The current of the Lagoon, according to divers was very strong and has not assisted the rescue efforts.

The call cab, Toyota Corolla, KSF 426 GB, ash colour has been taken to Adekunle Police Station, Yaba.

Earlier on, a 22-year-old man identified as Daibo Toju Davies had committed suicide by jumping into the Lagos Lagoon from the Third mainland Bridge.

It was learnt that the man had boarded a car-hailing service, Uber, from Mercy Hospital, Gbagada to a destination in the state.

While the driver was commuting him to his destination, Daibo told the driver to park on the Third Mainland Bridge because he had a stomach ache.

After parking, he disembarked from the vehicle and jumped into the ocean around 11am.

In a press statement earlier, the Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Nosa Okunbor, confirmed the incident, saying that rescue operation was ongoing.

He said, “The guy boarded Uber from Gbagada and when they got to the Third Mainland Bridge, he told the driver that he had stomach upset and that he needed to relieve himself. So when the driver parked, he got down from the vehicle, abandoned his belongings and jumped into the water.
