Man Jumps To His Death Over The Bridge on sighting Taskforce In Lagos

Na wa o! Things fear can do to one ehn. An unidentified Hausa man from Adamawa state jumped over the Obalende Bridge in Lagos on Thursday at about 6:30 p.m and died instantly, on sighting operatives of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences, thinking that they were after him.

A trader who was watching the Taskforce Officials from atop the bridge reportedly said they were dislodging street traders and illegal motorcycle operators under the bridge beside the Oando Filling Station and suddenly another Taskforce Officials’ patrol van appeared in the opposite direction.

The late trader thought the Taskforce Officials would arrest him, so in a bid to escape, he jumped over the bridge and landed on top of the iron beautification barriers under the bridge.

He sustained serious injuries on his head and other parts of his body and died instantly. His death immediately led to a mob attack on the taskforce officials, who latter ran through the 3rd Mainland Bridge.
