Lagos State Emergency Management Agency revealed the identity of the medical doctor who killed himself on Sunday by jumping into the Lagos lagoon as Orji

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency [LASEMA] has revealed the identity of the medical doctor who killed himself on Sunday, March 19 by jumping into the Lagos lagoon as Orji.

The spokesperson of LASEMA, Kehinde Adebayo, explained that the agency was alerted by concerned Nigerians over the incident.

“The Agency received a distress call of a man who parked his grey coloured Nissan SUV with registration number LND 476 EE at about 4.50 pm today Sunday.

“The incident happened around Adekunle, inward 3rd Mainland bridge and jumped into the Lagos Lagoon.

“Preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that the man said to be a medical doctor named Orji was said to be driven by his driver and suddenly ordered the driver to pull over.

“He dropped from the car and suddenly jumped into the water from the bridge. The vehicle and the driver have been taken to Adeniji Adele Police Station for further investigation.

“There are efforts to recover his body from the Lagoon,” he said adding that LASEMA's general manager, Mr Adesina Tiamiyu, had said a proper investigation into the incident would be carried out.

Meanwhile, a user on Instagram who must have been at the scene of the incident, wrote: “I witnessed the worst thing ever today!! The owner of this particular car jumped into the lagoon right in front of me!!! I saw him get out of his car, then jumped, I was directly behind him, I parked and ran as fast as my legs could carry me but it was too late…..

"I wish he had waited a little longer, I wish I was able to stop him, I wish I was about to hold his hands, I wish he could tell me what the problem was!!!!!

"Depression is real…… I couldn’t believe my eyes, I’m still in shock, I couldn’t control my tears. I ran after him I tried to save him I called for help. Su*cide is not the answer!!!!! It’s a pity a problem shared isn’t a problem solved anymore it’s a problem gossiped about……we now live in a world where negativity is like 90 percent.

"I really wish I was able to save him. Loads of people stopped because they saw me acting like a crazy woman, the ambulance was present, the fishermen were trying to help but it was too late!!!!! He left a note on his personalized Dr’s notepad with his house address.

"May God help his family though this difficult time. Please, let’s be our brothers keeps. Let’s genuinely love and help one another. Life is short. We are here for just a little time. Let’s spend that time spreading love and being kind to one another!”

Elombah.com gathered that shortly before the incident, the man had received a call from someone.

The man, who was said to be returning from the church, allegedly stopped the car, a Nissan X-trail with registration number LND 476 EE before diving into the lagoon.
