Man Jumps Into Lagos Lagoon

As at press time, information about Orji still remained sketchy despite claims that his driver, who drove him to the point where he got down and dived into the lagoon, has been taken into custody.

Oji, who left from his house at Abule Ijesha in Yaba, was said to have told his driver, Henry Ita, to park his Nissan Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) marked LND476EE at the Adeniji Adele end of the bridge on the excuse that he wanted to pee.

Already, policemen from Adeniji Police Station had taken the driver and the SUV to the police station.

"The driver parked the auto, the doctor came down and immediately jumped into the Lagoon".

As at 7p.m., operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and the Marine Police Unit were still battling to rescue him.

When TheCable contacted the Lagos State Management Emergency Agency (LASEMA) at 3pm on Monday, Kehinde Adebayo, spokesman of the agency, said rescue officials were still trying to retrieve Orji's corpse. The 27-year-old lady, simply known as Mrs. Adegoke, was restrained by two RRS riders from plunging into the lagoon from the top of the Third Mainland Bridge. She heard a voice calling out to her to come to the Third Mainland Bridge.

Our reporter who visited the home of the victim today said that mother of the victim was flanked by sympathizers, who constantly consoled her.
