Lagos State Police Command operatives have arrested a middle-aged man who attempted to commit suicide.
The Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu, in a statement over the weekend gave the deceased’s identity as Akinlolu Ajayi, 54, an employee of Lagos State Development and Property Corporation (LSDPC).
Ajayi, resident of No.1, Owodunni Street, Oworonsoki, was seen on the Third Mainland Bridge trying to jump into the lagoon at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) waterfront.
The anti-crime patrol team of the Bariga Police Division on a routine patrol of the area rescued and took him into protective custody.
Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, appealed to members of the public not to take their own lives no matter the challenges.
The Police boss warned that such a condemnable act is not only morally wrong but also criminal.
“The suspect has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for investigation and subsequent prosecution”, the statement added.
