The body of Mr. Oluseye Adekunle, who jumped into the Lagos Lagoon on Friday was, yesterday, recovered by the State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA). The Managing Director of the Lagos State Waterways Authority, (LASWA) Damilola Emmanuel, said; “The deceased lived in Ondo State. He came to Lagos for a church programme. His body has been retrieved. It’s now left for the police to carry out further investigations. Our advice to Nigerians, especially Lagosians, is that the present circumstance in the country doesn’t warrant suicide. No matter what happens, people shouldn’t take their lives. On our part, we will intensify monitoring of the waterways to avert such recurrence of incident.”
The family members of the deceased are said to be in shock over his death.
Emmanuel said that the state might consider installation of more CCTV on the bridge and under bridges with a view to monitoring the waterways.
