A yet-to-be identified man was prevented from commiting suicide by patrol officers of the Lekki Concession Company (LCC) after he attempted to jump into the Lagos lagoon from the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge, on Wednesday.
In a video posted by the company on its Twitter handle, the man was seen being urged not to jump into the lagoon by some onlookers.
In the video, a female officer was heard saying: “You’re a man, you’re a man. Don’t jump. Your future is bright, don’t jump. Your future is very bright.”
