An unidentified man committed suicide on Thursday morning in Lagos, Nigeria’s largest commercial city, jumping over the busy Third Mainland Bridge, into the Lagoon, as many motorists made their way to work, an eye witness told happenings.com.ng .
“The incident happened so fast no one could believe we had just witnessed a suicide incident, as the unidentified man alighted from his car, and jumped over the barrier and took a dive into the lagoon,” the eye witness said.
The motorists who witnessed the incident had stopped along the bridge, resulting in a heavy traffic situation, drawing major attention on Gidi Traffic, a social service twitter handle on traffic reports.
Here are some of the comments on Twitter:
