Photo of a Nigerian medical Doctor who committed suicide by jumping into Lagos Atlantic ocean after receiving a strange call
In a sad suicidal move, a medical doctor, Allwell Orji, jumped into the Lagos lagoon on Sunday the 19th of March 2017.
The incident happened at 4:45pm on Third Mainland Bridge when 35-year-old was on his way to Victoria Island where he was going to attend a Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) meeting.
Oji, who left from his house at Abule Ijesha in Yaba, was said to have told his driver, Henry Ita, to park his Nissan Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) marked LND476EE at the Adeniji Adele end of the bridge on the excuse that he wanted to pee.
As he came down, the doctor was said to have climbed the bridge’s rail guide and jumped into the ocean.
Orji is said to be a staff of the Isolo branch of Mt. (Mount) Sinai Hospital.
A commercial bus passenger, who gave his name as Uche Magnus, said the doctor jumped into the ocean immediately after he came down from his vehicle.
Magnus said: “I saw everything clearly from where I sat in the commercial bus I was in. The man came down from his jeep and jumped into the water instantly. We all screamed and begged the commercial bus driver to stop. I saw the man when he jumped but nobody could identify the spot where he drowned in the ocean.” _
In the ensuing confusion, Ita was said to have called Oji’s mother and pastor. Both arrived the scene some 30 minutes after. It was learnt that the sympathisers at scene called the Lagos Police emergency unit, which deployed Rapid Response Squad (RRS) riders and marine police to the scene.
When we got to the scene at 5:30pm, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), RRS Area Alpha Commander and Officer-in-Charge of Marine Police Team were coordinating rescue operation. The response team of the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority (LASEMA) was also at the scene.
At 5:50pm, Orji's SUV and his driver were moved to the Adeniji Central Police Station.
