FRCN Journalist Jumps Into Lagos Lagoon From Third Mainland Bridge

Valentine Chinyem



A journalist who works for the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) yesterday jumped into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

The deceased who was not named, was said to be in a bus traveling with his colleagues when he pretended as if he wanted to urinate after disembarking from the bus, and immediately dived into the lagoon.

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command responded immediately to the incident, but could not rescue the reporter.

After a joint effort by Marine Police and local divers, his corpse was eventually recovered and has been taken to the Ebute Ero Police division.

Spokes man for the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Kehinde Adebayo, said the deceased has been deposited in the mortuary.
