Police prevent man from committing suicide in Lagos
Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command, on Tuesday, stopped a yet-to-be-identified man from jumping into the lagoon.
It was learnt that the man pretended to be picking something from the floor of the Third Mainland Bridge while he was forcing his head through the railings.
Policemen, who were not far away from the scene, were said to have rushed to the man and prevented him from jumping into the lagoon.
It was gathered that the Rapid Response Squad operatives, who apprehended the man, handed him over to cops at the Adekunle Police Station for investigation.
An eyewitness, Salami Ogundele, said he saw the man while driving on the bridge, noting that he did not know what the man was trying to do at the time.
He explained that he had to stop his vehicle when he saw some policemen running to the man through his car mirrors.
Efforts to reach the state Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, proved abortive as he neither answered calls placed to his telephone nor responded to text messages sent to him.
However, the Divisional Police Officer, Adekunle Police Station, Maria Agbor, said if our correspondent wanted information on the man, he should come to the station.
