live to see you promoted and elevated amongst your peers. Stay strong and the good Lord will continually fight ur battle. The Alfa and Otunba probably caused the DNA result to turn against you. Evil has masked Nigerians so much that they turn a good person to a miserable being…changing their God’s own plan temporarily. Evil men of Nigeria turn from ur ways! Stop killing and blackmailing people for money wait for God’s own time. Stop preying on ur fellow human beings…the evil one shall be put to shame…

  4. Good one if she’s alive; but then did she really perpetrated those deeds ? Is this really her car, in one pic the car has a Texas plate number and in the other pic no plate number, and of course the cars are not the same model, she must be living large to own these cars . . . .
