Today, a man committed suicide by jumping into the Lagos lagoon.
The man, who has now been reportedly identified as Ezebu Joseph, had stopped a moving bus on Third Mainland Bridge and jumped into the lagoon this morning before 8 a.m. He had opened the door with force and told the driver to stop and then jumped into the lagoon. The location was after Iyana Oworo, according to eyewitness. Very strange and truly sad. The man was later brought out and people are now calling for the permanent closure of the bridge as it's fast becoming the favorite suicide spot of Lagos. See the graphic photo below.
