LAGOS SUICIDE: The Truth About The Ford SUV
If there is any story that has had so many conflicting sides to it, it is the story of a woman who allegedly jumped off the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos on Sunday, June 10.
First, they said the so-called deceased arrived in an Uber-operated taxi and then they said she drove a Ford Explorer SUV to the location where she killed herself.
It got more believable when the video of an SUV packed and locked up on the bridge emerged and concerned citizens made frantic efforts to identify the person in whose name it was registered.
Disregard all you have been reading about one ‘owner’ somewhere who may now be devastated mourning several losses.
This is the truth as released by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA).
LASEMA has revealed that its officials are in touch with the owner of the SUV whose registration is being circulated.
The owner of the Ford Explorer only stopped by, just like others, to offer assistance.
The owner is not related to anyone who may have committed suicide.
LASEMA General Manager, Adesina Tiamiyu has warned that the incident is a developing issue which is presently been investigated as search and rescue is still ongoing in the waterways to ascertain the veracity of the incident.
The agency also advised Lagosians to “discard the information being circulated, as the agency and its stakeholders are making frantic effort to get to the root of the matter”.
He noted that anybody with any reliable information on any missing person to call the emergency toll-free line, 112/767 or contact the nearest police station.
