The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency on Monday called for useful information concerning the alleged suicide on the third Mainland Bridge lagoon in Lagos.
The General Manager of LASEMA, Mr Adesina Tiamiyu, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that there had not been any concrete information regarding the incident making the round.
Tiamiyu said that anybody with useful information of any missing person should report to the nearest police station or any office of the agency.
He said that such information would give the agency the hint on the incident.
“We are still carrying out our search and rescue at the lagoon. Both the Marine Police and the Lagos State Waterway Authority are still there to see if there is any floating body,’’ Tiamiyu said.
He said the owner of the Ford Explorer Sports Utility Van (SUV) trending on the social media had nothing to do with the incident.
“He was only trying to help. He and his wife are okay,’’ he said.
NAN reports that there is a news about a lady who packed her car on the 3rd Mainland Bridge at about 6 p.m. on June 10 and jumped into the lagoon.
The Lagos State Police Command had earlier on Monday said it had commenced investigation into the report that an unidentified lady allegedly packed her car on the third mainland bridge and jumped into the lagoon.
SP Chike Oti, the Command’s Spokesman, told NAN that though the police had not received any official report, they were already making efforts to find out the true story.
He said that the report of their investigation would be made public as soon as the police find anything.
“There is no official report yet. It is the news making the rounds. However, our rescue team is searching, divers and Marine policemen are working.
“Investigation is ongoing, findings will be made public please,” the police spokesman told NAN.
