An unidentified man has been captured jumping into a lagoon in Lagos state after he was allegedly accused of stealing. As reported, the man took his life on Saturday night at Idumota bridge.
A Facebook user identified as Ngozi Blessing captured the moment before the man jumped into the river.
According to video post shared by Blessing, the man resorted to suicide because he was accused of stealing a huge amount of money which he denied knowledge of.
In a text accompanying the video, Blessing wrote: “He was saying in oyinbo that they framed him that he stole a huge of money which he did not and they said they give him 24 hours to refund the money and he did not steal and for him to eat once in a day is a problem that where did he want to get that kind of money from within 24 hours so he is tired of life and he jumped down the bridge, it happened yesterday night at Idumota bridge in Lagos island. I am tired of this country the man just wasted his life”.
It was observed in one of the videos as the man explained to onlookers the reason he decided to give up his life. According to him, he became frustrated after being accused of stealing money he cannot afford to pay back.
The man lamented that despite going to the Police station to prove his innocence, he was still asked to look for a way to repay the money.
The man was captured to have said, “Where I was living, they accused me of stealing, I told them I am not the one that stole it. I was arrested by the police and I was asked to say my side of the story. Despite that, they still threatened to kill me.”
However, all pleas by onlookers to discourage the man from committing suicide failed, as he dived into the river.
