An operative of the Police Rapid Response Squad has rescued an unidentified Nigerian man from committing suicide on the third mainland bridge.
In a recent picture that was circulated online. Some members of the RRS team were pictured with the man that was stopped from taking his own life.
Many would think what could have led a man to take such a decision of taking his own life without a second thought. The frustration that people face in this country is overwhelming. Life is not fair to everyone equally. Some seem to enjoy a fair share of life than others.
The unidentified man was persuaded by men of the Rapid Response Squad to give life another chance.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time such a scenario would play out on the third mainland bridge. Some years back, precisely two years back. A Lagos doctor committed suicide by jumping off the bridge. The body of the dead doctor was found at the water shore after three days.
It didn’t take time before the news of the dead doctor spread like a wide fire in harmattan. Thereafter, it was as if the doctor opened the eye of Nigerians to suicide. The suicide news of one Ariyibi Ayomide Grace, a 100 level student of the University of Lagos found its way to the media. Just about the time that Nigerians are getting over that, another a case was reported. This time, about a final year student at Ladoke Akintola University, identified as Adesoji Adediran. All these people were not opportune to have somebody to persuade them tomorrow will be great.
Fortunately, this Nigerian man was rescued by the RRS team before he jumped off the bridge.
Reasonably, the man has been taken to Adekunle Police station after efforts have been made to contact his family.
