More Details Emerge About Man Who Jumped Into Lagoon As His Identity Revealed

Earlier today we reported that a man jumped off the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge into the Lagos lagoon here. The man has been identified and more details have emerged.

Channels reports that he has been identified as Oluseyi Adekunle

It was gathered that Adekunle was on his way to work before he dropped his bag at the rails and plunged into the Lagoon in an apparent suicide bid. His ATM card and other items were recovered from the scene of the sad incident, thereby revealing his identity.

Officials of the Lagos Waterways Authority, the state emergency management agency and the marine police rushed to the scene in an attempt to rescue the victim.

After a four-hour search without recovery of the body, the officials had to call off the joint operation. The authorities are still investigating the cause of Adekunle’s action as he is believed to have committed suicide.

This incident comes barely six months after a medical doctor identified as Allwell Orji jumped to his death from the third mainland bridge into the lagoon.


  1. The rate people are committing suicide is high. The government needs to do something. Enlightening the public even our churches have work to do. Suicide is not the solution. It is eternal condemnation

  2. Only God knows what could have triggered the action.

  3. It's just sad.
    Could it be depression, frustration or what?

  4. Alot of persons with depression or one thing or d other making them worried,but suicide is & will never be the best option.
    May his soul rest in peace

  5. I don't think I'll ever commit suicide because I've been there. One thing people fail to understand is they forgot that there's always tomorrow.
