The body of a man named Olalekan Odunare, who jumped into a lagoon in Lagos’ Epe district, has been discovered, according to Ireportnews.
His body was discovered on Thursday. This development was confirmed by a family member who wished to remain anonymous. His death has also been confirmed by his family.
Olalekan is seen sitting on the handrail of the Lagos Bridge before jumping into the lagoon in a viral video seen by Ireportnews.
In the 30-second video, a voice can be heard asking Olalekan what was wrong with him, but he does not respond.
According to The Nation, Olalekan is a holder of an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and a worker at Alaro City, a mega estate along the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Many social media users were perplexed as to why the person filming did not attempt to rescue him instead of making a video of him.
The Lagos State Police Command, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, and the Lagos State Waterways Authority have yet to comment on the matter.
