The eye witnesses who spoke with a reporter from The Republican News said that  he did not leave any suicide note so, people are unaware of the motive for the suicide.

Another witness said that he it is obviously the economic situation in the country. They said that things have not been the same for them since the present economic hardship started.

This is another incident of suicide that is blowing through the country like a whirlwind from all angles and among people from all walks of life in the country.

Barely less than two weeks ago was the case of a medical doctor, Dr Allwell Orji, who jumped off the bridge into the Lagos lagoon and drowned. Dr Orji had history of clear depression and has attempted suicide before too.

Then, two days after the demise of Dr. Orji two women in Lagos tried to jump off the bridges into the lagoon in Lagos in a similar fashion as Dr Allwell Orji. This pushed the Lagos commissioner of police to ban people loitering or parking their cars on the bridges in Lagos. In all these incidents, a very stringent economic hardship is very limpidly a cause for concern.
