He said, “The man jumped into the lagoon around 7.24am. He was rescued by some fishermen and transported to Ebute Ero by LASWA officials. After several hours of trying to resuscitate him, he, unfortunately, passed on.

“The man’s identity could not be ascertained. He apparently resorted to the action out of frustration. His body was handed over to officials of the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said the case was not reported to the police.

The Public Affairs Officer of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Mahmud Hassan, said some officials of the agency witnessed the incident.

He advised people against taking their own lives.

“People should learn to speak out whatever their problem is and they should seek help before it is too late. When there is life, there is hope,” he added.
